De los tres tomos el más irregular Género RelatosLo ue nos cuenta El libro Visiones peligrosas III publicación original Dangerous Visions 1967 es la tercera parte de una famosa antología ue en español se publicó en tres volúmenes como su edición de 1969 y ue en la actualidad todavía se valora bastante por más ue el tiempo le haya pasado cierta factura debido a la naturaleza del proyecto pueden saber más auí con el recientemente fallecido Harlan Ellison como responsable de la selección del proyecto y de la introducción ue en este volumen es muy breve y habla de las implicaciones futuras de la antología pero también del comentario al inicio de cada uno de los relatos ue al final tienen comentarios de sus propios autores La primera parte es Visiones peligrosas I y la segunda Visiones peligrosas II¿uiere saber más de este libro sin spoilers? Visite De igual manera repito auí la reseña del primer tomo como hice para el segundoNo es fácil decir cuándo empezó la Ciencia Ficción Me adscribo a la opinión del Buen Doctor Asimov ue define a Frankenstein Mary Shelley como la primera novela de CF Una novela ue extrapola un tema científico y desarrolla el efecto del mismo en la historia y en sus personajes Pues coincide bastante bien con la definición del género para mi Y pronto siguieron muchos Verne por ahí ceruita Wells ue le dio un gran empujón Burroughs ue la impregnó de aventuraHasta ue empezaron las publicaciones exclusivas de CF sobre todo en el mundo anglosajón en los años 30 y ue desencadenaron la Edad de Oro hasta los años 50 y 60 Con el poderoso eje de Campbell y los nombres ue conocemos todos Asimov Bradbury Clarke Dick Heinlein Simak Sturgeon y ue aún son leídos Es la época de la inocencia en ue la historia es lo ue vale los personajes se van construyendo y el estilo está puliéndose recién Pero ue hipnotiza y encanta por la increíble profusión de ideas nuevas frescas sorprendentesPero el género evoluciona Personajes complejos historias atípicas ue se adentran en temas inexplorados e íntimos estilo sofisticados ue podrían provenir de cualuier rama de la literatura empezarán pronto a asomar la nariz Y algunos como Harlan Ellison tienen el suficiente genio para sentir ue las cosas están cambiando Así ue a fines de los 60 tiene la idea de crear una antología de cuentos nuevos nunca publicados ue rompan esuemas inesperados ue touen temas ue antes la CF no abordaba como el sexo o la religión ue provouenEl resultado es una peueña revolución Leyéndolos ahora no suenan tan provocadores Tienen aún el fuerte aroma de la Edad de Oro Pero sí hay un cambio Hay provocación aunue se le vea la intención tan claramente ahora Como la incorporación del sexo ue se ve tan ruidosamente provocador como del adolescente ue busca imponerse pero ue no termina de perder la inocencia Y la experimentación de estilos ue ya no son planos y puramente instrumentales a la poderosa historia pero no tienen la sutileza ue tendrán despuésEs una exploración disparada en 100 direcciones diferentes Con nombres antiguos como no pues el talento existía y puede adaptarse Asimov escribió la introducción y caballerosamente se puso a un lado Para dejar paso a otros a todos esos nombres nuevos ue dominarían el campo los siguientes años Niven Ballard Delany Leiber Silverberg Farmer Pohl junto con algunos de los antiguos Es casi una una segunda Edad de Oro Un segundo tomo seguiría unos pocos años después Ya en plena Nueva Ola como se llamaría el periodo durante los 70Así Ellison y sus visiones enlazan dos de mis épocas favoritas Los gigantes eternos e indestructibles de la edad de oro y los más sofisticados y profundos de la nueva ola En todo caso el resultado es ue la CF ya nunca fue la mismaEn mi caso ya no pude seguirla tanto luego de eso Me estanué en los 80 Leí Gibson claro aunue me perdí lo grueso del movimiento ciberpunk Y algunos como Philip K Dick seguían produciendo cosas excelentes Pero no mucho másué vendrá luego? Paradójicamente y de la mano de Gardner Dozois pasé directamente a los 2000 con poca transición La CF actual por lo menos los cuentos ue elige Dozois en su monstruosa selección anual lo ue es un cierto peligro al no permitirme otras visiones pero poco margen de exploración tengo ahora es sofisticada estilizada y densa Conocí nuevos nombres algunos notables como Vernon Vinge Greg Egan o las excelentes Nancy Kress o Catherynne Valente Disfruto muchos sus nuevas obras son buena literatura con buenas ideas Pero ya no siento ue son de la familiaSeguiré leyendo esos textos pulidos con personajes densos en historias nuevas Y lo haré con placer Pero recordaré con nostalgia la sencilla pero profunda alegría de descubrir una historia nueva como una moneda brillante como el sol y sencilla como la vida del Buen Doctor y del resto de la familia Esas historias ue se reflejan y se transforman al mismo tiempo en estas Visiones Peligrosas En general esta ha sido una antología de 4 en sus tres tomosLo ue más me sorprendió en este tercer tomo es como los relatos fueron de gustarme prácticamente nada a encantarme en los status podrán ver una peueña opinión sobre cada unoComo siempre este libro se comento de los temas más variados pero en todos hay un toue de lucha contra algo ya sea un determinado tipo de sociedad máuina y otra cosaLo ue más puede sorprender es la forma como algo tan simple como una enfermedad o un deseo pueden desencadenar innumerables hechos en tan pocas páginas y ese es mérito exclusivo de los grandes autores ue ha presentado auí Harlan EllisonComo he pensado yo dicho desde el inicio con esta revolucionaria antología de ficción especulativa creo ue no es algo para todo público pero sí es algo a lo ue todo el público debería prestarle atención al menos para descubrir unas cuantas plumas de oro entre sus páginasPara finalizar si saliera una edición especial de esta Antología con todas las de la ley en un tomo me la compraría sin dudarlo creo ue eso es bastante recomendación Al igual ue con el primer