At last-the sequel to The Witches of Karres. Three top writers continue the bewitching adventures begun in one of science fiction's most beloved novels. First time in paperback. It just wasn't fair! Captain Pausert had foiled the deadliest of space pirates and eliminated the threat of the Worm World, yet his troubles kept piling up. Sent on a secret mission to stop the nanite plague, a self-aware disease that could devastate whole worlds, he quickly found that someone had convinced the Imperial Fleet that he was actually a wanted criminal, which led to a battle leaving his ship in urgent need of repairs. And while Goth and the Leewit, two of the notorious witches of Karres, could do amazing things, ship repair was not in their line. So he stopped at the next planet for repairs, but found that somehow his bank account had been cut off, and the authorities were looking for someone matching his description. There was only one thing to do-join the circus! An interstellar traveling circus, that is. All the galaxy loves a clown-as long as Pausert, Goth and the Leewit can keep their disguises from slipping. The show must go on-or the galaxy is doomed!… (més)

A well done sequel to The Witches of Karres. They maintained the feel of the original book. Same strengths and weaknesses. A fun read, but not a book I'd recommend to my friends to rush out and read. ( )

This gets an extra star because it is a sequel James Schmitz’s 1966 classic The Witches of Karres and it is good to see the old characters come alive again. I enjoyed this sequel for the most part and would recommend it to anyone who really liked Witches but it falls short of the original. The plot (which I won’t give away as a spoiler) is a bit shaky and feels contrived. The main characters lack the charm they had and diverge from the personalities Schmitz built for them in subtle but perceptible ways. The minor characters feel cartoonish and two dimensional. You can see how the authors attempted to recreate the feel of the original 1960’s space opera and I applaud the effort but I’m afraid they couldn’t quite pull it off. ( )

Ouch. Dreadful hack work, painful to read. Possibly worth it, if you like the origianal a lot. ( )

Acceptably adequate sequel to 'The Witches of Karres' by James H. Schmitz. ( )

...everyone else, even Goth and the Leewit, was acting as if they really were children who had run away to join the circus.

Even Vezzarn! He didn't have an act at all, and as a consequence, didn't have much choice but to muck out animal cages to earn his way. But when Pausert asked him, in the middle of shoveling out several tons of fanderbag manure, if he wasn't nearly dying with eagerness to get the Venture fueled and fixed and get gone, he looked up with astonishment.

"What, Captain? And give up show business?"
