Seriously, I can't believe the Nobel Prize Commitee overlooked this book. I know that sounds like hyperbole, but when you've read The Inferior, I'm sure you'll agree it deserves that degree of recognition and more. It is, of course, a good story told well, but it also invokes resonance with several works of classic literature without being heavy-handed. It's perfectly readable, and yet profoundly reminiscent of Don Quixote, Dante's Inferno, and Golding's Lord of the Flies, as well as several standards of Twentieth-century Science Fiction. But don't let my high praise frighten you. The Inferior is very much down-to-earth; a story of adventure and experience that is as entertaining and enjoyable as it is meaningful. It could easily become one of the standards by which subsequent literature of the Twenty-first Century will be evaluated.
