2017 Goodreads Best-Of
I liked this review. Not too spoilerish, but gives a good flavor of what’s going on in the Bobiverse

Hi Dennis, glad you liked my review. I loved your Bobiverse trilogy, it was a refreshing change from the usual over-stuffed, dry hard SF, with a a focus on the implications of AIs and terraforming technology AND a great sense of humor. Exactly what I needed in 2017!
Since I have a chance to ask, did you get to meet Ray Porter before he narrated the series, and did you know he would be such a great match? I always wonder about the “collaborative process” between author and narrator, especially when it works so well.
And finally, I would remiss not to ask what you’re considering next, since many writers would try to stretch their series for a lot more volumes, so it takes some courage to wrap up with just three installments.
There will be more Bobiverse books, but they’ll be standalones, i.e. individual stories in the same universe. I hope to put out something like one book a year, as long as the stories keep coming. There will be other books as well; I’m finishing up Singularity Trap this month, then I’ll be re-editing and re-releasing Outland and then a sequel. That will take most of 2018.
Ray was assigned to my book by the audible people. I had no clue, as I’d never been exposed to audio books at that point. In retrospect, it was a very good choice. I’ve never met him, but we did exchange some emails before Ray started recording, so he could get a feel for the characters.
I came here hoping to see you had more bob-novels. The only part I didn’t like was putting it down and knowing the the story was over. Wonderful work. Thank you! And Ray Porter did an amazing job as well, I hope you guys collaborate in the future. Best wishes in 2018!
That’s great to hear there will be more BOBIVERSE stand-alone stories. The distributed nature of the Bobs makes for unlimited possibilities in a wide-open universe. Looking forward to that!
And for Ray Porter, I think you got the perfect match for your books, so that was a lucky break
Just finished book 3. Love the series. I can’t wait for the next one. Programmers rule.
