February 15, - Published on Amazon. I highly recommend the Ware series to anyone who likes finding sci-fi with a genuinely different take on the future. The Ware series focuses on the rise and evolution of artificial intelligences side-by-side with humans. The books explore the differences between biological intelligences and electronic ones and asks the question - is there a difference at all? You'll encounter human minds copied into software that runs in robotic bodies, artificial intelligences biologically encoded into DNA and born into human bodies and even more.
The books in this series were written in , , and and the earlier ones still hold up quite well. Rucker's style is humorous sometimes darkly so , fun and generally fast-paced.

If there's a downside, it's an over-use of future slang that occasionally interrupts the flow of the story as you try to figure out what a new word means or how a normal word is being used. This is only a minor quibble, however, and overall the quality is excellent. The characters are varied, unusual and have depth that's often lacking. Even characters that only have minor roles are very different and well-drawn.

After a steady diet of fantasy, horror, "softer" scifi, and classic lit over the last year or so, this book is welcome change.
It was personally recommended by author Earl Newton after I asked a group of authors for summer reading suggestions. I am glad that I took him up on it! Maybe my brain has gotten lazy, but between the techno-babble, the drug-fueled, On the Road?
Rucker's work had gone from challenging to confusing and distasteful. Maybe I will try to take this journey at some other juncture But for now, I say, "Basta!! Jun 18, Duip added it. Advice: Considering Rudy Rucker's lineage would be more interesting reading this tetralogy.

A pity, the ending is not good. Each theme of the sections is independent. Rudy's afterword are also very thrilling, attractive, funny -- especially when the mention of "Hollywood" --, and depressed -- life is always so. SF steps forward with time. For spanning about 20 years, a lot in the tetralogy is being unnovel, but it is just that.
I mean, that is normal. Every time I read this old big SF fiction, I go into musing about the influences of the background and the time on the notions and the fiction thereof. How was the feeling of writing an SF novel in the 20th century when there were low sci and tech, compared to the current? And for cyberpunk, few or no computer? One having lost the history cannot experience the same feeling. Each book depicts each piece of history, regardless of the genre. When ebooks had been born and are living a hard life, it is a bit amazing for me to see that Rudy publishes a free non-commercial version, which is definitely a great thing.
Laud him. Anyways, look forward, try and wait for the mind-and-body-separated future. Seek the gnarl. Everything about this book feels a generation behind, from the bullshit hippie lingo that's the foundation of Rucker's stiff, barely-competent prose to the Stand On Zanzibar version of a future with advancing technology but social values that didn't change with them.
Yeah, fine, drugs are more acceptable, but no culture of responsible drug use developed? The characters are flat, and they seem to have few motivations for how they behave. The plot doesn't move forward based on the needs o Everything about this book feels a generation behind, from the bullshit hippie lingo that's the foundation of Rucker's stiff, barely-competent prose to the Stand On Zanzibar version of a future with advancing technology but social values that didn't change with them. The plot doesn't move forward based on the needs or desires of the characters, it's just a tangled mess of things that happen because things need to happen in books.
What little personality the characters have comes primarily from exposition so heavy with a pastiche of antique slang it's almost impossible to parse half the time, so the net effect is more like someone explaining the plot of a novel to you rather than reading an actual novel. All in all, this feels like a series of science fiction novels written from , not Sep 18, Simon Bailey rated it liked it. It's hard not to echo other people's views on the tetralogy.

Starts off very well IMO, it's engaging and plausible, the characters are actually pretty good and I found myself enjoying this all the way through until about the last book. At that point, Rucker's imagination was extended to a full limit I think. He had taken the concept of materialism and applied a meta-physics to it that while it gave him an unlimited possibility for story lines, became a limiting factor for the story because where It's hard not to echo other people's views on the tetralogy.
He had taken the concept of materialism and applied a meta-physics to it that while it gave him an unlimited possibility for story lines, became a limiting factor for the story because where do you go once you've explored a race that can control matter with thought? Spirituality, art, creativity, war, sex, drugs, these all are explored but I think in the end the story fizzles out because once you have explored these areas, that's pretty much it. It's like playing a game of sim city, building the best city and then thinking, well, not much more I can do now and wandering off to read a book.
I don't think I'm a fan of the whole series, but did like books one and two very much. May 17, Julie Salyards rated it it was amazing. This is a collection of Rucker's "Ware" novels, which follow the descendants of Cobb Anderson - a brilliant robot engineer and emancipator - and a handful of other characters over many decades amid ever changing AI technology.

Although, I am not sure if AI or "robot" are appropriate words for Rucker's creations; they are robots, but they are also living and that is what is so intriguing about these books: the technology. It is cool, especially the idea of uploading personalities described in Sof This is a collection of Rucker's "Ware" novels, which follow the descendants of Cobb Anderson - a brilliant robot engineer and emancipator - and a handful of other characters over many decades amid ever changing AI technology.
It is cool, especially the idea of uploading personalities described in Software and the cosmic ray aliens in Freeware. I loved the technology and I liked that the same characters' lives were followed throughout the series. These books are very cool and a bit surreal. Dec 07, Mike rated it really liked it.
