Hartmann the Anarchist: The Doom of the Great City

Hartmann The Anarchist, Or, The Doom Of The Great City - Edward Douglas Fawcett, Ian Bone, Stanley Donwood A disappointing read, after an introduction by Ian Bone so complimentary that he implies that Fawcett provides us with better anarchist science fiction than Ursula Le Guin. Though the plot quickly drives the reader through what in essence is a short story, the writing is so-so and the depiction of anarchists as blood-thirsty villains disappointing. The best part of the book were Stanley Donwood's illustrations.

NOTE: The author name has been typed into Goodreads as "Famcett" but is actually "Fawcett."
