Summary The Singularity Trap

Download ´ eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF ¿ Dennis E. Taylor The Singularity Trap Summary ☆ 108 Sion to convert the solar system and the human race into a war machine meant to fight in an interstellar battle that has raged for millions of yearsTo save his family and the human race Ivan will need to play a deadly game of brinkmanship with the military all the while hiding his plans from both his crewmates and the alien computer residing in his brain. Forgive my absence of late I m doing my masters and unfortunately this means that my reading time now consists of reading research reports and text books instead of fiction And there is another 25 years of this Thankfully with travelling to and from work and lots of cleaning up to do with two young kids there is plenty of time for audio booksThis was the first Dennis E Taylor book I have encountered It was a lot of fun I will pretty much listen to anything that Ray Porter narrates so I was excited to see he had narrated another sci fi and I was not disappointedDown on his luck Ivan scores a job on a mining ship searching for metals that will make them all rich so he is able to provide for his family While on an asteroid Ivan touches something and all hell breaks loose The substance clings to his suit and makes its way into it It starts to change him All of a sudden Ivan is not uite Ivan any And all of a sudden he has to save the human raceThis was a really fun ride I thought it might be a bit slow at first despite Ray s narration but man it uickly got into it and I found I couldn t stop listeningIt had a really great message embedded between all the drama action and adventure What do we have to do as a species to get our act together I really enjoy this kind of sci fi A lot of fun but also makes you think and opens up your mindI loved the characters loved the action and I am looking forward to giving Dennis E Taylor books a goI do wish there was a little bit romance There was a little bit but it didn t uite hit the spot for me even though I realise that it wasn t what the book was about and I imagine some would argue that it was just the right amount as to not detract from the story But I enjoy a bit romance in a bookWould I recommend The Singularity TrapAbsolutely It was a really great ride with twists and turns It was intelligent and a lot of darn fun And if I ever write a sci fi adventure I hope that I can get Ray Porter to narrate it BrilliantI purchased The Singularity Trap at my own expense through audiblecom

Taylor The Singularity Trap Summary ☆ 108 After scrimping and saving for two years Ivan Pritchard lands a berth with the mining ship Mad Astra His one share buys him six months of searching the asteroid belt for that elusive cache of metals that could make the entire crew wealthy and allow Ivan to pull his family out of the depths of povertyWhile investigating a promising asteroid Ivan triggers. Where the Bobbiverse novels relied on an eual mix of pop culture nerdiness and solid SF idea exploration in the realm of a self replicating AI who is still effectively human The Singularity Trap jumps on some of the same solid SF ideas and plotting but does it without most of the humorI can only assume this might piss off a few fans of the other books but not me It just proves that Taylor has the grit to back up his SF idea exploration with nothing than good characterizations big tech and even better FermiGame Theory musingsThe novel begins with a mining ship finding something strange which can be surmised from the cover but than that this is a novel of euations Not math we have to do ourselves of course but euations such as survival euations costbenefit euations moral euations or even engagement euations What happens when a crewmate is being transformed full body horror included and we have to balance it against nearly unlimited wealth How about the risk of contagion versus unlimited tech At what point does a person stop being a person When does a troublesome species like humanity become too much trouble to bother with I won t spoil the hell out of this novel but one thing is certain it does a great job at laying out all the uestions and deriving a ton of conflict out of them all The mirroring is also uite good At what point does a transformed species still remain its parent species At what point does an AI stop being the consciousness of the alien and be the same kind of AI that it thinks its fighting Between nanites and AI s on the BIG playing field I can t tell the difference except in how they play their Game TheorySo let s hear it for the Prisoner s Dilemma This might be a standalone novel or a series It s primed for a series And I hope so I m enjoying this as much as the Bobbiverse

The fast improving SF author revisits many of the themes of his Bobiverse series in this entertaining hardish SF novel that s a clear leveling up of characterization and story telling with less sarcastic humor and popculture referencesThe asteroid mining ship the Mad Astra is on a hard luck streak when it finds the strike of a lifetime However that break comes with a sting when one of crew members IT guy Ivan Pritchard encounters a bizarre substance that attaches itself to the arm of his spacesuit After cutting him free of the arm of his space suit and returning him to the Mad Astra Ivan wakes the next day to find his arm turned into living metal and the conversion is not stopping there What happens next threatens humanity and the whole solar system in a tense standoff with the alien intelligence behind Ivan s transformation and Earth forcesThe author s interest in the Fermi Paradox is on show with a solution postulated here that s been much discussed already in the SF field It s an interesting one from the physics tech and engineering perspective of hard SF and I always enjoy books that postulate interstellar civilization without completely ignoring relativistic limits Where this deviates from what I d describe as hard SF is the nano machine stuff Nanotechnology as self replicating nano machines is increasingly looking like science fiction s lazy magic substitute and I think as a component of hard SF it needs to get ditchedAnd speaking of laziness one of the components of this book is the Sino Soviet Empire That one s straight out of the 1980s or even the Red Panic of years before Particularly as a Russian led entity as it appears here The idea of an SSE as a political and military entity is almost less believable than the alien nanotechnology It also puts on full display the scitech geek contempt of the soft political and sociological sciences that you see in a lot of other hard SF stuff I m strongly reminded of the sociopath US President in Seveneves as an example of how tone deaf this point of view is There s also a deep cynicism around human nature Humanists these writers are notAll that being said this delivers on the central premise of a lot of the hard SF field The scientists and geeks get to save the day or at least try to despite human nature and the military mind and from a level of threat based around scientific concepts that only the scientists are really euipped to understand Despite what I ve written above there is nuance in the portrayal of non scientists here in the evolution of the character of Admiral Moore and some of the other military officers and this is done well but it s still clear who the heroes are
