Publisher's Summary

Voyage from Yesteryear is a 1982 science fiction novel by the author James P. Hogan. It explores themes of anarchism and the appropriateness of certain social values in the context of high-technology. The inspiration for the novel was the contention that the ongoing conflict in Northern Ireland had no immediate practical solution, and could only be solved if the children of one generation were somehow separated from their parents, and hence did not learn any of their prejudices.

Hogan's best and deepest story

How could humanity overcome its history of war and hatred? By a fresh start on a planet four light years away. Worth a listen!

Fine 80s Space Opera

A classic Hogan story from 1982 mixing a few then-new ideas (reconstruction of human ova from digital storage, weak AI + advanced robotics, and a few almost cutting edge communication & personal computing concepts) with classic SF tropes — science good, military bad, robotic interstellar probes, STL human travel in armed generation ships, light terraforming, advanced controlled nuclear fusion, etc. Hogan tells a good story and ties together all his plots with a minimum of pseudo-science handwaving until the very end. A strong example of Hogan’s early work.

The narration is acceptable but, as others noted, the odd flow in some sections and pronunciation of a few words (notably “Terr-ann”) are disappointing quirks in an otherwise good performance.
