If you ve never heard of this series before if you ever see it on a shelf in a bookstore it s going to look like something left behind from another planet At least that s how it seemed to me More years ago than I d like to imagine I was browsing the shelves of a giant local chain bookstore and as is my nature my eye tended to focus on the large bricks of books since there s some weird part of me that conflates doorstop with mark of ineffable uality The title itself was both simple and odd Canopus in Argos Archives like it was some kind of scientific treatise And it turned out the brick was just an omnibus for five novels each of which had a title that seemed to have been translated from another language improperly Re Colonised Planet 5 Shikasta Even when the titles did correspond to what I imagined as actual English it gave no clue as to what the stories might be about But it sounded remotely like science fiction even though it was probably placed in the literature section only increasing its bizarre allure and as a younger man I thought SF was the only thing worth reading ever And this read like it should be SF but notI didn t buy it right away and when I did get around to it the volume had gone out of print And then I didn t read it for ten years after I bought it hey books have to take a number Now that I have I can pretty much say it s what I expected Back then I had no idea who Doris Lessing was although over time I figured out that was one of them literary types eventual Nobel Prize winner now sadly deceased Reading her introduction to this collection and other background notes it s clear that she became fascinated by what she charmingly calls space fiction which reminds me of something might a grandmother might say looking through her grandkids Buck Rogers comics or whatnot not only as a genre but as one that would allow her to tell certain kinds of stories that wouldn t be possible in the framework of straightforward realistic literary fiction It s an odd rule you can go all stream of consciousness you can tell stories forwards backwards sideways have hallucinations and dream seuences and unreliable narrators but as soon as you unironically start sticking spaceships into things you ve just demoted your novel to the kiddie tableWhat s heartening here is how unabashedly and completely Lessing embraced SF but in her own way The main characters are definitely aliens even if they talk like people Everyone visits other planets even if the spaceships are sometimes kept offscreen Eons are often covered in the expanse of a story There are competing galactic empires and enemy agents and spies There s enough SF so that you can t really mistake it for anything else but readers walking in thinking they are going to get standard SF will be utterly confused There s hardly any fighting or space battles and most of what passes for genre cliches are blissfully absent replaced by something wholly strange recognized only when viewed through skewed glass There s never a sense that she s slumming or talking down to the mouth breathing SF readers and in a world where other writers sometimes work hard to backpedal any elements in their books that might be remotely construed as SF and reassure people that No no I m writing about serious things even when they really have aliens and spaceships Lessing s attitude toward this is remarkably refreshing she simply feels this is the genre that best fits these particular stories she wants to tellStill reading them all in a row does reuire some adjusting SF fan or not None of them are geared toward telling a continuous story but rather a patchwork depicting the various relationships between Canopus the nice empire or less the Sirian Empire and the dark and dastardly Shammat all of which have various traits that are often contrasted with each other especially in their effects on alien societies At least three of them are written as field reports meaning that they can come across as rather dry in parts a relating of events that happened as opposed to a depiction of events that are happening and as they are reports imagine what your local real estate agent might write back as observations to his or her supervisors but from an alien planet instead Except most of the time we re the aliens As I said some adjusting is reuiredMost of it frankly screams didactic and your tolerance for the series for a whole may have to do with your appetite for stories that are blatantly a commentary on society and in that sense isn t much different from taking a Native American character from the 1700s and dumping him in London to see what hilarity ensuesWith that in mind the first book Shikasta is probably going to come across as the strangest as least until you get used to the style Told as a series of field reports spanning centuries it lays the basic template of Canopus and Sirius doing their best to influence other worlds before Shammat comes in to screw things up This was Lessing s first foray into SF and as such reads as extraordinarily bizarre one woman s take on a genre that she s familiar with and not really caring if she s following any of the rules or not The early section depicting what you eventually figure out is Earth s prehistory with the giants and castles and lead agent Johor walking around the ruins of previous civilizations has an eeriness to it as if she s tapping into some kind of lost memory It becomes less exciting when you do realize that you re on Earth and she s merely relating Earth s history but through the eyes of aliens the early sections feel so odd and unfamiliar that to realize she s observing WWII Germany feels like a bit of a letdown She does eventually move past that into the future and for