There is no dignity in the living by the rule and no joy, either, and it was a rotten day when the human race arose. That I did not worry on. You be almost one of us. You're the closest to a goblin that a human can approach.

There is no dignity in the living by the rule and no joy, either, and it was a rotten day when the human race arose. My friend," said Maxwell, shaken, "you have not said anything like this to me before. Nor to any other human," said the goblin, "and to all the humans in the world, only to you could I display my feeling. But I, perchance, have run off at the mouth exceedingly. I am honored," Maxwell told him. "We are ancient," said Mr. O'Toole, "more ancient, I must think, than the human mind can wonder.

Simak The Goblin Reservation Inspector Drayton sat, solidly planted behind the desk, and waited. He was a rawboned man with a face that looked as if it might have been hacked, by a dull hatchet, out of a block of gnarled wood. His eyes were points of flint and at times they seemed to glitter, and he was angry and upset. But such a man, Peter Maxwell knew, would never give way to any kind of anger

_I love the idea of a university having a College of Supernatural Phenomenon, as well as, a College of Time travel. That's the sort of place I wish that I had attended- and he locates it right here in Wisconsin. Heck, I could commute....

_There is also so much more that is pure Simak here- drinking moonshine with an educated neanderthal, a domesticated ghost, and a cloned saber-tooth tiger, for instance. Of course there is also the idea of reservations for the Little Folk (fairies, goblins, trolls, banshees, etc.) Then combine it all with commonplace instersteller travel by matter transmitter throughout a vast galactic community of intelligent aliens. All this is just the incidental setting for the main plot, which just happens to be very well crafted mystery story.

_I believe that I have read just about everything that Clifford Simak ever published, and I would have to say that this little novel is probably my all time favorite. I just wish that he would have written a sequel or two.

One of the best compliments I like to give about a book is that it's an easy read. This doesn't imply that it is simple or devoid of ideas, it refers to the easy ability for anyone to pick up the book and enjoy it from beginning to end. Clifford D. Simak has a knack for writing easy reads.

The Goblin Reservation is a little divergence from some of Simak's more traditional science fiction work and it's a charming diversion.

Within this book you'll find cavemen, goblins, trolls, aliens, time travel and more. Today, some authors might feel justified making a five-book series out of the story; there is certainly enough material left unexplored. Simak makes the correct decision in simply telling the story compactly, leaving readers the opportunity to explore the world he presents with their own imagination.

The basic storyline, about a man who returns from an interstellar trip to find out he has already died, is almost secondary to the actual tale, one which explores man's pre-history and the possibility that the "little folk" actually existed throughout the millennia on Earth and that their existence is not what we commonly believed.

The tale is fast-paced, with characters thrown into the mix and then discarded, yet each playing just important enough of a role to avoid being "filler".

One important note about Simak books: he has no heroic characters. In point of fact, he rarely has protagonists. Most of the time his books are peopled by men and women of ordinary human courage who are often embroiled in situations of bewildering proportions. Events capture and drag around his characters, driving their action and forcing them to resolve the conflicts using normal wits and knowledge. It's a refreshing view that makes one realize "heroism" doesn't require special powers or trauma.

This is a friendly book, one which will be enjoyed for its ideas and imagination.
