Poul Anderson and Gordon R. Dickson's Hoka! (1983) is the third and final Hoka book. The quality is somewhat mixed. But I did like Phil Foglio's cover and his street scene on page 156 showing the Childe Cycles Shop and the 3 Hearts and 3 Lions Tavern

Poul Anderson and Gordon R. It is not quite as lively as the first in the series, Earthman's Burden (1957); but it is a touch better than Star Prince Charlie (1975). But I did like Phil Foglio's cover and his street scene on page 156 showing the Childe Cycles Shop and the 3 Hearts and 3 Lions Tavern. None of them had quite the comic dazzle for me of Edd Cartier's original illustrations in Earthman's Burden. Perhaps readers with more modern tastes than my own will find the illustrations more to their liking.

This book is a compilation of some of the stories about these creatures written by Poul Anderson and Gordon R. Dickson. In the prologue to the collected tales we learn that Toka, which means "Earth", has two intelligent species who have evolved into the Hokas and the What is a Hoka? It is a furry creature living on an earthlike planet called Toka on the edge of the known universe. They are a race unlike any other yet discovered, for although they resemble bears they can change their appearance.

  • took me awhile to "get" this book. There was one story about this male that married this female, except I didn't get how they were together until you realized they are two separate species, one a bear alien and the woman is a hot kind of blonde trophy housewife type.. and no I haven't finished the book, just. cant. go through it. It is the kind of book you might enjoy in a desert island like Gilligan's, with nothing to do and not civilization to connect to and it would make sense or take on appeal. lol.

  • If you can imagine furry teddy bears that can think but also take everything as gospel then you should like this book. The scenarios are based on old Earth fairy tales and fantasy stories the the inhabitants take WAY over the top.

  • agreat book to read its funny at times great read

  • good

  • Poul Anderson and Gordon R. Dickson's _Hoka!_ (1983) is the third and final Hoka book. It is not quite as lively as the first in the series, _Earthman's Burden_ (1957); but it is a touch better than _Star Prince Charlie_ (1975). It consists of four novelettes: "Joy in Mudville" (_Fantasy and Science Fiction_, 1955), "Undiplomatic Immunity" (_F&SF_, 1957), "Full Pack (Hokas Wild)" (_F&SF_, 1957) and "The Napoleon Crime" (_Amazing_, 1983). There is also an uncalled for and heavy-handed spoof of left-wing criticism by Sandra Miesel written especially for the book. A more entertaining literary satire is in the second story.

    All of the stories are passable fun. I especially liked "Joy in Mudville," in which the Hokas are determined to reinact Casey at the Bat against the rival octopoid team from Saren, and "Full Pack," in which the Hokas (along with some other aliens) reinact _The Jungle Book_. But some of the stories -- particularly "Full Pack" and "The Napoleon Crime"-- drag on a bit too long. And the punch line spoken by Alex Jones in the last tale was used by a villain in _Earthman's Burden_, which weakens the effect a bit.

    There are a generous number of interior illustrations by a variety of artists. The quality is somewhat mixed. But I did like Phil Foglio's cover and his street scene on page 156 showing the Childe Cycles Shop and the 3 Hearts and 3 Lions Tavern. None of them had quite the comic dazzle for me of Edd Cartier's original illustrations in _Earthman's Burden_. Perhaps readers with more modern tastes than my own will find the illustrations more to their liking.

    All in all, good entertainment. And you can always pass over Sandra Miesel's tiresome spoof.

  • Hoka is a silly book about an alien race, the Hoka. Their unique characteristics are that they resemble our Earth teddy bears, and they have an absolutely wild and hypnotic imagination. Upon discovery by Earthlings, the Hokas are unwittingly exposed to and greatly influenced by human culture. This often leads to humerous results.

    I found myself initially turned off by the unsophisticated and simple short story format. I was expecting more development. These stories just kinda dive right in. But, the book grew on me and I got a few good chuckles from it. For big science fiction fans, it probably won't satisfy your craving for a good sci-fi book. But, for anyone wanting to kill some time reading something a little off the wall, you won't be dissapointed. Probably a good book for kids. It's a quick read, too.

  • If you like teddy bears and science fiction you will love "Hoka". Hoka is a planet discovered by Earth explorers whose inhabtants look exactly like teddy bears. Anderson and Dickson use this premise to expound on human legends and tall tales with hilarious results. A must read.

  • Light as air fluff contains vignettes about an alien world of sentient teddy bears who enjoy American popular culture. Not as entertaining as it sounds, and even the opportunity for parable style social criticism is wasted.
