    Chinese Drama Review: Reset

    We're STILL thinking about the incredible #scifi #CDrama #Reset. Come see if The Fangirls can tempt you into watching it....or REwatching it!

    Let’s talk about the Chinese drama Reset, which grabbed our minds and our eyeballs and would NOT let go! This tightly woven story deserves all the attention. I mean, we talked about it in a podcast, but that isn’t enough; we have thoughts! So why did we like it so much? (more…)

    Spiral Empire - Backstory/Prologue

    I wrote a prologue/backstory for my original sci fi ideas a while ago, but it ended up being a little pretentious, and got exactly Zero views (not that I’m blaming anyone).  So here is an updated version that, I hope, will be easier to understand.  Thanks to my friends at Zelda Universe for letting me bounce ideas off them.  (Yes, we talk about more than just Zelda at ZU)

     --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Sometime in the not so-distant future, with Earth ravaged by climate change (like the entire Amazon rainforest burning down), and a newly discovered earthlike planet in the Alpha Centauri system, humanity decides "screw it" and heads to "New Earth" instead of trying to fix the one we already have (although the latter would be much easier). I based this idea off the RL 1960s Space Race. Humans have put a lot of time, effort and money into something really complex before, and an incredible achievement, only to do nothing substantial with it. Like, yes, we went to the Moon, but as soon as the Americans said to the Russians "nah nah nah nah nah nah! Weeeee got there fiiiiirst!" they completely lost interest in it. So here we are, 50 years later, with no moon bases, no crewed space missions beyond Earth orbit, and conspiracy nutcases convinced we never went there at all, all because we did something wonderful, followed by pretty much completely ignoring it (in other words, something really stupid). So, when a new, Earthlike planet is discovered, is it any wonder that it starts off a new Space Race, with nations completing get there first, and leave the old, "used" Earth in the dust? One country with a less-than-stellar human rights record develops human hibernation tech, originally designed to literally warehouse prisoners, and with that technological hurdle overcome, resources are poured into building giant colony ships, designed to let a medium-sized city's worth of colonists sleep their way to a new world, ignoring the ecologically-collapsing world they're leaving behind. To crew these ships, people are specifically chosen whose neurotype allows them to socialise with just a small group of people, for years on end, without getting bored or going crazy. For once, Autistic people are deemed "useful" and "wanted" for something. (for the record, I'm autistic myself. Believe me, I know what I'm talking about when I say most neurotypicals have difficulty seeing anything positive about my neurotype, but I digress) The fleet of colony ships reaches the location of "Planet Nine" on the outskirts of the Solar System, hoping to use its gravity as a slingshot to speed them on their journey (based on actual maneuvers NASA's uncrewed deep space probes use to reach the outer planets). However, it turns out "Planet 9" isn't a planet at all. It's an unstable wormhole. It sucks in the whole fleet and the ships that weren't destroyed by the singularity are spat out in different parts of the galaxy, and different points in galactic history. Black holes and wormholes are different states of the same cosmic phenomenon, at least in my story. Hey, I got to have some way of going from Point A to Point B, and at least wormholes are theoretically possible according to our current understanding of RL physics, unlike something like warp drive/hyperspace. I'm trying to follow RL physics as closely as possible in my story. Therefore, there's no aforementioned "magic" FTL travel, no transporters/replicators/holodecks or other silly things like that, no unexplained shields/forcefields/tractor beams and no "magic" artificial gravity. Any artificial "gravity" there is is caused by centrifugal force -- literally spinning part or all of a spaceship or station. Otherwise, people float around in space just like in real life. My novel takes place about 500 years later (from the point of view of the primary human offshoot -- the Chie) In the novel's present time, humans are divided into three distinct "space nations": The hyper-capitalist Confederacy of Man, who believe it's their "manifest destiny" to reunite humanity, the Autistic-majority Spiral Empire, who now use the name "Chie" instead of human to describe themselves, distancing themselves from the mistakes old Earth, and the cyborg Machina, who live in a young solar system with no planets, and decided to become partially robotic to conserve their limited resources (and because it's fun). I'll describe them each in detail in a future post. Two sapient alien races, the apex predator, mostly solitary Dragons from the "lonely" planet Erebus, and the mysterious and technologically-superior, radially-symmetrical Tripods, both of whom are allies of the Spiral Empire, round out my universe. All exist in an uneasy peace, their civilisations connected by transversible, naturally-occurring wormholes. That is, until a Spiral colony world is hit by a biological weapon designed to rewire the brains of Chie who aren't outright killed by it. Meanwhile, a young university student on the Confederacy's capital planet, Roosevelt, has her "yer a wizard Harry" moment, when it turns out she's actually Chie, and she accidently discovers something about that bio-weapon.

    A Startling Revelation

    Prompt: Waking up elsewhere Something tickles my toes. As I slowly become aware of my senses, I realise that inhaling feels wrong. Or maybe it’s the air. Or both… I almost doze off again, but then something touches my toes again. It’s wet. I’m instantly awake, throwing off covers that aren’t there, knowing for certain that the culprit is that persistent leak in the ceiling. But as I open my…

    Book review: “Shards of Honour” by Lois McMaster Bujold

    Cordelia has 3 novels in the Vorkosigan series all to herself, and this is the still-amazing middle-ranked book. This is Cordelia ramping up. This is Cordelia romancing us just as much as she romances Aral.

    The book is divided neatly in half. The first part is a long walk through a truly alien landscape, with Cordelia (a scientist-officer of the ultra-progressive Beta Colony) and Aral Vorkosigan (disgraced military genius with an unerring sense of personal honor), culminating in a counter-coup and some of the deepest longing I’ve ever seen in literature. Like, this feels like a Regency novel right at its climax.

    And the second part is consistent terror and military maneuvering, with the continued longing sprinkled on top. It’s good on the first reading, but on the SECOND reading, when you know what Aral is doing, it’s brilliant.

    And that ending has, again, the rampant romantic climax of Regency. You, as a reader, are rabid to find out what happens next. And, unlike Regency novels, there actually IS a next book to tell you what happens! And it is SO MUCH BETTER, TEN STARS.
