Another addition to The Book of Deacon series.
This is set after Jade so hopefully, maybe, we may find some answers within when i get around to reading it.
Currently only available to Joseph’s Patreon supporters.
A short story that is a conversation between a scientist and an AI — with an interesting twist in the tail.
For those who have read Joseph’s Big Sigma series, you’ll know how good he is writing AI’s into his books.
I already read the first 4 books and they were really, really good. Now i’ve collected all 6 i get to read through them all again.
I only recently discovered Jason’s writing and i have to say that i’m really enjoying it.
Obsidian Worlds is a whole book full of short stories about random sci-fi things which i chose to read as inbetweenies between chapters of How Emotions Are Made. It worked out really well giving nice little breaks to allow Lisa’s cutting edge science to percolate through my synapses, although, unfortunately, there aren’t enough shorts in this collection to cover all the chapters in Lisa’s book. Ho hum, i’ll just have to find some other shorts to read.
So yeah, Jason has a Phd in philosophy and i think that kinda adds a certain flavour to Jason’s sci-fi, and i do like philosophers who chose to write stories instead of academic papers — much more fun for all of us.
A freebie over at the “Skulk members area” and a nice little taster of Gaie’s writing.
A really good twist on the sorcerer’s apprentice kind of theme, where instead of an apprentice we find that Gubbins is a slave.
“What’s a ‘Munculus?” you ask.
“Read it and find out,” i answer.
