Not an indicator of Brunner's later strengths, much less the occasional high points in his earlier pulp novels. Medicore, rather unexceptional, and forgettable, neither a great nor a terrible read. Something to look into for Brunner completists, but not a SF requirement. I read this book many years ago and at the time was unacquainted with the stories of H.

A lovely little classic, three and half stars. The Atlantic Abomination is good! Disregarding some prejudices from its time: the role A lovely little classic, three and half stars. Disregarding some prejudices from its time: the role of the woman character only as the protagonist romantic counterpart, it has some good retrofuturistic ideas which makes worth the reading.
View 1 comment. Brunner's been my 'new' favorite SF writer for awhile now so I don't mind considering one of his works to be borderline mediocre since all in all I like his work immensely. THIS is possibly the 'worst' thing I've read by him yet. That sort of thing. The Atlantic Abomination has a "Cast of Characters" near the beginning. I assume the Cast was imposed by Ace on these bks. That's probably of little interest to just about anyone but me but I find such formal devices vaguely important as cultural dating signs. My "potboiler" accusation is exemplified by this type of prose: "How many times had the weaklings of this world fled cowering before the wrath of Ruagh and others of his kind?
It was of no comfort to recall and count such occasions. Now he, Ruagh—the unquestioned master of thousands—was himself in flight, before the terrible and not-to-be-withstood anger of blind nature. For a moment they kept straight faces, but at length they burst into helpless laughter. He always seemed like a straightlaced kind of prig to me.
Say, these are delicious. At any rate, there was also a London-based underground sex magazine called "The Pearl" July December during the Victorian era that's pretty spicy. One of the more interesting things about this novel for me is that there's a near future in wch nuclear bombs are tightly controlled by international agreement - something that Brunner, as an anti-war activist, wd've certainly endorsed: ""I'm not going to authorize the construction of a nuclear missile without UN approval," the president said bluntly.
How about conventional missiles? Is there any way of pinpointing the exact location of the monster? The wide streets, laid out anew after the great disaster of '65, when a missile from the coastal defense base fell during practice firings and wrecked the heart of town". The political situation of this future is further hinted at: ""What's the President doing?
Reports are he will broadcast to the nations this evening. Feeling the habit of marching taking over from his conscious volition, Peter had visions of other armies of history. They had thought men were finished with such cruel stupidity. Perhaps this last time was going to set the seal of guarantee on the hope.
Now, there's a future I'd like to live to see! I don't expect it, tho. As a widely read 60 yr old who was only born 8 yrs after the end of WWII, some aspects of this bk are understandable in ways to me that might not be to a younger reader: "What had made the master single these out?
