Overview

Picoverse: a universe one million-millionth of our own, created by deliberately ripping apart the fabric of space-time.

A big-bang of an adventure, Robert Metzger's Picoverse boldly embraces the grand traditions of the genre, while exploding beyond the limits of knowledge, beyond the edges of the imagination, and beyond the boundaries of the universe as we know it.

"Probably the most daring SF novel since Ringworld...mind-boggling." (F. Paul Wilson, author of All the Rage)

"Bob Metzger knows his science. He proves it in Picoverse, a complex and intriguing story that ranges widely through time and space." (Charles Sheffield, author of The Spheres of Heaven)

"Metzger has captured the essence of that good old time religion SF fans have worshiped since the genre began: a rousing hard SF tale with a true Sense of Wonder...This one is a winner." (David A. Truesdale, Editor, SFWA Bulletin)

"A 21st century leap from the physics lab into the multiverse that only Gregory Benford, Philip José Farmer, and A.E. Van Vogt could have written-if they had ever collaborated." (Tom Easton, Reviewer, Analog)

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
In a last-ditch attempt to save the funding of his high-energy physics project, Professor Horst Wittkowski accidentally destroys his laboratory during a test run. The destruction only whets the appetite of the government secret-projects observers, who immediately whisk the team to a hidden facility. There, they are coerced into using the immense power generated to create a new duplicate microuniverse, whose increased speed of evolution would allow us to mine them for information as they develop beyond us.

With more twists than a barber pole, Metzger's second full-length book weaves together particle physics, time travel, and alternative history that pits the combined forces of Patton, Tesla, President Will Rogers, a six-year-old who might be a billion, and the greatest physicists of the 20th century against an ageless rogue android who manipulates entire societies.

Hopping dimensions, they seek a portal to an insane, omnipotent machine bent on destroying all universes in a tale that is never dull. (B.B.)

Publishers Weekly
This fast-paced romp through multiple manmade universes from Metzger (Quad World) will appeal to hard SF fans who like their science served straight up. In 2007, a team of physicists working on fusion power stumble onto a way to create new, smaller universes picoverses which replicate everything in our universe but smaller. After a disastrous test of the Sonomak machine, the mysterious Alexandra takes over the project. She has her own priorities, which include escaping her bosses into one of the picoverses, and she needs researchers Katie, Horst and Jack to execute her plan. Naturally, things go awry, and Katie and company find themselves exiled to a picoverse that duplicates Earth in the 1920s. The Sonomak is a reality there, too though made with vacuum tubes and run by researchers who include Werner Heisenberg and Albert Einstein. This is just the start of a race through a number of picoverses, as our heroes attempt to get home and defeat the nonhuman Alexandra. Alternate realities collide, with the very fate of Earth and the universe at stake. The preponderance of characters with superhuman powers gets old, as does the author's holding back crucial information about events and then springing it on us just in time to save the day. But the book hangs together thematically turns out saving the universe is not about manipulating the fabric of space-time, but about manipulating someone who can manipulate the fabric of space-time and the happy ending satisfies. Agent, Richard Curtis. (Mar. 5) Forecast: Supportive blurbs from the likes of Gregory Benford, F. Paul Wilson and Charles Sheffield should help, but some readers may be put off by the author's over-reliance on deus ex machina. Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
Library Journal
Physicists Katie McGuire and Horst Wittkowski believe in their latest development in plasma physics, an energy process known as Sonomak. The government also has an interest in Sonomak's capabilities, but its agenda strays far from the path of pure science. The author of Quad World has produced a scintillating foray into hard sf and speculative science that masquerades as a fast-paced technothriller complete with government heroes and villains, dedicated scientists, and a child-genius whose mind bridges the space between worlds. For most sf collections. Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
