    In the The Sixth Sense , the character Malcolm tries to tell a story Unfortunately, it s a bad story, which Cole immediately picks up on, and comments, You have to add some twists and stuff I tend to think that the essence of a well crafted story is the unexpected A good story has unexpected tragedies, unexpected joys, and unexpected crowning moments of awesome Yet, t

    Vernor Vinge, a scientist who can tell a good yarn, another anomaly among genre writers, the other anomalous authors being China Mi ville and David Brin, and they are all bald Makes me want to shave my head, I bet Patrick Stewart can write amazing books if he wanted to, make it so Pat A few months ago I read A Fire Upon the Deep, Vinge s first Zones of Thought novel, it qui

    A Deepness in the Sky Might have been interesting at half the lengthOriginally posted at Fantasy LiteratureA Fire Upon the Deep was a big success for Vernor Vinge, winning the 1993 Hugo Award Seven years later, he followed up with A Deepness in the Sky, set 20,000 years earlier in the same universe, and this captured the 2000 Hugo Award and John W Campbell Award I came to both bo

    I honestly have no idea how to even rate this Objectively, it s a very solid book Vinge s prose is kind of dry and his habit of throwing a bunch of hints at you before really telling you what s going on is alternately effective and obnoxious.I found the first few hundred pages terribly hard to read, though It s not a pleasant story, and Vinge doesn t pull any punches If you re like me

    4.5 stars First This is one of the best books I have read in a very long time, and, despite the fact that it doesn t quite earn a 5 star rating from meon that later , I would highly recommend the book to anyone who s remotely interested in science fiction It s a testament to the book that I managed to finish it while in the midst of an extraordinarily busy semester Vinge really hits the bala

    I love science fiction stories that incorporate novel concepts, and this one introduces several intriguing concepts First, there is the variable sun that goes through a long on off cycle Second, there are the alien creatures living on a planet in the sun s system that have evolved to live through this cycle They are called spiders because they are short and have multiple limbs Then there are the Q

    An excellent book, that I don t love quite as much as A Fire Upon the Deep but it s still pretty amazing The review to read is Jo Walton s One of the things SF can do is show you characters with different mindsets Anyone can write a character whose dreams have failed Vinge s writing people from whole societies whose dreams have failed over millennia And yet, this is a cheerful optimistic book in which a

    I was imagining a movie version while I was reading this one half of the movie would be animated and would feature adorable spider aliens love those aliens but I don t know what I d do with the other half, and the endless cycle of rape and mind control that happens to a particularly sympathetic character I don t think I d want that in my movie.

    I don t know about you, but I spend an inordinate amount of time meditating upon the far future of humanity I don t just worry about the future of my generation, or the future of the generation after mine, or the future of a couple of generations down the line I m talking one , ten , fifty thousand years into the future Will humanity still exist would we recognize it as humanity even if it does How many times betwe

    Unfortunately this book wasn t meant for me I thoroughly enjoyed the first Zones of Thoughts novel, but this second one was too much of several things for me to care too many characters, too much talking, too many and too long flashbacks.There are terrific ideas like the on off sun and what this means for the evolution of a species, or the conflict of two human fractions with very different ideas of society.Even though i
