Hawksbill Station was Robert Silverberg’s most Kilgore Troutian conceptKilgore Trout was of course the recurring fictitious science fiction writer from Kurt Vonnegut’s canon based loosely upon fellow writer Theodore Sturgeon According to Vonnegut Trout would come up with wild ideas one after another in a prolific if not profitable careerSilverberg also a prolific but happily profitable writer describes in Hawksbill Station first published in 1967 a situation where political prisoners are sent back in time over a BILLION years to serve out their life sentences That’s right billion with a B the late Cambrian period to be exact where there is no dirt just rock and water trilobites to eat and the moon is a fresh young pink in color and without the pockmarked surface of adolescence A new prisoner is greeted by his new mates with the salutation “Hope you like seafood”This is also one of his most political works The collection of prisoners who populate the station named for mathematician Hawksbill who came up with the time travel concept are all revolutionaries; an odd assortment of Marxists socialists anarchists terrorists Oakland Raider fans and other undesirable near do wells Their prehistoric community is one of radical nonconformity amidst the growing and inevitable madness from considering their time wall of exileI gave this one 3 stars I liked it but it was incomplete oddly scorched with error Silverberg has usually been fastidious with scientific detail – though I suppose some wider range of latitude can be afforded a time travel story But I will say that this one flawed though it is will be one of my cult favorites; Hawksbill Station has a roguish charm that an old political science major finds endearing

This was a really interesting novella and the first thing I have read by Mr Silverberg I really enjoyed the concept of the story A penal colony set in the past is such an interesting idea I like how Silverberg explored the psychological effects of the isolation as well as the flashbacks to Barrett’s life before he was sent to Hawksbill Station
