I thought this was a really silly book. Watson presents us with standard aliens out of UFO lore, combined with Jung's theory of UFO's (thus having his cake and eating it) and an Egyptian order of followers of Rūmī, and seems to take it all quite seriously and uncritically. None of the characters does anything remotely interesting, and there is a tremendously poor scene with an American cop. Really one to avoid.

I would, however, recommend his short stories. Particularly the collection that included "People of the Precipice"...

I concur - I really hated this one when I read it back when it came out.

I enjoyed this when I read it in the mid-1980s. I liked the total absurdity of the "explanations" for the aliens and the sense of shifting ontological sands (something it shares with His Master's Voice and Yellow Blue Tibia).
