The Pandora Chronicles
Survival Of The Human Race Depends On Three Peoples Attempts To Create A
Artificial Intelligance, But It Could Destroy Them All
hey were headed toward a planet circling the far
distant Tua Ceti - a ripe Eden world waiting to be plucked for the future of
the human race. But three-fourths of the way through the Solar System, their
ship failed: its propelling engines, three all-powerful OMC (Organic Mental
Core) brains had, quite suddenly and unexplainably, gone mad.
here was only one possible solution for survival - to
create a "conscious" mechanical brain able to guide them to their
destination. But would there be enough time before they plunged into
oblivion - for they were working with limited resources. Under unbearable
pressure . . . and against impossible odds. But if they succeeded, they
would be at the very mercy of the ship . . . trapped in the Void.
The Jesus Incident
Unwelcome To Pandora
aja Flattery, as chaplain/psychiatrist of the Tau
Ceti expedition, had participated in the development of the vast artificial
consciousness known as Ship that had guided humankind to the stars. Now Ship
has its own destiny - and its own demands. And Raja finds himself awakened
from cold sleep to assist in the creation of a new order of man that can
participate in the ultimate act of evolution: worShip. But two men threaten
the very exsistance of life on Pandora, both in high positions. The only
hope for Pandora lies in Raja Flattery and the last Earth-born human, Ship's
favorite, the young poet, Kerro Panille.
The Lazarus Effect
A World Of Water
hip, an artificial intelligence that believed it was
God, abandoning its unworthy human cargo on the all-sea world of Pandora.
Now centuries have passed. The descendants of humanity, split into Mermen
and Islanders, must reunite... because Pandora's original owner is returning
to life, the sentient kelp.
The Ascension Factor
New Worlds, New Destinies, But First We Must Survive Ourselves.
he sea-world of Pandora, so unlike waterless Dune, is
similar in one fateful way - its struggle for survival. An awesome conflict,
one that will either transform or destroy the planet, has divided the people
of Pandora: its dictator, the sadistic Raja Flattery...its resistance, the
anarchistic Shadows (who may or may not exist)...and its promised savior,
the beautiful near-human Crista Galli, who was raised undersea. Now the
remnants of humanity, having mastered the Void and transformed this new
world, depart once more for the waiting stars. . . But this time, Man does
not go alone.
