In the many-worlds theory of quantum mechanics, all possible events exist, have existed or will exist as each act or decision spins-off a plethora of parallel universes. This means, among other things, that every project I haven’t put into practice has in fact been accomplished by one of my many-world selves. Think then of all that I’ve accomplished over the years as I procrastinated, dithered and postponed putting my ideas into action!
in The Night’s Dawn Trilogy (The Reality Dysfunction, The Neutronium Alchemist and The Naked God), the very survival of humanity is on the line as the dead possess whole planets in a high-tech future. This massive epic is one hell of a ride; a relentless and incredibly entertaining space-opera of awesome proportions!
The Mars Trilogy (Red Mars, Green Mars & Blue Mars) is one of the most mind-expanding reading experiences I’ve ever had. It is a rich, sweeping, epic chronicle of the colonization of Mars as well as the rest of the solar system; the power humans have to transform their own environment and how that environment can transform humanity as well; the long-term impact of extending human lifespan by centuries and the catastrophic consequences of rising sea levels on Earth. But most of all, it is a roadmap to building a better civilization free from the poisons of the past.

Half-Life 2 feature a thoroughly immersive and engaging experience as you are drawn further into the ongoing saga of Gordon Freeman, scientist turned hero, and join the human resistance to Earth’s occupation by The Combine, a mysterious alien organization. Even if the underlying game technology has since been surpassed by other games, this follow-up to the ground-breaking Half-Life (1997) smash hit remains a mind-(and alien)-blowing experience of a rare level of intelligence and sensibility for any game.
It’s World War II and the allies have cracked the encryption of a major Axis communication codes. How can they act without revealing their access to this precious intelligence?
