SUMMARY Riding the Torch

FREE DOWNLOAD Riding the Torch 107 SUMMARY Riding the Torch Zweitausend Raumschiffe rasen durch die Leere des RaumsAn Bord die letzten Überlebenden der Erde auf der Suche nach einer neuen Heimat für die Mens. I love mining SF obscurity and uncovering those precious gems of spectacular buried under the surface of anonymity poor marketing and short memories THIS is one of those lost doses of greatness A powerful deeply moving story dealing with the foundational issue of humanity s place in the universe It is a spiritual journey but in the humanistic rather than religious sense UniueevocativeintelligentmemorablePLOT SUMMARYSet in the distant future where a convoy of several hundred torch ships containing what is left of mankind have been traveling through space for than a 1000 years looking for a new home after Earth went FUBAR While the convoy meanders through space the mysterious Council of Pilots coordinate long range survey ships to seeking out habitable planets The survey pilots known as voidsuckers are aloof and detached and spend their time secluded from the rest of the convoy For the rest of society life is has become a never ending spring breakorgydinner partyarts festival as a result of advanced technology creating a post scarcity living condition Complete matter energy conversionmanipulation allows a person to modify their environment at will In addition an implant known as the tap allows a person instant access to all known information and importantly the ability to tap into another s body to share their physical sensations Hedonism is the name of the game and the population spends all their time seeking out newer and extreme forms of sensory experience In this environment artists are the A list celebrities given their ability to imagine and conjure new forms of physical experience that their audiences can share whether in the form of food paintings music etcThe most famous of these artists is Jofe D Mahl who we are introduced to at the premiere of his latest senso called The Wandering Dutchmen Sensos are basically moviesconcerts in which the audience through the tap fully experiences the vision of the artist The Wandering Dutchmen provides the reader a history of the destruction of Earth and the beginning of the torch ship convoy through the characters of the Flying Dutchman and Jesus I always like it when writers find clever ways to info dump and provide backstory and I thought this was brilliant When the Council of Pilots announces that one of their scouts has discovered a potentially habitable planet Jofe is given the rare opportunity of joining the scouting team What Jofe learns and his experience with the pilots transforms both him and the story and sets the stage of the exploration of the fundamental theme of the story THOUGHTSThis is one of those SF stories that really churned me up emotionally and has stayed with me ever since I first read it several years ago The second reading has done nothing to muffle or ameliorate this effect and I still count this as one of my profound experiences with science fiction along with gut punchers like Flowers for Algernon and The Ones Who Walk Away from Omelas The writing is good and Spinrad makes the story entertaining with regard to the normal SF tropes of advanced technology and peering into imaginary futures Fundamentally however this story is about innerness and carves its mark by exploring the psychological and the spiritual This is a hypothesis of humanity s rank in the pecking order of the universe and it is to say the least humbling Spinrad s vision is strong it is enormous in its implications and it unsettled me to my very core I ve now read this twice and I would imagine that I will be reading it again before too many years have passed A gem worthy of being found polished and placed somewhere where others can admire it for its brilliance 45 to 50 stars HIGHEST POSSIBLE RECOMMENDATION Hugo Nominee for Best NovellaLocus
