Vernor Vinge has won five Hugo Awards, including one for each of his last three novels, A Fire Upon the Deep (1992), A Deepness in the Sky (1999), and Rainbow's End (2006). Known for his rigorous hard-science approach to his science fiction, he became an iconic figure among cybernetic scientists with the publication in 1981 of his novella "True Names," which is considered a seminal, visionary work of Internet fiction.

He looked around dazedly the terracing. It had been a simple matter to fill the open end with dirt-packed bags and to construct a roof of timber covered with three or four feet of dirt. The occupants of the bunker could survive all but a direct hit from a six-inch shell. Since the enemy was supposed to be without six-inch guns, the bunker should be safe unless it was overrun

Tatja Grimm's World is a 1987 science fiction novel by American author Vernor Vinge. Eighteen years after the publication of Grimm's World, Jim Baen of Baen Books offered to reprint the novel. Vinge revised the original text of Grimm's World and added a new beginning. The plotline now begins with "The Barbarian Princess", a novelette originally published in 1986 in the magazine Analog Science Fiction and Fact. The book covers three episodes in the life of Tatja Grimm.

Tatja Grimm's World book. Vernor Vinge is great! But don't bother with this book, which is actually a collection of three stories in which a major character is a super-genius girl named Tatja Grimm, stuck on a backward-ass, low-metal planet on the verge of a renaissance (or maybe just a naissance). Read A Deepness in the Sky instead.

Leaving her aborigine tribe to find intelligent beings, Tatja Grimm travels to Ocean, a medieval mecca of intelligence and technological innovation, but a disillusioned Tatja soon realizes that to find truly superior intelligence she must turn to the stars
  • This review contains some very mild, very broad spoilers, so be forewarned.

    This book starts off strong, but about halfway through takes an unexpected turn and kind of loses focus. The basic premise - a girl who is so much more intelligent than everyone else around her that she makes it her lifelong quest to find an intellectual equal - is a good one, but Vinge, for whom intellectual honesty is paramount, runs into the issue of "you can't write a convincing character who is smarter than the author," so he just... stops trying. We have two quite entertaining arcs where Tatja outwits first a city, then an empire, but after that her goals are much more vague, and far less interesting. In addition, there are some very odd choices made by the author, especially at the very end, where it seems that he's trying to make a statement about human nature, but fails to get his point across.

    I'm a huge fan of Vernor Vinge - A Deepness in the Sky is probably my favorite science fiction novel of all time, and I enjoyed not only A Fire Upon the Deep but also Children of the Sky, which many found disappointing (to which I say that's more about missed expectations than a true lack of quality). Reading these earlier novels you can really see him starting to explore the themes that continue through his career, but you can also tell that he hasn't yet nailed down all of the aspects of good storytelling. Still, I'm glad I read it.

  • Tatja is a barbarian girl from the interior of a massive continent. Her world is poor in metals and civilization is mostly restricted to the island fringes. The mainland is mostly for barbarians.

    Tatja is also much brighter than everyone else she encounters. Desperate to find people who are not "stupid", she wanders to the coast impressing everyone she meets with both her intelligence and her ruthlessness. Upon arriving at the coast, she is at first delighted to find a civilization roughly analogous to the Renaissance but is soon disappointed that everything seems to be the result of centuries of slow progress. She expected to find geniuses and instead had to settle for normal people.

    Even so, she has a master plan. She believes that there is life "out there" in space and there she might find people with who she is comfortable. Putting her plan into action though will require some groundwork, like taking over the most powerful kingdom on the world.

    It turns out that Tatja is right and that is frightening because the outsiders are quite sinister and have their own motives.

    This story reads well most of the time but there are occasional lapses when it is not always clear what is happening. Even so, it was a fun book to read. It is one of Vinge's earlier works and his later ones are better but, even so, this one is still worthwhile.

  • Neither the characters nor the setting intrigued me. Now, Vinge is one of my favorite authors, and I usually love hist stuff But every one misses occasionally, and this is Vinge's turn.

    The main character just never grabbed my interest, and I just never cared what happened to her, or to the other characters.

    If you want to understand why Vinge is so highly regarded, read True Names (and understand that it was written before internet usage was common, and when it was all text-based, NO graphics. ), or read what I think is his best work, A Fire Upon The Deep, which has more new ideas in one book than most writers manage in a career.

    Skip Tatja Grimm, and read the good ones.

  • This early set of works from Vinge, are at times quite interesting; but, the ending fails to truly satisfy the buildup.

    The 2nd and 3rd stories were published as short stories in 1968 and 1969, with the "prequel" being published in 1986, thus giving this "Trilogy" enough bulk to allow it to be published as a three part novel TATJA GRIMM'S WORLD. While Tatja Grimm is one of the main characters in each of the short stories, she is actually not the hero or heroine in any of them - indeed, she actually plays the "bad guy" more often than not in the 2nd & 3rd stories... only in the first story is she made out to be a "good guy".

    One peeve worth mentioning... the art on the cover, while good, does not depict any actual scene from within the book... yes, there are human inhabited "termite mounds" described in detail in one of the stories in the book - but the termite mounds are obviously land based (who ever heard of "sea termites"!)
