The Gifts of the Gorboduc Vandal, by Paul O. Williams, copyright 1989; Del Rey/Ballantine Books, May 1989; ISBN 0-345-35597-0.
An interesting science fiction novel by the author of the post-apocalyptic Pelbar Cycle series of novels. Like the Pelbar novels, I enjoyed this more for the ideas than the style.
Apparently there is a sequel to this, The Man from Far Cloud, published in 2004. I really ought to see about finding a copy.
