Doomsman/Telepower

By Harlan Ellison

Rating: 2 stars

(Note: my copy only included Doomsman. Telepower was not included)

A feral Argentinian child is hunted down and brought to AmericaState’s feared School for Assassins to be trained. He is to join an elite that are sent in to decapitate the petty monarchies that have sprung up on the American continent since the War, but when a chance remark lets slip something about the father he never knew, he knows he must track him down and join him.

I don’t have a huge amount to say about this book. It didn’t leave many lasting impressions, although I was impressed with how Ellison was able to convey the harshness and brutality of this world, and his antihero, with such a light touch and sparing language.
