The highly competent Stirling is now extrapolating moviemaker James Cameron's Terminator concepts into a full-blown alternate future. In the second installment of the project, Sarah Connor is considered mad, bad, and dangerous to know by those who don't know the menace of Skynet, the computer-mind that rules the future and dispatches Terminators and Infiltrators to protect itself from Sarah's son, John Connor, who is growing older and more capable as well as falling in love. The Connors and Dieter von Rossbach, who, curiously enough, resembles a certain movie star from Austria, are quite capable of holding the fort until the advent of two Infiltrators, both female in appearance. The little band of resistance fighters now has to recruit new allies and then carry the fight to the enemy. They do, though at high cost, on the way offering a feast of technical ingenuity, wry wit, offbeat characterization, and furious, convincing action. A felicitous wedding of a visually oriented writer to soundly conceived sf-movie concepts.
