For We Are Many

Dennis E. Taylor

Bob Johansson didn't believe in an afterlife, so waking up after being killed in a car accident was a shock. To add to the surprise, he is now a sentient computer and the controlling intelligence for a Von Neumann probe. Bob and his copies have been spreading out from Earth for 40 years now, looking for habitable planets. But that's the only part of the plan that's still in one piece. A system-wide war has killed off 99.9% of the human race; nuclear winter is slowly making the Earth uninhabitable; a radical group wants to finish the job on the remnants of humanity; the Brazilian space probes are still out there, still trying to blow up the competition; And the Bobs have discovered a spacefaring species that sees all other life as food. Bob left Earth anticipating a life of exploration and blissful solitude. Instead he's become a sky god to a primitive native species, the only hope for getting humanity to a new home, and possibly the only thing that can prevent every living thing in the local sphere from ending up as dinner.

This story really tingles my fantasies to clone myself. The idea to have myself copied over to multiple clones, we all have same interests and mostly same personalities is amazing.

I love how he had put this idea together in this story.

Understanding Baseball ⚾ has been in the back of my head for years now. I still can't relate to it at all.

Also American football 🏈

It took 240 pages to start to get some action going. I feel the whole romance and playing baseball wasn't really necessary. I like the line of other aliens and war more.

I enjoyed it, it's written in a very amusing way and it forced a couple laughs out of me.

Also Star Trek and Star wars fans will find themselves at home.

There is a big event near the end but overall I expected more to the plot in the first 3/4 of the book.

I highly recommend it, with a caveat that you have to read the first book before, this one assumes that and doesn't really give any introductions
