The planet Ishtar has three suns, and the third is Anu, the Demon Star, which is usually so far away that it is just a bright star in the sky. But once every thousand years it comes close. Then, its heat brings the "Fire Time", when the barbarian nomads in the tropic regions must flee their scorched lands, and all civilization crumbles into chaos. This time, things could have been different -- for this time the humans have discovered Ishtar and brought with them their magical technology. Too bad that the humans are suddenly faced with a war of their own, their very own "Fire Time".

I read this book back in the drought of 1987. It helped me appreciate the experience a little better. I have so many books that It would take a novel to write a review on each one. I do like this writer and thisismy favorite book from him. Read full review
