- Tuf Voyaging by R. R. Martin – Can Martin write good Sci-Fi?
Martin created? Well, it seems that he likes sci-fi as much as fantasy. This book is made of short stories about the huge ECC ship and its captain. All that gives the captain a great opportunity to visit far off places, have a lot of conflicts and try to stay true to his morals.
From fighting to get to this warship to helping overpopulated worlds, from gladiator arenas to massive ecological battles with exotic monsters. And this Captain always has an ace up his sleeve. Our main hero is a tall, fat space trader that has a smooth and a bit formal way of talking.
This fix-up novel contains examples of:
He likes to plan and think one step ahead of everyone. And he might look selfish or even bad, but usually, our captain has a bigger picture in mind, and not just quick solutions.

And cats become a huge part of the story. Having different ways of acting Cats create a fun and interesting sidekick to our big problem space Hero. But Martin avoids these two problems by either naming things so we could easily understand We all know rice, so a more advanced version is just called SuperRice and not stopping to explain things we know or using technologies that are established before or already existing in our world. Because of this the characters and places feel real, lived in worlds that we just take a peek at. Call him Moses.
This story is just awful. Tuf takes an indentured slave, showing what an ass he is. He turns into a monster. Tuf is too wordy, the story is tedious, full of infodumps and takes forever to get to the point. Manna From Heaven. By this point I could hardly bring myself to read another one, but this was the last Tolly Mune story.
Tuf returns again to the planet of overpopulation, devices another solution. I have no reasons left to recommend these stories. This is clearly the work of a starting writer who is yet to develop a finer sense of character depth. The stories themselves are also rather bland and play out in predictable ways. The action is cartoonish and the universe gets no more than a surface-level presentation, full of second-rate tropes.
He is an arrogant, difficult man and seeing him being right gives no comedy or sense of justice. And he just gets worse as the stories unfold. They seemed intriguing at first glance, but even halfway through the first story I got a sinking feeling in my stomach that this was going to be bad. Seven Haviland Tuf stories was too much, because they are very repetitive as well.
