Why is it all th BEST stuff I find from authors who only publish a couple books? ( )

Based on the high Goodreads rating I was expecting more from this book. it is a good "feel good" book but don't expect any action or suspense. ( )

A collection of vignettes featuring the same basic cast of characters. These stories are told, (generally in the form of entertainments for the youngsters of the colony), by the matriarch and chief biologist of a colony established on the not always friendly world of Mirabile. So, what we have here are tales such as 'The Return of the Kangaroo Rex', 'The Loch Moose Monster', and 'Frankenswine'. All fairly entertaining and told in a humorous but occasionally too-glib manner.

Mirabile is a light & easy read where the antagonist is the environment. In a way, Mirabile comes across as a sort of "Deathworld Lite", with the exception that much of the flora and fauna is, if not outright friendly, (some is), at least ambivalent toward the colonists, as opposed to constantly trying to kill them, the way Harrison's Pyrrus was imagined.

This was my first encounter with Janet Kagan's work. I found "Mirabile" to be pure fun in the way a lot of science fiction isn't. The book is a compilation of several linked stories, and this form echoes the science quirk in the book itself: the idea of linking different species together, so that a plant can give birth to an animal and so on.

The main character is a woman of a certain age, which is unusual in fiction. There are no big villains to overcome, just problems to solve and puzzles to work out. It's all in a day's work for our heroine. ( )
