Stranded On Haven isn’t high literature, just a cracking good tale of some poor schlub stranded in a ship full of goodies that he doesn’t really know how to deal with. They find a colonized planet and hi-jinks ensue. Yeah, this is pop-corn-lit. The story might have too many breaks that go in Jerd’s favor. He might be a little too good to be true. There may be plot holes and handwavium, but these days a feel good story might be just what the doctor ordered.
Two years later and I remember it as a fun read and good enough to keep me reading on in Zellman’s oeuvre. You might grab a sample yourself and see what you think.
