Über diesen Titel

Inhaltsangabe:

Bluejay Books, 1984. Interior and cover illustrations by Bob Walters. Afterword by Marvin Minsky. Considered a seminal work of the cyberpunk genre. This book first brought Vinge to prominence as a science fiction writer. It also inspired many real-life hackers and computer scientists. First published as part of an anthology, this is the first solo book publication.

About the Author:

Vernor Vinge has won five Hugo Awards, including one for each of his last three novels, A Fire Upon the Deep (1992), A Deepness in the Sky (1999), and Rainbow’s End (2006). Known for his rigorous hard-science approach to his science fiction, he became an iconic figure among cybernetic scientists with the publication in 1981 of his novella "True Names," which is considered a seminal, visionary work of Internet fiction. His many books also include Marooned in Realtime and The Peace War. Born in Waukesha, Wisconsin and raised in Central Michigan, Vinge is the son of geographers. Fascinated by science and particularly computers from an early age, he has a Ph.D. in computer science, and taught mathematics and computer science at San Diego State University for thirty years. He has gained a great deal of attention both here and abroad for his theory of the coming machine intelligence Singularity. Sought widely as a speaker to both business and scientific groups, he lives in San Diego, California.
