Hey. I’m writing a story right now, and I have questions about the terminology used in dealing with Androids and AI type stuff.
At the moment, I have plans to continue to add to what little I have and I think it could be a good shot for a novel, or possibly a string of comic books, but I also think the first 11 pages that I have written could stand alone as a decent sci-fi short story that I could submit to some magazines.
The problem here is that I am woefully ignorant and unaware of what exactly goes on in modern day computers, much less futuristic humanistic androids. I’m fairly certain that when describing the inner-workings of a complex sentient machine, one can only get so far with vague terms like ‘processors’, ‘circuits’, ‘motors’. etc. etc. Can anyone direct me to a decent database or manual for which to kind of get a feel for the language and a somewhat decent understanding of general computer systems? Doesn’t have to be anything too comprehensive, but if that’s what you’d recommend I’m all about it. I’m just looking to not come across like a complete floundering ass just throwing around science sounding words.
Finally caught up and I have to say, this is by far the best season since the first.
I think you would enjoy Paul Cooley, Eric Luke, Mike Bennett and Patrick Mclean.
I also particularly enjoyed Mike Coggins’ thrillers and Tracy Hickman’s The Immortals.
If you like Nathan Lowell, give a try to Abigail Hilton’s Guild of the Cowry Catchers: Nathan has a big part in it. Don’t let the furries fool you.
I’ve been a fan of J.A. Areces’ The Salen Concord series. Start with Interview for a Wizard.
I was pulling for Don Pine winning with his last flash of fourth quarter magic. Thought it would be an interesting turn of events, actually, given how hard the book was pulling one way.
Ok I have read/heard everything from Scott, I have also listened to a number of other authors offerings via podiobooks dot com.
Some of the other authors I have listened to are:
Does anyone have any suggestions of other good audio books on podiobooks website?
He’s human alright, but he’s a dwarf/little person, whatever you want to refer to him as. His teeth are still a mystery to me too.
I’m sure this was covered in one of the earlier books. I don’t have any of the e-books to search, though. His voice and name suggest human but his sometimes reference to how tiny he is make me wonder if he’s supposed to be one of the smaller species. And I don’t know what to make of the red teeth? Why does he have those again?
So…the starting Fullback/back-up QB gets it over the starting QB/back-up Fullback…Cause I’m guessing to confuse the Jupiter Jacks the Starting QB for the Galaxy Bowl is Listed in the program as Barnes and the starting Fullback is listed as Becca…I’m just saying…@ScottSigler
@Combat_Cook: If only the world of pro sports worked that way. A fullback will never, ever, ever win a Galaxy/Super Bowl MVP. Not gonna happen.
