''first in the post-holocaust Battle Circle sequence, comprising SOS THE ROPE, Var the Stick (1972; cut 1973) and Neq The Sword (1975), a combat-oriented trilogy. Here and in other novels Anthony resorts to stripped-down protagonists with monosyllabic and/or generic names, like Battle Circle's Sos, Var and Neq, or like Cal, Veg and Aquilon, whose adventures on various planets make up Of Man and Manta, a second trilogy comprising Omnivore (1968), Orn (1971) and Ox (1976),: humanity turns out to be the omnivore. Both these series use action scenarios with thinly drawn backgrounds and linear plots not comfortably capable of sustaining the weight of significance the author requires of them'' (John Clute & Dave Langford/Encyclopedia of SF, 3rd Edition.