me the novel finally comes alive when she starts to relate the story through the journals of a girl named Rachel These sections feel like they play to her strengths and include some honest human emotion giving the story that all the vaguely dippy Substance of We Feeling talk is lacking But I give her points for a try anything approachAbout every other story in here uses that journal format and so the in between tales like The Marriages Between Zones Three Four and Five almost act like palette cleansers People have commented that this one feels like a fairy tale and in a sense that s true The Zones are mentioned in the first book and seem to exist as metaphorical and spiritual areas and are places that Canopus feels the need to interfere regularly insisting that the ueen of Zone Three marry the militant prince of Zone Four and in turn he marries the tribal ueen of Zone Five Having actual people doing things like riding horses and having sex makes all the talk about Zones much palatable and since the focus of the story is gender relations and their interactions each Zone seems to have its own characteristics that affect each us as they intermingle it becomes a bit easier to relate to feeling like a fantasy tale that is bent on conveying its point of view If you can stomach all the talk about Zones it s actually rather charming and she does make you feel for the characters almost from the get go something that Shikasta struggled with for a bitThings flip back to Earth for The Sirian Experiments basically showing what the Sirians were doing on Earth during the first book they had taken over or were given the southern continents in the name of rampant scientific experimentation The oddly named Ambien II is one of the Five who run the empire Much of the book deals with depicting how Sirian singlemindedness they are vague fascist but not necessarily evil leaves it unable to view Canopus as anyone other than a competitor despite Canopus or less doing only nice things The central crux of the book is a series of interactions between Ambien II and her Canopus counterparts although the book doesn t heat up until the metaphors hit the fan and Shammat swoops in to take over and corrupt everything Those scenes have a tension that suggest Lessing is finally finding her footing in the format and telling a story instead of just telling us things that resemble a story Unfortunately they are few and far between but really liven up events when they do transpireThe Making of the Representative for Planet 8 is Lessing s tribute to the the ill fated to say the least Scott Antarctic expedition and reads like a feverish tone poem Told in a slow moving rush of words that occasionally breaks into a paragraph it takes us to a world that is dying Canopus instructs the world to build a giant wall and the narrator discusses the events as they circle the world near the wall watching their world slowly succumb to ice and cold and wondering when Canopus is going to swoop in and save them Much like Kate Bush Lessing apparently knows every word for snow and her descriptions of everyone trying not to think about freezing to death while everyone around them freezes to death is harrowing in its way It ends mystically which is about the only way something like this can end without everyone dying It also acts as a nice cleanser and I give Lessing credit for taking an idea and following it through to the bitter and weird endDocuments Relating to the Sentimental Agents of the Volyen Empire is what I want to name my band if I ever have one but also seems the most specific of the journal led novels Klorathy relates events back to Johor from another world where Canopus and Shammat and Sirius are once again vying for domination this time through a war of words There s of a sense of satire here but discussions of the effects of Rhetoric and ideas while not subtle seem to depict an avenue of metaphorical SF that was never uite taken It keeps the strangeness that marked the earlier novels but in the context of this novel makes it strange indeed as people come down with rhetorical diseases and have to be reeducated immersed in treatments at hospitals that may not take Klorathy acts like a calm man knowing that he s running out of time and while she can t keep the tone consistent I m never sure what s happening to Incent is supposed to be amusing or terrifying the interactions between the various factions are chilling watching them yank an otherwise clueless world this way and that in the name of dominance all the while claiming its for their own good The sense of narrative drive is strongest here and what it lacks in off the wall weirdness it makes up for in being a kind of coherent strange I can relate to with actual villains and conflicts as opposed to people telling me things that I m supposed to assume are standing in for something else here it s probably Communist RussiaI can t say that any of these completely worked as both novels and commentaries sometimes it seemed like Lessing was in a constant war to write SF and also craft meaningful critiues of society as she understood it and it s not always clear which side won But they are never less than interesting reading especially for SF fans who might wonder what is possible to do in a genre when you stop wondering about appealing to a certain fanbase or dealing with what the rules are The mass impact of these novels on the genre was probably about zero which is a shame in itself In a world where one man s spaceship empire war could easily be swapped out for another s trying something different should be less rare than it is And if the author never uite understood how different from the norm the stories are so much the better
