Probability Moon book.

Probability Moon by Nancy Kress has a good storyline and excellent techie science. The characterizations were good, even the aliens were easy to get to know and understand and so was their alien environment. The banal treatment of the alien's complete conformity was jarring.

Tom Doherty Associates, 16 сент. For one of the planet's moons is really a huge mysterious artifact of the same origin as the star gates. and it just may be the key to winning the war. At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.

PROBABILITY MOON by NANCY KRESS (2000). For Charles, who certainly earned it. Men love liberty because it protects them from control and humiliation from others, and thus affords them the possibility of dignity. They loathe liberty because it throws them back on their own abilities and resources, and thus confronts them with the possibility of insignificance.

Earth is an environmental disaster area when humanity gains new hope: a star gate is discovered in the solar system, built by a long-gone alien race.

When a new race of aliens stumbles upon the ancient star gates that make interstellar travel possible, humankind sends a team of scientists to study a newly discovered planet populated with an alien society in which everyone agrees on the truth. 10,000 first printing.
I really wanted to like this more, as I enjoyed the world and characters, but the resolution of the plot at the end was a bit flat and confusing to me. A significant part of the book was dedicated to the climax, but it passed barely noticed and vaguely resolved. I was a fan until the final chapter, but I need a more satisfying ending to recommend.
I love the work of Nancy Kress. She is, in my mind, a grand master of hard science blended with realistic speculation in the sci-fi genre. This first volume in the trilogy finds a very worn out and war-weary earth suddenly discovering a stargate through which they can reach out and colonize more planets than ever before. Earth is at war with the only other species, the Fallers, known to be capable of interplanetary travel. The Fallers are ruthless, never negotiate and take no prisoners. They are winning. When Earthers send their first probe through the gate, it sends back information suggesting a very earthlike planet with several moons.
The first manned ship to travel to the new planet discovers a very unique civilization in which the residents are of one mind and when that mind is in full conformity, something is declared "real". If an individual does not fall into complete agreement, they are considered "unreal" until they rejoin the collective mind, they are again declared real.
The earthlings, with their separate minds, are considered unreal until a few show that they can be considered real.
Of course, the mission has a hidden military agenda, which sends some of the crew into the depths of the most sacred mountain, where they have traced an unusual signal. It turns out this this non-native artifact is the source of the one mind of the inhabitants. It also possesses indicators that one of moons of the planet is actually a much larger version of the artifact and has the potential for use as a very powerful weapon in the war with the Fallers.
Needless to say, the off-worlders are condemned ultimately as unreal and end up fleeing the planet to save themselves. Some choose to stay behind and continue the work they believed they were sent there to do, anthropology, botany and zoology.
The use of the stargate system, also built by those who built the artifact on the planet and the false moon, is complicated and I will not try to summarize it here. Let's just say that Nancy Kress works her special magic to get this trilogy off to a grand start.
Curse words are not my thing. It got worse as it went along. That's very disappointing when I have just purchased the second book.
Probability Moon by Nancy Kress has a good storyline and excellent techie science. The characterizations were good, even the aliens were easy to get to know and understand and so was their alien environment. The banal treatment of the alien's complete conformity was jarring. Among them everybody knew everybody else's thoughts and everybody agreed with everyone else. This created a great contrast with the earthlings who were constantly forced to think out of the box, and one of them was even out of his mind. Good read!
An underrated author of quality science fiction. This trilogy is a worthy addition to any fan's home library, and I recommend it wholeheartedly!
I had heard about this book through Nancy's blog when she was discussing making up a new fundamental particle for a novel. It was in here, a particle that influences probability, called a probon. Also in here was an offshoot of humanity that had evolved in the presence of an ancient artifact that manipulated probability. The Worlders, people of the planet World, had developed something called Shared Reality, which meant that there was almost instant agreement on things between people once they shared ideas and probability shifted the mind of one to the viewpoint of the other. The idea would then travel around the world until everyone believed the same thing. In this way the people of World were of one accord, and there were no wars, and very few murders. Of course the flip side is that there is no independent thought, and no innovation. Come the people from Earth through the ancient gates, involved in an interstellar war with the Fallers, the only non-human race yet found. The war is not going well for the humans, and they look at the artifact in space around World as a possible salvation.
I thought the culture of World was very well developed, and Nancy laces it with a dark side as well. People who don't share reality and unreal, and to be killed, including Earth explorers who show independent thought. The characters were very well developed, especially the Anthropologist who thinks that shared reality will be the salvation of mankind, in the middle of a war of survival in which Earth needs all of its murderous instincts to survive. Another winner by a master writer that I highly recommend.
