      Wikipedia doesn’t have the above-mentioned entry. Perhaps it was deleted for lack of sources. However, you are on the list (sub list: Novels) of Hard Science Fiction authors on Wikipedia!

      1. I was the Wikipedia editor who put the Bobiverse novels on Wikipedia, and shortly thereafter, before I was even finished with them, they got axed for “notability”. The rules of Wikipedia, such as they are and how sloppily they are applied, entries must be corroborated by more-or-less legitimate sources that indicate that the entries aren’t just some fanboi’s wet dreams. I plan to put the articles back up after I dig up some more references — if someone doesn’t beat me to it.

        The funny thing is, there are plenty of articles with even less actual notability than the Bobiverse has, and somehow or other they don’t get axed. It may be that book articles get closer scrutiny. Who knows? I sure don’t.

    This appears to be a fan wiki:

    I didn’t see a Facebook fan group, so I made one. 🙂

    I’m in a similar group for another terrific milscifi novel series, and have enjoyed making friends and sharing thoughts with like-minded fans. The author even comes on every so often, and answers questions when he can (though we want to keep him busy WRITING!). It’s been a great experience over the past few years, and the Bobiverse certainly merits similar treatment. 🙂 Hope you’ll join us!

  1. I’ve joined the Bobiverse FB group now. Rob Green, which milscifi series are you in the group for?

    Thank you for the immersive experience, Mr. Taylor!

    I will be definitely enjoying the book again in German and Russian. Being a fan of “accidental travel” genre, i have found myself in a pleasantly subtle self-fulfilling scenario with a great story development.

    I’m not going to badmouth the typical russian “popadanets” (aka. accidental travel) fiction in comparison, but it is for most parts quite heavy on self-fulfillment and Soviet nostalgy, even when we set aside the typical Eve Online fanfiction-esque works in hardcovers with micromanaging game mechanics in the beginning and fast rise to power due to seemingly abandoned mighty war or ancient hightech artifacts.

    I almost expected some deus-ex-machina at some point and was glad it wasn’t there, even if it had provided me a little enjoyment.

    Another great trait of the story is the cleverly picked up Von Neumann system with its quirks to create a society of different Bobs to interact with, as well as the quite realistic, for most part, ungrateful humanity, that provided the necessary dynamics to the story. When i compare it compared to some ego trips with shock-and-awe treatments, assaults by dumb enemies for sake of power demostrations, perpetual awe by bystanders and continuing ancient gizmos ripe to picked up, (because noone in last thousand years cared to do it) i notice the big difference.

    I must say, even villains are interesting, like Medeiros. Was there a mention of design of Brazilian ships? I initially thought he was “programmed to do his job”, like that less successful probe, until i had the feeling of him just going with the hate flow and lost sympathy for him.

    I wonder if there are storylines available for good fanfiction or spinoff about USE probes with Russian/German or any good writer from other countries’ minds having that luck escaping from Earth. I should perhaps draw a Bob expansion map to not interfere with the story.

    Until then, i will continue to re-read and being inspired for contributions.

    Hi Dennis,

    My wife and I love your books.

    Can you come to Cosine science fiction conference/workshop? It’s in Colorado!

    I really want a singed first edition. Maybe for her birthday. Do you know where I can get one? I didn’t see any on eBay.

    Anyway, thanks for the great read. I haven’t had that much fun reading in years.

    Best,

    Nate

    1. Depending on when her birthday is, there’s a signed hardcover boxed set coming out soon.
