    Technofiction on Earth

    This book is a collection of short stories in which an interesting story is wrapped around an interesting science concept. White has a strong background in engineering, science and business. Because White is as concerned with good internal consistency as he is with good story telling, the results are stories that are fun because they take fun different twists from those found in conventional speculative fiction. These stories are different.

    In one story, The Failure, White tells about two scientists creating a new species of life. But it's not a biological species, it's a cyberspecies, and while it's much more powerful and intelligent than humans, it's not going to be either a devil or a god to mankind, it has it's own worries and aspirations. The point of the story is that there are many other relations besides evil overlord and loving patriarch between humans and an intelligent successor species. The failure part is because these scientists were seeking a way to increase manufacturing productivity, not create a new species. Now they will have to try again. Ah well...

    In another story, Searching for Angels, two scientists labor to summon a 4D being into our 3D plane of existence. The being is one that has been written about in the Bible - an angel! They succeed, but then comes the twist. This story explores how creatures of different dimensionality can relate to each other, and it's not easy!

    In all these stories White takes an interesting science or technology concept and then wraps an interesting unconventional story of human motivation around it. If you like thinking about your science fiction, this book is fun!

    This is Volume Two and it's about stories that take place on earth. Volume One is about stories that take place in space and on distant worlds.
