Several light-years west of the Earth's Sun lay the planet, Lucifer, circling a sun of its own .

Several light-years west of the Earth's Sun lay the planet, Lucifer, circling a sun of its own, circled by its own two moons. The five specially selected and trained passengers of the "Argo" found much on Lucifer to remind them of the Earth they had left eleven years before. Edgar Pangborn (1909 - 1976) Edgar Pangborn was born in New York City and pursued music studies at Harvard when just 15 years old. He went on to study at the New England Conservatory but did not graduate from either course.

Edgar Pangborn (February 25, 1909 – February 1, 1976) was an American writer of mystery, historical, and science fiction. Along with his older sister Mary, Edgar was homeschooled until 1919 and then educated at Brooklyn Friends School

West of the Sun" concerns six human astronauts stranded on the distant planet Lucifer, who must learn to survive along with the planet's two sentient native species. When a rescue ship finally arrives they decide they would rather remain to further develop the society they have established. Far from his best work, it is still lyrical, poignant and inspiring.

West Of The Sun. Pangborn's second novel (his first, the mystery "A-100," was published under the pseudonym "Bruce Harrison"). The novel is set in the Northeastern United States some centuries after an atomic war ended high-technology civilization. The novel follows its title character, Davy (who grew up a ward of the state and thus has no last name) as he grows to manhood in a pseudo-medieval society dominated by a Church that actively suppresses technology, banning anything that may contain atoms.

After eleven years in space, the Argo landed on the dangerous, unknown planet Lucifer. The crew faced an untamed world of huge, carnivorous birds with wolverine heads and flashing black teeth; furred, ten-foot-tall men; and red-skinned, man-eating pygmies.

They fought for mere survival. But their duty was to colonize and populate the planet . . . with four men and only two women!

Reviews:
  • Mr.Bean
This flight of fancy uses the wings of anthropology and politics to visit an almost paradise in which there is no need for car, houses or even clothes. Families are not multiracial, but multispecies as well. Of course all the unsocialized and uncivilized agressives among the varied species have been voted off the island. Since most of the thinking in the story is familiar to me as a child of the 60's, it was barely worth the effort of reading. The language is literate and the proofreading is solid.

This book was pretty well written and interesting. It's technology is dated but that doesn't detract from the story. The travelers from Earth, who knew they can never go back, met the two sentient species of beings and over time actually built a successful, almost model, civilization that treated all individuals with respect and dignity. Wish we could run our society today on that model. Granted, their society contained at most maybe one to two thousand members members so it is easier to manage than a large group. I grew to care about most of the main characters, especially Paul, who successfully led the resistance to an invasion by a large (many thousands) tribe of skilled war-like pygmies. He did this without resorting to unnecessary barbarism against the pygmies. Most scifi fans will enjoys this book. It provided a thought provoking look at how humans may someday need to deal with other sentient beings.
  • Fesho
I chose this rating , because giving GOD a last name, even in fanisy is not acceptable ! The story had a good selection of characters and a fairly developed story line. The book is not perfect, could use some massaging, but overall I did enjoy it.
  • Manris

  • Cordalas
