About book: I’m not sure when my desire to be a writer first sparked, but I can tell you when it roared into full flame; it was the day Mike Resnick spoke at my high school. I was a junior, and I’d been a voracious reader for years. The second was even more difficult; Mike Resnick has written a helluva lot of books. I loved it as a teen, but I hadn’t read it since, so I decided to continue my space opera binge by revisiting an old friend. Santiago is about several people all trying to find (and, in most cases, kill) the infamous titular space pirate.

stains and the tattered clothes, she was actually, quite a pretty girl. She had blue eyes that had seen too many things and shed too many tears, square shoulders that had borne too many burdens, slender fingers that would have been soft and white in a gentler life.

I love this book. This is the book that introduced me to the idea of Sci-Fi and Western blending wonderfully, especially in frontier stories.

But watch out for the Kindle edition. There's no table of contents. Instead of having indentions to show a new paragraph, the line just starts a tiny bit lower. And the new chapters don't start on a new page. They just continue on. But it's the lack of TOC that really bothers me. For an eBook, that should really be essential.
Read this book many times since it first came out. Always enjoy rereading it. Have two copies of the paperback (yellow cover), but picked up the Kindle version to make it easy to read again. Great book, highly recommend it.
It was worth a 5 to me. Good pace, good backstory even if you didn't know it at the time. I consider it interesting the tack Santiago takes to control the Democracy. Real Robin Hood stuff.
When I bought SANTIAGO, I was expecting a "space opera" type of novel. That is, a melodrama typified by shallow characterization, simple plot line and lots of action. What I wasn't quite prepared for was a "space western". That's what this is, though. It reads like a cowboy story complete with bounty hunters, a lawless frontier culture, and aliens calling themselves "the sioux nation" and living in teepees.
My first reaction was to laugh. The parallels are so blatant that it seemed comical. Resnick posits a galactic "frontier" where cheap, personal inter-stellar transportation is available and goes the whole nine yards in comparing it to the western frontier of the U.S. in the second half of the nineteenth century. It's like Dodge City goes galactic.
The surprising thing here is that Resnick actually pulls this off. It may seem a little corny at first (at least, it did to me), but overall it's entertaining and fun to read. Not only does the story move along at a good pace, but it is populated with some of the oddest and most intriguing characters imaginable. They aren't deep, but each is quirky and VERY different in his/her own way. Some are likable, some are at least sympathetic, some are downright despicable, but they're not boring. This progression of wierd characters is enough to keep the book from getting dull all by itself.
SANTIAGO isn't a deep, thought-provoking tale, but it is entertaining. I enjoyed it. It's fluff, but it works. If that works for you, give it a try. I recommend it as a good, light scifi read.
After reading the synopsis I had no idea what to expect out of this novel. A sci-fi western with alien indians and all kinds of random weirdness. After reading it I can say it is one of the finest sci-fi stories I have read, it is not hard sci-fi, it is not space opera and it is not realistic in the slightest either in plot or in technology. What it is however is hell of a lot of fun, it reminds me of a combination of Harry Harrisons stainless steel rat at its best with a slice of Terry Pratchett on top.
Who is Santiago? You might as well ask about the shark in Jaws - he's the huge presence in the background you only get glimpses of for much of the story, basically a myth that keeps getting bigger and bigger. And when he finally shows up, he's not what you expect! Nice story telling.

I may be biased as a fan of the rare but exciting space western,but this book is amazing. Not only is the story and writing of excellent quality but the characters and reasoning are all very well thought out and feel real.
After reading a portion of the reviews here, and without any spoilers, let me simply say,"Read this book!". I'm 56, have been reading sci-fi since Sputnik I was in the sky, and this is one of the best I've ever read. Nothing particularly profound, just good storytelling. Until now I considered Glory Road the best adventure story I'd read, now Santiago joins it at the top of my favorites list, and yes, it will be reread.
Thanks to Amazon for this feature. Customer reviews and viewing the first chapter before buying is a blessing for me, as book stores seem to be disappearing rapidly hereabouts.
