would love more of BOB
When is next book coming??
I’m hoping to do one bobiverse book per year. Singularity Trap is coming out June 5, 2018. The Outland re-issue should be finished by May and released in the fall sometime. Once I finish Outland, I have to decide on my next book. It’ll most likely be either the Outland sequel or another bobiverse book. That will probably get released end of 2018 or early 2019.
Dennis, I recently wrote a long-overdue review of the bobiverse books on Goodreads. I wanted to share an excerpt with you here because I am hoping to see more bobiverse stories in the future, and to that end I think this little tidbit may inspire you to further develop the bobiverse to what seems to me to be the next level.
Forgive me if you are already on top of this science, but just in case…
“There is only one plot device in the bobiverse (which I will not disclose for fear of spoiling the story) that well-informed readers will question, but even that one is firmly postulated by none other than the late John Wheeler of Princeton and demonstrated mathmatically by Jacob Bekenstein (and many others). The ‘holographc principle’, the idea that the universe is literally constructed of information encoded on a two-dimensional surface on it’s boundary (Scientific American, August 2003), provides a solid theoretical foundation for what turns out to be the most important weapon invented by the Bobs.”
Best regards and please keep them coming!
Hi Dennis, we have a group of people on the SubReddit r/bobiverse working on a list of possible sources for each Bob name. If you feel so inclined, please stop by and comment on our guesses. Thank you!
I’m not sure I want to disturb it. Mostly you’re doing pretty good.
Hi Dennis, I can understand trying to leverage off the success of Ready Player One but it might also cost you some readers. I found the Bobiverse first thanks to Audible. I was extremely disappointed to go from your works to Ready Player One. Just something to bare in mind, if I had started with Ready Player One I would never have found Bobiverse and that would have been disappointing.
