    About “Charles Freedom Long”

    1. Charles Freedom Long

      I write Science Fiction about what might be Psionics, aliens and other worlds, awareness and ongoing communication between the living and the dead as a fact of daily life, and how that might affect the life and philosophy of a world This is where I say I have one piece of paper that says I m a psychologist and another that says I m a medium I ve lived and worked in the U.S, Canada, England and Africa And learned that what we might think is the way it is, ain t necessarily so I talk with dead people all the time So my books are meant to both entertain and crack open new doors of thought, to take readers to another realm of existence, where life continues beyond the change we call death To provoke thinking outside our normal conventions.

    1. Alvar's Spear by Charles Freedom Long is the second book in the series. I read the first book and loved it and loved this one too. It has a bit of things of our world and bits of an alien world. It has action, adventure, suspense, mystery, and more. I loved the world building and characters. I really enjoyed the way the author presents the information also, his style is different and enjoyable. Great job!


    2. Very enjoyable! As this book is set thirty years after Dancing With The Dead, I expected it would be a sequel. Happily, while it does have a couple of characters from Dancing with the Dead, this is a standalone novel set in the same Seven Worlds universe with a very different story line. No reader will feel lost if this is the first of the Seven Worlds book they read – I love when an author can pull that off!This book (again) reminds of CJ Cherryh’s writing in that Cherryh often writes scien [...]


    3. In Alvar's Spears written by Charles Freedom Long, I was readily attracted by the great many diacritic mythical names throughout the book. So much so that it took me to another realm of existence. This realm is governed by six other moons, including a twin moon. It is where sophisticated life thrives, but bleed blue when they are hurt; ancient spirits touch their souls in need of solace. It is not our world, yet another who are just as advanced in scientific knowledge as we are. Aware of the DNA [...]


    4. Gar is a respected scientist on the Antal homeworld of Alvar, despite his status as a despised goldeneye. Favoured by Queen Hakan and working in an area of genetics dear to the silvereye ruling class, he is protected from much of the class hatred festering in the Antal race. However, underneath the veneer of the respected and respectable geneticist lies the leader of a revolution; a leader on a deadline to prevent the eradication of his entire race at the goddess Alvar’s hands. The Antal hive [...]


    5. Alvar’s Spear, by Charles Freedom Long, a sci-fi fantasy, is Star Wars quality action. Alvar’s Spear takes us into the future where sentient races are at odds, where the ultimate fate awaits entire worlds unless one person, Gar, a hybrid, can find a way to save his world before it is too late. Wonderfully written, elaborately detailed, filled with engaging dialogue, heated passion and action.Synopsis: Gar, a hybrid of more than one race, is given a mission to save his home world from being e [...]


    6. A blend of sci-fi and fantasy on an endangered far off worldThe story starts as the protagonist, Gar, spots a group that is messing with the ecosystem of Alvar, a populated moon in a far off solar system. After a fight and being chased by giant snow wolves, Gar is contacted by the sentience of Alvar, telling him that only he can save the moon by becoming Alvar's Spear. Thus starts a tale that is about 80% sci-fi and 20% fantasy.The sci-fi contains some great action with spaceship battles, laser [...]


    7. "Alvar's Spear" is an epic science fiction adventure of the highest quality. Charles Freedom Long has written an epic science fiction book filled with truth, failure, hope, danger, life, love, death, redemption, and enough twists and turns to create a rollercoaster of literary satisfaction. He paints another world, with a few shocking similarities to our own, with the same sort of ambition with which Isaac Asimov wrote the foundation trilogy. This is not a quick read. Alvar's Spear is a big book [...]


    8. In 1961, in his Hugo Award winning novel, A Canticle For Leibowitz, Walter M. Millar boldly stated, “You don’t have a soul . . . You are a soul. You have a body, temporarily.” Alvar’s Spear asks the questions, “What if planets were the bodies of sentient beings?” “What if” planets had emotions? Desires? Just like us? “What if” sentience were more wide-spread than we think? What then?


    9. Alvar’s Spear by Charles Freedom Long is full of intrigue and adventure. Some of the concepts are so well imagined that they confront the reader and cause them to consider things which they might not have considered before. The world the author builds is a place of alien strangeness, but the characters that inhabit the book come across as having all the attributes (and all the flaws) of humanity. Ego, deceit, revenge and ambition are all there, in ample amounts. It is not my intention to ruin [...]


    10. The sequel to Dancing with the Dead lives up to my high expectations. Like the first book, it combines tense sci-fi action with deep spiritual and philosophical musings on social and environmental justice, individualism, community, and more.This volume is connected to the first book through several characters but can be enjoyed as a stand-alone story. The main character, Gar, is a goldeneye, an Antal/Terran hybrid with the tall bipedal feline looks of an Antal but with the five-fingered hands an [...]


    11. This book is an epic science fiction adventure that hits on so many levels. It is action packed with hard-core science fiction adventure, sensuality, mysticism and a feel I rarely get outside of reading the classics. If I could compare the reading experience I would have go with Dune and Blade Runner based loosely on some parallels, but mainly on the writing and the feel of the book. The originality of the book goes w/o saying though; the Universe created by Long is fascinating and I look forwar [...]
