Otherwhere

(1991)
(The second book in the Others series)
A novel by

 
Publisher's Weekly
In The Others , Bonanno chronicled the encounter between the People, a colorful and violent species, and a colony of high-tech, nonviolent aliens (Others) discovered on the People's planet. This sequel opens after a cultural backlash has killed all but 9413 Others. The survivors hope to establish a refuge in the arctic wastes, and Lingri the Chronicler alternates between recording their journey and remembering the interactions that brought them to this state. Lingri herself was perhaps the major factor in shaping the current Other/People relationship, so her remembrances are highly revealing. Bonanno writes with a verve that makes both sequences easy to follow--provided one has read The Others --and hard to put down. Unfortunately, a disjointed plotline undercuts the effectiveness of the novel's philosophical speculations; perhaps the next book will bring things together again.

Library Journal
Seeking refuge in the polar regions of their world, the peaceful race known as Others strives to remain hidden from the humans who have nearly succeeded in exterminating them. Bonanno's sequel to The Others ( LJ 9/15/90) continues to explore the causes of a war-to-the-death between two intelligent races--one of which refuses to fight. Most of the ''action'' in this thoughtfully written novel takes place in the past; the final chapters serve as a teaser for a third volume. Recommended, along with the previous title, for most sf collections.
