Welcome everyone. I hope you had a wonderful Christmas. For those of you who are lucky to be off this week, it is the perfect opportunity to catch up on your reading. For those who don't have the week off, so sorry. Get in a chapter or two wherever you can. The word "wherever" looks odd but I just looked it up, it's spelled correctly. :D
Up first is the Stephen Baxter Manifold Series
Manifold: Phase Space- Book 4 (I have not read yet but put it on my wishlist for hubby to purchase).
All of these books try to provide a solution to the Fermi paradox. This is the argument by Enrico Fermi, that we are truly alone. In a universe as old as ours, he claims that extraterrestrial life should be more than evident. However, the human race has not collected any true evidence that there is life out there, somewhere. Fermi concludes that the universe is so vast and has existed so long , it is difficult for any one advanced civilization to exist for long periods of time. He explains that this may be why it seems that the human race is alone in the galaxy at this point in time. There are several counterarguments but I won't get into that. :D
Well, I hope you enjoy the series as much as I have. It contains everything from science fiction to murder and mystery.
Enjoy and Happy New Year!
