BOOK RECOMMENDATION: The Prefect
By admin on Nov 13, 2009 | In Virtuality
I just finished reading "The Prefect", by Alastair Reynolds and recommend it to those who like hard science fiction space operas.
I especially like his references to the extensive use of "Abstraction" which is a form of augmented virtual reality that is depended upon by some habitats inside the Glitter Band. Hyper-Pig, Conjoiner, Aurora and the Clockmaker are also interesting characters in a satisfying plot.
The idea of alpha and beta level human copies is also provocative.