tomo de estas visione speligrosas acaba por ser algo ue no me convence para nada porue solo parecen historias rechazadas en su mayoria ue acabaron siendo publicadas aui por casualidad del destino pero ue en su mayoria no tiene ue ver con el titulo ni la tematica ue supuestamente engloba este recopilatorio Una colección algo irregular pero interesante de todos modos Está uizás más dirigida a los fans consagrados de la ciencia ficción más ue a los principiantes como yo Si este tomo es un buen ejemplo de lo ue es este género me uedo con la impresión de ue es mucho más diverso y profundo de lo ue creía pues esperaba entretenimiento puro sin demasiado fondo Prejuicios de una Me gustó más el primer libro de antologías Visiones peligrosas I este estuvo OKMi historia favorita fue la de Keith Laumer Prueba para la destrucción Tb fue un gusto leer El reconocimiento por J G Ballard la historia es normal pero es por como escribe el lo ue la hace sabrosa el cuento fue sombrío y eso se siente y se saborea En fin gracias Harlan Ellison Judas John Brunner 45 estrellas 19 05 2020 Ok what can I really say? This is the third and final part of the Dangerous Visions trilogy that is now treated as a single volume It is seen by many as a landmark anthology which marked the evolution of science fiction from one era to the next or as Harlan Ellison likes to suggest the transition of one generation of authors to the next though many of the authors wrote both before and after the anthologyThe book is a real mix of styles and subject matter so you can pretty much be guaranteed that you will like some and not so like others ok hate However the introductions of many of the entries are almost as interesting as the stories themselves This is a book to read if you are interested in science fiction as a subject and not just a genre This acclaimed anthology was split into three parts for paperback publication This the third is dominated by John T Sladek’s fantastic THE HAPPY BREED which is remarkable as it was his first ever SF story and because this part of the anthology also includes Ballard Brunner Sturgeon Spinrad Zelazny Laumer and Delany Overall DANGEROUS VISIONS now half a century old is filled with stories that while they may have been challenging then are obviously rather hit and miss now Nevertheless it remains one of the best ever SF collections Dangerous Visions? That sounds interesting And yet I've had this book for years without trying to read it I couldn't for the love of God tell you why I mean the first story is one by Theodore Sturgeon If you've read a science fiction anthologies you must surely have come across his name as well as JG Ballard Harlan Ellison John Brunner and Samuel R Delany they have all had a hand in the making of this anthology So with those words it is time to delve into the secrets of one of the most explosive science fiction anthologies ever publishedThis is a review in progress and I will post short reviews of all the stories within as I read them As always I shall start at the very beginning because is there somewhere better to start?If All Men Were Brothers Would You Let One Marry Your Sister? by Theodore Sturgeon 52 pagesA man Charli Bux has come to a small planet Terratu to see the Master of Archieves He has a tale to tell about a certain planet that doesn't really exist Well it does exist of course but for some reason people seem to shun it or better yet simply try and forget that it even exist at all I better stop here because if you know Theodore Sturgeon then you know that he likes to surprise you This story is no different although you'll see the surprise slowly approaching in the horizon I will say this though this story is controversial and while I can see some of his points have merits I don't agree But thats what a good story can do provoke you into thinking about the world and your life a little differently This certainly does that in a very down to earth way no pun intended Anyways don't cheat yourself go find this book or this story in another anthology and get something to think about 45 starsWhat Happened to Auguste Clarot? by Larry Eisenberg 7 pagesA journalist is writing a story about a chemist who disappeared one Auguste Clarot He finds him and finds the thing that he has been working on A very short story which comes with a warning I might not have understood the story because I don't understand the warning at all The writer himself says that this story might be riddled with symbolism but that was certainly lost on me Perhaps if I had read it at the time when it was written it might have been clearer 1 starErsatz by Henry Slesar 8 pagesAn atomic war has changed America if not the entire world Soldiers wander the wastelands only occasionally finding shelter in one of the few Peace Stations where civilians take care of them But the world is changing and so are its people Another short shortstory but this one manages to create a fully understood setting in just a few pages And the ending scary and lonely 35 starsGo Go Go Said the Bird by Sonya Dorman 8 pagesThe world has collapsed and people have lost themselves A woman is fleeing for her life People are hungry While she runs she looks back on her life remembering how one of her own children were killed and eaten This story is not as unbelievable as all that We only have to go back 300 years to find something similar in human history However let's hope that the world will never fall from grace like this 3 starsThe Happy Breed by John T Sladek 23 pagesImagine a society where everyone is happy or at least where everyone pretends to be happy Imagine a society where Man is rules by Machines This story tries to create a utopia but the uestion is is that even possible? The story is a bit confusing at times as it switches between so many narratives but the idea that it proposes is an interesting one 2 starsEncounter With a Hick by Jonathan Brand 7 pagesThis story is about hmm a man? who goes to