  1. as:  Welten-Vagabund.  München, Zürich:  Droemer Knaur, 1979, 143 p., paper.  [German]

 

A space opera with philosophical overtones about a hobo who escapes from an alien enslaved earth and travels to the stars.  Author and critic Marion Zimmer Bradley wrote about the book: “To visualize the completely unknown and then to put it clearly and precisely into words-this is the impossible task which Jack Dann has set himself, and which, to an incredible degree, he manages to accomplish.  In one sense it will remind the reader of Le Guin’s The Lathe of Heaven, the evoked sense that the Universe is to a large degree what you believe it to be; in yet another sense it will remind the experienced reader of Poul Anderson’s Tau Zero, the bewildering and blinding sense of being overwhelmed by the sheer size and power of the unknown.”  Although complete in itself, this was to be the first of a trilogy.  The two books which were to follow, although outlined, were never written.

A metaphysical dream quest that begins in the chaos of Hell, just outside the borders of the small medieval town of Junction, and ends in a transmogrified New York City.  Barry N. Malzberg wrote that “Junction is a bildungsroman in reverse; its protagonist journeys to and eventually dwells in a hell which is not metaphorical; the devices of science fiction are used for the metaphysical.  It is a rigorous and deadly trap of a novel….”  The late Philip K. Dick wrote that “Junctionis where Ursula Le Guin’s Lathe of Heaven and Tony Boucher’s “The Quest for Saint Aquin” meet…and yet it’s an entirely new novel, a good one, an exciting one, and even an important one….It delightfully deconstructs your notions of time and space and reality in ways I myself never thought of, but would have liked to.”
