Editorial Reviews

Review

“It’s good to consider the A.I. possibilities ahead. Peter Cawdron’s Reentry is a marvelous read but also an intriguing scenario for what might go on within the superintelligences.” — Vernor Vinge, Hugo Award–winning author of A Fire Upon the Deep and A Deepness in the Sky  
 
“In Reentry, Peter Cawdron combines the best traits of high-end speculative fiction—vivid characters, big ideas, action, empathy . . . oh, and more big ideas.” — David Brin, Hugo and Nebula Award–winning author of the Uplift saga  
 
“Gripping, cerebral . . . with scientific detail that will please fans of hard science fiction, Cawdron raises interesting questions about the nature of consciousness. The story sets itself apart from tales that revel in dystopia by imagining what comes after, as humans and A.I.s learn to collaborate.” — Publishers Weekly

Full content visible, double tap to read brief content.

Peter is an Australian science fiction writer, specialising in making hard science fiction easy to understand and thoroughly enjoyable.

His FIRST CONTACT series is topical rather than character-based, meaning each book stands alone. These novels can be read in any order, but they all focus on the same topic of First Contact with extraterrestrial lifeforms. In this regard, the series is akin to BLACK MIRROR or THE TWILIGHT ZONE.

Hard science fiction is a misnomer as far as categories of literature go, as it sounds harsh and difficult to understand, but that is far from reality. Hard science fiction is simply plausible science fiction, fiction that is written in such a way as it conforms to the known laws of science, and that makes it more interesting, as there's no magic wand the protagonist can wave to get out of trouble. Peter's forays into hard science fiction could best be described as informative science fiction or enjoyable science fiction.

Peter is a fan of such classic science fiction writers as Philip K. Dick, Arthur C. Clarke and Michael Crichton and their influence on his style and story lines is readily apparent. You can follow Peter on Facebook or Twitter or find him posting some interesting tibit on his blog http://thinkingscifi.wordpress.com/
