      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.

          Hey Mike! Just wanted to say that I spent some time adding more references and got the main Dennis E. Taylor Page “Un-Deleted”. Take a look and add what I missed!

          I haven’t tried building out a Bobiverse page, but I did link to the Wikia page for Bob which is getting fairly filled out!

          Updated Dennis page –

          Wikia Bob Page –

            I finally saw that — and then added a reference to the new Bender books that Dennis just announced.

    1. More Bobiverse please. You can’t just leave them wondering the galaxy. More please!!!!!

    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!

      Hi Rob, I was kicked off the Facebook page for telling a joke. It wasn’t a rude joke, it wasn’t offensive, it was just a silly joke! Not sure why it warranted being removed from your Facebook page, but I’d appreciate being added back in so I could keep updated about the bobiverse and interacting with other fans! Cheers

  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.



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

    Hey Dennis,
    Can I just say that reading your books has to be the best to have ever happened to me in my life. The hundreds of hours that I have spent listening to them on audible have been both the highlight and pleasure of my free time. You are most certainly the greatest sci-fi author
    I have come across and I have ALOT of sci-fi. Just out of interest is there any possiability at all that will be future books? You definitely cannot just not tell us what happens to Ich and Dae in the centre of the galaxy! The Bobiverse is most certainly the best thing ever written, so I very much hope that it can continue.
    From your greatest fan,

    1. There will be lots more bobiverse books.

    I have to admit I am not really a reader. BUT…. I have a stupid long commute to work and on a whim I got an audible subscription. Not knowing much about what to get I picked up a copy of “The singularity trap”.. Well it didn’t take me long to waist all my spare time burning through that. I am now working my way through the “Bobiverse” . My plan was to use my “audible” subscription to pass the time during my commute but now I find myself listening around the house etc. Nice work.

    On another note…Mr. Taylor. You could use an update to your website. It kinda sucks in a purple/boring no photos kind of way.

    Hello Dennis,
    In 50 years I have never written to a writer, band member or actor to convey my appreciation. I’m a regular guy, moderate sci-fi fan, dad and husband. For some reason I felt like telling you that the Bobiverse was actually awesome. It was funny, deep, scientific, imaginative and fun. It moved quickly and evolved ( which was my favorite part) and left me with a positive feeling. I loved it from start to finish.

    I could go on but you get the gist. Keep writing. And keep your characters growing and learning and skeptical.

    I LOVED The Singularity Trap, but I have a question: What does Sers mean? I’ve searched everywhere and find no definition.

    1. It’s supposed to be a gender-neutral version of “ladies and gentlemen” or to be used instead of “sir” or “ma’am”.

    I just wanted to say I found you and the Bobiverse on Audible and think it’s the best and most unique story I’ve read in years. I loved the characters and sometimes the books made me laugh out loud. I recommended the series to my Dad and now he’s just messaged me telling me he’s finished book 3. Thanks for writing such a great read and I look forward to books 4 & 5!

    All the best!

    Outland is the best of your books. I’m not one to write authors, as I’m totally blind. However, this is one of the best books I’ve listened to this year, and I listen to a great many books each year. I’m very anxious for the next sequel to Outland to be released!

    Congratulations on the success with Audible and otherwise! I read the Bobiverse books when they first came out and had less than a handful of reviews on Amazon Kindle. I was in shock after I read them (and Outland) to see that nobody was really reading them yet. I feel like the world has finally caught on and I’m beyond thrilled to find out that more books are coming out. I have not enjoyed another author before or since I finished the last of your books and finding this webpage and the information about your next books made my day…week…year! Thank you!

    I have to thank you for rekindling my interest in writing! I’m currently working on a few projects, including a scifi trilogy of my own. I’m very self defeating though and kind of wish I could get at least some opinions from other writers on things before I release them to the world. 🙁 Also, All hail THE BOB.

  2. Hey!

    Recently found this series on audible. Last Wednesday to be precise and I have a major major problem!

    … I finished all three Bobverse books as of today!

    … will there be more?

    Love this series, really great imagination. Perfect in every way.

    1. New book is coming out this summer.

    Bobiverse, Outland, Singularity Trap… all of your works have been incredible to read and listen to. The intellectual, science aspects in the stories, especially Bobiverse, is something I have searched for and continually search for in literature without it being a documentary or theoretical education type work. I listen to your books every where I go and at home as well. I have always loved books but your stories have drawn me in and I love it. I continually want more and more. It has really become my Heroin. Lol. I can’t wait to read Heaven’s River and Earthside! Please keep them coming. And if you have any suggestions on similar writing styles with that intellectual science type of story, please let me know. It’s great! You are one hell of an author and I am a huge fan of your work! Thank you for introducing me to such incredible stories and I hope to read/listen to more soon.

    Much appreciation and admiration,

    – Matt

    Hey Dennis, just pre-ordered your new book on audible and can’t wait for it’s release next week. Can you give me a couple of tips for other books you like? I am really frustrated with finding sci-fi that makes me so pissed at the author because he or she throws stupid drama or bogus situations that are apparently thrown in to the story to keep the extremely dim witted reader interested??? Sorry, don’t mean to be a Homer, but that’s really what I think sometimes.

    Hi, on one the the site pages it refers to ‘the bender book(s)’ plural. Is this still the case or now bender has been found, is that the end of this particular story arc? Btw, really looking forward to Earthside, keep up the good work 🙂

    1. Bender has been found, but of course the adventure spawned a whole bunch of new problems.
