About the Author

Robert J. Sawyer has been called “the dean of Canadian science fiction” by The Ottawa Citizen.

He is one of only seven writers in history—and the only Canadian—to win all three of the world’s top awards for best science-fiction novel of the year: the Hugo (which he won in 2003 for Hominids), the Nebula (which he won in 1995 for The Terminal Experiment), and the John W. Campbell Memorial Award (which he won in 2005 for Mindscan).

In total, Rob has authored over 18 science-fiction novels and won forty-one national and international awards for his fiction, including a record-setting ten Canadian Science Fiction and Fantasy Awards (“Auroras”) and the Toronto Public Library Celebrates Reading Award, one of Canada’s most significant literary honors. In 2008, he received his tenth Hugo Award nomination for his novel Rollback.

His novels have been translated into 14 languages. They are top-ten national mainstream bestsellers in Canada and have hit number one on the Locus bestsellers’ list.

Born in Ottawa in 1960, Rob grew up in Toronto and now lives in Mississauga (just west of Toronto), with poet Carolyn Clink, his wife of twenty-four years.

He was the first science-fiction writer to have a website, and that site now contains more than one million words of material.

I very much enjoyed this trilogy of books. It is the story of an artificial intelligence spontaneously emerging on the internet. A new lifeform is suddenly born. Because this entity is discovered by a teenage girl, aspects of these books can have the feeling of "young-adult" or "teen-lit." However, that does not interfere with the level of entertainment these stories provide. There is a great deal of science and philosophy presented here, as well as much information about the internet and its history. These novels are thought-provoking. Be sure to read Wake, Watch, and Wonder in the proper order. You will have a good time. Michael Travis Jasper, author of the novel "To Be Chosen"

Fantastic! I read the first two of this series back-to-back and would have gone into the third but I don't have it - maybe it isn't available yet? When it is, I will get it. Great books!

I have been anxiously awaiting this book since reading the first book in the series. While I found the first one a bit slow, it eventually hooked me and I was really looking forward to what happened next. Picking up right where the first one left off, the main action centers around a US government agency becoming aware of Webmind and deciding they need to get rid of it. Our formerly blind protagonist and her family must now try to prevent that from happening. Along the way, Caitlin turns 16 and gets a boyfriend. While this is a distraction from the main plot, the budding young romance does help make the character more real. We see more of the chimp Hobo and that storyline finally intersects the main plot. I have to believe that more is yet to come in the 3rd book however. This one seems to move at much brisker pace than the first. Of course it doesn't hurt that this time around, we're already familiar with most of the cast and so we're not wasting any time getting to know them. I literally had a hard time putting this one down and finished it in just a couple of days. Now I just have to endure the long wait for the third and final book in the series to see how it all turns out.

The stories that we read define our expectations and in many ways our reality also. Stories like this one remind us to choose which stories we identify with and the type of world we create as a result.
