In the 25th Century mankind fought against the hated telepathic slan race in the fierce slan-wars. The result was the extermination of almost all slans, and the establishment of a world-wide police state. Now in the 30th Century, slan Jommy Cross has escaped extermination and is now living in the world of cruel humans. Jommy was determined to avoid detection, track down other surviving slans and with them, solve the mystery of the slan's strange existence and superiority. Download and start listening now!

    " Like a lot of sci fi, especially early sci fi, Slan suffers from wooden dialogue and flat characters. Interesting plot and premise, though. "

    " Slan is one of the greats of science fiction. Reading it now it seems somewhat trite, an overly familiar plot, but that's because so many other authors copied this novel. "

    " it had a cool idea for a story, but it was just boring. also, jommy cross. i hate you jommy cross "

    " I know this is very old, but I can't see how Slan ever received the status of an SF classic. The cookie-cutter characters only exist to try and explain the sorry excuse for a plot in unbelievably stilted fashion. Don't get me started on the ending. "

About the Author

A. E. van Vogt (1912–2000) was a SFWA Grand Master. Part of John W. Campbell’s stable of writers for Astounding Science-Fiction magazine, van Vogt was one of the most prolific, yet complex, writers of the genre’s mid-twentieth century golden age. He is often named, along with Isaac Asimov and Robert A. Heinlein, one of the top science fiction writers of all time.
