9780981848754: InterstellarNet: New Order (Volume 2)

Good fences, said the poet, make good neighbors -- and interstellar distances made very good fences. Or so we thought....

Earth and its interstellar neighbors have been in radio contact for a century and a half. A vigorous commerce in intellectual property has accelerated technical progress for all the species involved. Ideas, riding on radio waves, routinely cross interstellar space -- almost like neighbors chatting over the interstellar back fence. But there is a way over, or under, or around, almost any fence. Sooner or later, when we least expect it, the neighbors, friendly or otherwise, are going to pay a call....

InterstellarNet: New Order chronicles the startling events of Second Contact, upfront and personal, as humanity discovers that meeting aliens face to face is very different -- and a lot more dangerous -- than sending and receiving messages.

"Edward Lerner takes us from a first SETI detection to full scale interstellar net economics, with thrills along the way. No one had thought through what a working interstellar net would be like. Lerner has the professional heft to make sense of it, tell a story, and make us care. Good stuff, told in clear, quick prose. A groundbreaking job!"
-- Gregory Benford, author of Timescape (on InterstellarNet" Origins)

About the Author:

EDWARD M. LERNER worked in high tech for thirty years, as everything from engineer to senior vice president, for much of that time writing science fiction as a hobby. Since 2004 he has written full-time, and his books run the gamut from technothrillers, like Energized, to traditional SF, like the InterstellarNet series, to, with Larry Niven, the grand space epic Fleet of Worlds series of Ringworld companion novels. Ed’s short fiction has appeared in anthologies, collections, and many of the usual SF magazines. He also writes the occasional nonfiction technology article. Lerner lives in Virginia with his wife, Ruth. His website is http://www.edwardmlerner.com.

Review:

"... A twisted plot complete with conspiracies, alien psychology, antimatter physics neep, AI spies, and plenty of shooting action at the end."
-- Internet Review of Science Fiction

"Edward M. Lerner's InterstellarNet is one of the most original andwell-thought-out visions of an interstellar civilization I've everseen."
-- Stanley Schmidt, Author of Argonaut (on the InterstellarNet series)
