Inhaltsangabe: A dramatic insight into the future of Man in the 30th century and beyond where life is divided into three; fleshers - true homo-sapines; Gleisner robots - human minds within machines; and polises - supercomputers teeming with intellgent software containing copies of human personalities.
Review: In the 30th century, few humans remain on Earth. Most have downloaded themselves into robot bodies or solar-system-spanning virtual realities, escaping death--or so they believe, until the collision of nearby neutron stars threatens life in every form.
Diaspora, written by Hugo Award and John W. Campbell Memorial Award winner Greg Egan, transcends millennia and universes in the tradition of Poul Anderson's Tau Zero, Bruce Sterling's Schismatrix Plus, Camille Flammarion's Omega, and Olaf Stapledon's Last and First Men. Diaspora is packed with mind-bending ideas extrapolated from cutting-edge cosmology, physics, and consciousness theory to create an astonishing hard-SF novel inhabited by very strange yet always believable characters. Diaspora is why people read SF. --Cynthia Ward

Cover Art: Uncredited (illustrator). 1998 Edition. © 1997: A stand-alone novel by Greg Egan:- Synopsis: It is the end of the thirtieth century. While 'fleshers', what is left of homo sapiens, remain in the muck and jungle of earth, much of human kind has achieved apparent immortality - as 'Gleisner robots': embodying human minds within machines, and as 'polises': supercomputers teeming with intelligent software containing the direct copies of billions of human personalities. A random mutation of the Konishi polis base mind seed creates an orphan, Yatima. When an astrophysical disaster threatens to destroy earth, Yatima sets out to discover a home where random acts of God will never threaten their existence again:- Review(s): "Never one short of startling ideas, Egan's latest, greatest novel presents us with hard SF miracles. 'Diaspora' is both concisely written future history and exhilarating genre thriller. Remember to keep your mouth closed when reading this or your jaw might drop clean off" - Starburst:- (original cost £6.99). Buchnummer des Verkäufers 11.001.00108
