OPUS#217 Star Kings, The [SK#1]

OPUS: #217
Title: The Star Kings
Author: Edmond Hamilton
Year: 1949
Type: NOVEL
Series: Star Kings
Series Number: 1

“It’s certainly glamorous to be called a “King of the stars,” but when you get right down to it, it’s the hardest title to maintain in the universe!”

「『スター・キング』で、一九四七年九月号に掲載された。このスペース・オペラは、一九三九年五月にスタートリング・ストリーズ誌上に発表された短めの長編「火星の囚人」”The Prisoner of Mars”の中ですでに利用したシチュエーションの焼き直しであった。(中略)ハミルトンの膨大な作品群の中で、このスペースオペラ叙事詩を大量生産尾の作品だと考えたなら、それは間違いであろう。ハミルトンが同じテーマを二度も取り上げ、『スター・キング』が一九四九年にハード・カヴァーの単行本として刊行される(当時としてはきわめて稀なことだった)栄誉にあずかった事実は、著者はこのテーマに対して抱いた関心のほどを示すと同時に、この小説の質のほどをも示している。 – ジャック・サドゥール著; 鹿島茂,鈴木秀治訳『現代SFの歴史』(早川書房, 1984.12) p. 187-188

「豪華スペースオペラの登場である。すでに百万語ものスペースオペラを書いてきたハミルトンは、それを芸術の域にまで磨きあげていた。スミスやウィリアムスンの品格と奥行こそないが、この作品は超弩級の冒険潭で、バローズのスタイルに近いものだった。(中略)読者からの反応は上々だったが、この作品は、パーマ配下のサイエンス・フィクションが、彼の就任以来、一歩も進歩していないことを示していた」 – マイク・アシュリー著; 牧眞司訳『SF雑誌の歴史 : パルプマガジンの饗宴』(東京創元社, 2004.7) p. 227-228