some kind of intergalactic conference? to to no I didn't understand much of this story and there was nothing to get excited by or even worth remembering The only good thing really is that it is short very short and therefore uickly read and uickly forgotten Onwards 0 starsFrom the Government Printing Press by Kris Neville 9 pagesWe are inside the head of a young boy in the future He is three and a half but to him he seems to have been this old like forever His life consists of thoughts of candy his parents fears of the world and losing his penis If only he could hurry up and become four so he could forget and get his personality A very interesting story or rather a very interesting perspective To me the child's thoughts sounded a little too knowledgeable and I entertained the idea of this boy being invaded by an alien or rather an alien being trapped within this boy However after reading the afterword section you know that the author's idea is so much grounded I'd really like to recommend this story but if you are a hard science fiction aficionado then this might not be for you 3 starsLand of the Great Horses by RA Lafferty 13 pagesTwo men are walking in the desert somewhere in India when they see a mirage One of them Smith sees something and proclaims that it is time to go home home to the Land of the Great Horses Soon after weird disappearances happen all around the world I am not sure I would ever classify this story as being Science Fiction nor would I call it dangerous The words I would use would be akin to weird confused and hard to understand This might be a true gem but honestly I didn't and don't get it 1 starThe Recognition by JG Ballard 15 pagesA circus is coming to town but the narrator does not really understand what they are selling The animals are nothing special and the smell is horrible Ok the build up for this shortstory is awesome but the ending is just horrible and enormously disappointing I am not even sure why this story is here in a science fiction anthology called Dangerous Visions And here I was finally thinking that I had found a Ballard story that I might actually like I'll just have to keep looking 15 starsJudas by John Brunner 12 pagesSomewhere in the world a God sits on his throne This is not The God that people have worshipped for centuries but a metal god that Man made himself One day a man comes to talk to the God a man named Karimov He helped build the metal God but has come back now with different intentions I've already said too much perhaps but with a name like Judas I guess you know where this is going I like the writing of John Brunner especially his complex cyberpunk settings This one almost lost me in the beginning written in a much too complicated language but unlike the previous story this one got much better by the end and even ended up sounding like some of the Brunner stories I had already read 25 starsTest to Destruction by Keith Laumer 31 pagesEarth is in a bad shape with a robotic president at the front Among the humans a man named Mallory fights for the free elections that will possible allow him to rule However somewhere in space an alien is nearing earth in his Ree Dreadnought bend on destruction It is also searching for a mind to probe so that it can learn about the planet This shortstory is uite chaotic shifting between the stories in chapters of varying sizes I found certain things interesting like the state of our earth but not much is explained as the story rushes ahead towards its point at the end With a little less focus on the ending and a bit focus on building the setting of the story this could have been a very nice shortstory 2 starsCarcinoma Angels by Norman Spinrad 15 pagesThis is the story of Harrison Wintergreen a boy who became a man a filthy rich man who then became a man who put his mark on the world but whom the world turned its back on This story is very different from all the others and there is nothing in here that would constitute either science fiction nor could it ever be classified as being dangerous Maybe because cancer is much common today than it was back then and something that we can treat Anyways the ending is tragic enough to make the story worth reading but it will always remain a mystery why it is part of such an anthology 2 starsAuto Da Fe by Roger Zelazny 10 pagesEver been to a proper bullfight? Well imagine how they would make these in the future with cars instead of bulls It felt a little weird but thinking about how they are currently working on giving cars memory and AI it might not be all that crazy afterall I especially liked how the author in his afterword tried to make this story much than it actually is 2 starsAye and Gomorrah by Samuel R Delany 14 pagesThis story brings you a weird world of spacers and frelks people who have allowed themselves to be changed physically to be able to live in space and the aliens? who love and worship them and who are willing to pay a lot to have sex with them Yes this is that kind of science fiction story the different and weird kind in case you are wondering what that meant I've only ever read one other Samuel R Delany story and I've never been able to finish it although I have really wanted to His voice is certainly special and although I don't proclaim to understand why he wrote this exact story I do know that I will have to go back to it at least once 3 starsFinal thoughtsSo was this anthology as dangerous as they say? The answer is and you might have guessed this from my short reviews no There are a few dangerous and interesting stories like the ones by Theodore Sturgeon and Henry Slesar I actually went back and raised his score after reading the rest of the stories but far too many of these does not have what it takes to be in such an anthology and honestly it felt like they were here to sell a book not to provoke and show us some dangerous visions of the future So yes my final thoughts on this anthology are those of disappointment
