Jaroslav Kalfar s debut novel Spaceman of Bohemia has been compared to the extremely popular novel The Martian but Kalfar s novel is far superior I understand the comparison both novels are about lone men in space whose solitary Robinson Crusoe style adventures find them stranded on their journeys of exploration While it s enjoyable for some of the plot and scientific detail I thought The Martian mostly came across as repetitive and it s suffused with a particularly foul stench of macho bravado By contrast Spaceman of Bohemia is thoughtful continuously compelling and says something intelligent about the progress of civilizationThe hero is Jakub Proch zka an astrophysicist with a speciality in cosmic dust which makes him the perfect candidate for the Czech Republic s first mission into outer space A comet from another galaxy has streamed through our own solar system leaving a curious cloud between Venus and Earth which has stained our night time sky purple An opportunistic Czech minister sees a chance for his nation to enter the space race and collect samples of this strange material by sending Jakub on his solitary mission on a second hand space shuttle The results are bizarrely thrilling unexpected and turn into a personal journey which prompts Jakub to survey his position in his own nation s tumultuous historyRead my full review of Spaceman of Bohemia by Jaroslav Kalfa on LonesomeReader
