Space Vulture is a deceptively simple seeming tale of high adventure in the spaceways. The characters are armed with ray guns and fight zombie armies, all the while flitting from world to world, out of the frying pan and into the fire.
Its men are real men, its women real women and its little furry creature creatures from Alpha Centauri REAL little furry creature creatures from Alpha Centauri.
But at it's core, it's a love letter to a perceived simpler time and simpler stories that proves to be more complex than it's purposely streamlined prose would indicate, and populated by better, more nuanced portrayals of people than its source materials required.
Good fun, and good reading
