Only 7 left in stock (more on the way). I have found in the past that Alan Dean Foster's works are easy to read and draw you in quickly. this story did not disappoint. The "heros" of this tale are somewhat of a departure for Mr. Foster in that they stand at oposite poles of a modern society. One character is an unprincipled low-life "freak" and the other is a consumate professional.

In a dark alley in Savannah, Whispr and Jiminy murder what they take to be a random tourist in order to amputate and then fence his sophisticated artificial hand.

Things have not gone smoothly for Whispr since he acquired the mysterious thread. Powerful forces are searching for him, and Jiminy has vanished. All Whispr wants to do is sell the thread as quickly as he can. When he offers to split the profits with Ingrid in exchange for her medical services, she makes an astonishing discovery.So begins a unique partnership. Unlike Whispr, Ingrid is a natural, with no genetic or bodily alteration. She is also a Harvard-educated physician, while Whispr’s smarts are strictly of the street variety.

  • Alan Dean Foster is a great story teller. As a word smith there are many authors who are better putting down pretty words. This hard science fiction is not his best work but I liked it well enough to buy, read and enjoy all 3 books.
    Each book is a complete story ark but after reading the first I wanted follow the characters further on their journey.
    Do read them in order.

  • I have found in the past that Alan Dean Foster's works are easy to read and draw you in quickly. this story did not disappoint. The "heros" of this tale are somewhat of a departure for Mr. Foster in that they stand at oposite poles of a modern society. One character is an unprincipled low-life "freak" and the other is a consumate professional. The two take a chance encounter and meld into an uneasy partnership that starts with curiosity and developes into an unintamate affection through travails of intense action with both authorities and an underworld enemy, yet to be defined, trying desperatly to protect a futuristic electronic message of great and as yet unrevealed import. Our two protagonists are engaged in a desperate search for answers where the stakes are knowledge, and enlightenment, smeared libeerally with the profit motive of the basest member. A solid read which I'm looking forward to continue in its sequels.

  • The Human Blend (Tipping Point Trilogy) by Alan Dean Foster

    I don't have much in my collection from Alan Dean Foster and that's all pretty ancient. So I thought I'd try this one out and see how his writing has improved. The premise is pretty good and the first chapter kept my interest; but then something happened and it might be related somehow to the fact that the author has quite a few film adaptations to his credit.

    The story starts out with two melds, Jimney and Whispr, as they roll another meld for his parts, or at least his advanced hand. Jimney is employing a device that stops the man's melded heart and his intent seems to include knowledge that this will kill the victim. Later Whispr makes a statement that either sounds like he didn't know all of that or he's trying to downplay what really went down. The bottom line is that the man has a piece of interesting tech woven into his clothing and they sign their own death warrants, when they take that. They are soon to be pursued by the police and two other shadowy agencies.

    Elsewhere Dr. Ingrid Seastrom discovers a rather interesting added bit of tech in a meld done through some of the cheaper meld markets. The tech seems to be some sort of impossible metal that is quantum-ly entangled and over a period of time vanishes leaving her with no evidence. We later discover that Dr. Seastrom may have some hazy edge to her practice that borders on illicit; though possibly she has twisted moral reasoning behind what she does. This is not well defined and almost comes as a surprise although as a reader I was certain that the goal was to ultimately mix Dr. Seastrom with Whispr.

    The next part of the novel is the cinematic influenced dance with death and destiny that brings Whispr through one desperate situation after another until he reaches the doorstep of the Dr Seastrom. In his wake are a number of victims who are mostly killed by way of brief association with Whispr. This part has the same feel as the movie Into the Night with Jeff Goldblum and Michele Pfeiffer. This made each meeting of Whispr with a new contact quite predictable in that the reader knows someone will soon show up and his contact would be permanently silenced. Many times the climactic scene was right while Whispr was there making the escape more thrilling. Oddly something happens, inexplicably, with the meeting with Dr. Seastrum and it takes much longer for the brute squad to catch up. By that time they have enough warning that the two have escaped.

    There is a bit of haziness about why Ingrid ends up finally on the run with Whispr; though there could have been any number of fair reasons it seems mostly an almost clinical yet obsessive interest in the new technology and what it might potentially mean to her patients (yet even that is unclear). Murder and mayhem now follow at a slight bit slower pace; the possible excuse for that being that the two together make a better team against those in pursuit. In fact, it seems that that isn't so; as the reader will see that that is more of a self delusion; while coming up close on the end.

    This is a serial so while the end is somewhat complete for this story the reader is left with a sense there is a lot more to come and we'll have to check those out to find the rest of the story.

    This is a fair offering in the SSF department and has element familiar to steampunk (In the augmented human quantity and the sense of a dystopic future). Though I have this sense that this novel could be compacted by removing some of the excess cinematic specials, there is something to saying that it would then deprive the reader of some of the basic journey to get to the point.

  • Had fun reading this book and the human interaction! I am starting the next book NOW! I cannot wait to see what happens!

  • I have read the first two books in this trilogy. I had some difficulty adapting to the new circumstances of the fictional human future but Foster's writing skills soon captivated my imagination. Foster's word use and sentence structure are at their peak. The subtle humor may pass unnoticed by the less initiated in Foster lore, but I find it most refreshing. I am anxious to read the final book in the trilogy.

  • These books are not the standard paperback format, so that can be annoying, and each is a little light in the size but once again we have a new and interesting setting developed by ADF and characters that are not only different but compelling.

  • ...just be sure you get the second book, and have it handy, because this one ends rather abruptly! Like all of his other books I've read though, well developed characters, solid plot lines, and a surprise twist or two are standard for this author.

  • Why drone on with a pile of page filler? Oh...I get it. To make a trilogy and hence more coin! I'm sure that when all three books are out even a novice writer could get it into 300 pages.
