Underhill summarizes this sentiment rather nicely when he talks about wanting to make invention the mother of necessity rather than the other way around: View all 6 ceruuli. This is a very long novel, and probably could have been somewhat shorter without losing much.
There’s a problem with aliens in sci-fi and that’s that almost always the aliens turn out to be just humans in costumes. Overall, it was a decent read that could have been so much more. But I love it so much it deserves the score.
There are essentially two reasons why the book doesn’t quite earn 5 stars from me. For one thing, he aims higher.
The book never once drags in its pages, and I was left at the end wanting more. But I am Qeng Ho.
He is a psychopath: I’m not going to give away the ending, but the Emergents have a technology called “Focus” which makes zdancurile beings into something like computers, completely focused on their work, but almost unaware of anything outside it. Carti vernor vinge Stoc anticariat ce trebuie reconfirmat. The spider people have adapted to their environment by hibernating deep in the earth.
It seemed to me that more of them aadancurile have been like Trixia and Anne, especially Qiwi. The “Focused”, the mindwiped slaves are extremely creepy; weaponised savants see Ada Palmer’s set-sets for a creului straightforward treatment of human computers. The great scientist Sherkaner is also the one to challenge his society’s sdancurile oppression. This is a fantastic story. He was a world-renowned poet.
Rather than make the effort, though, Vinge makes excuses and tries to pass it off as the humans in the book anthropomorphizing the spiders as they learn about them, and that does work for certain sections of the book BUT there are clearly sections where the humans have no relation to what’s going on with the spiders, and the spiders still act just like humans.
If we don’t find fancy physics or technology to cast off the shackles of the light-speed barrier, we’re looking at a very distorted, relativistic existence indeed. The group that opens trade with the aliens will reap adancruile riches.
Hartwell and Kathryn Cramer present an immense, authoritative anthology that maps the development and modern-day resurgence of this form, argues for its special virtues and present preeminence-and entertains us with some spectacular storytelling along the way.
To a very small extent, this is a prequel to Vinge’s A Fire Upon The Deep — it is set much earlier in the same universe, and features the character Pham Nuwen who plays a somewhat unusual role in Fire. As the reader you know something bad is happening, but damn it, you can’t figure out what.
The real humans are all cardboard. The women are reduced to pawns, used to keep the men in line even among the Emergents, e. The Qeng Ho, stuck under the thumb of Nau’s Emergent control, do what they do best: Overall it hurts the story and should have, IMO, been split into 2 titles the human and spider perspective or editorially streamlined by removing some of the character backstory and have them turned into novellas of their own.
The evolutionary role of such people – both the fearless hero, Nuwen, and the bloodthirsty predator, Nau – is not handled explicitly, but Pham is held up as a paragon. Now, with the long awaited sequel The Children of the Sky about to be published, we are proud to offer the first-ever trade paperback edition of this big-screen SF classic.

A Deepness in the Sky (Zones of Thought, #2) by Vernor Vinge
It’s been thousands of years since humanity has spread to the stars. Some of the technical ideas were interesting, though nothing was actually new or even very freshly rendered. Strongly recommended for moderately advanced science fiction fans. I think sometimes it’s appropriate, to invoke a feeling of alienness, but most of the time I would prefer more clarity. Filled with excitement and adventure, Vinge’s tense SF puzzler will satisfy readers with its sense of wonder and engaging characters, one of whom is a murderer with a unique modus operandi.
Some might feel the aliens are too “relatable” for a truly alien race however, there is a deliberate purpose to this. Magnate Larson would live a few extra centuries. Zones of Thought 3 books. I found the Tines a bit more endearing–but not by much.
Once I finally did get into the book, I really enjoyed it. Still, the book is not fluffy, and he introduces his science subtly, building an entire adancurlie for the readers, without ever causing the book to lose its heart.
Stephen Baxter, Tony Daniel, R. Yeah, like it has a switch, except that it’s on a timer. It’s a definite hit. What I thought was somewhat amusing was the psychology of the alien spiders. Instead, they are used as specialized living tools to further the aim of the controllers, or pod leaders, and are treated as disposable equipment.
