Von Ein Kunde am 16. August 1999
Format: Taschenbuch
The editors really blew it on this one. While the author starts with a decent, if fairly worn set of premises, and has a few genuinely unique ideas strewn about, he obviously can't help but tell us everything he knows about the defunct SSC project along with some physics wet-dream stuff. This candy is only good when skillfully mixed with good characterization and plot pacing. Instead, we get fairly 2D characters, ham-handedly described, and reams and reams of Q&A designed to bore the reader into skipping ahead to see if anything ever actually happens, or if this is a tour guide disguised as fiction. Frequently, the "conversations" turn into a brain dump of the author's banal familiarity and bias on everything from Dallas society to particle physics. People don't talk like this!
Then it gets worse. Just as things seem to be able to get interesting, a cheesy deus ex machina gets pulled and saves the day. Instead of putting us out of our misery and ending it there, Cramer then continues by having our heroes play politics. I'm not kidding. Was he trying for humor? The one love story seems contrived and is as limp as a month old asparagus. The deepest irony is that the lone female character, used pretty lamely as a foil througout, is a bad scifi writer.
There is plenty of good hard SF out there. Read "Cosm" by Benford instead of this dreck.

At least Cramer, in spite of his scientific background, doesn't fall into these traps. His characters are interesting, decent morally, and are justifiably motivated to do what they have to do. Cramer also manages not to bog the reader down in inordinately long ramblings filled with technical jargon, or at least he made me feel not to be ignorant of what he was talking about by graciously filling me in on the numerous acronyms. Which is unlike what several current wordmeisters of modern hard scifi are actually doing. My only complaint with this exciting, easily readable and enjoyable book, was that Cramer seems to have truncated the tale too early, and left a bit of unresolved issues (maybe a sequel intended in that). Still, EB is clearly a heart-stopping mixture of Lovecraftian mythos and Borg mania. (Made me almost feel as if I was reading another great novel by William Browning Spencer [Resume With Monsters].) This book is a steal. Grab it!

Von Ein Kunde am 3. Juni 1998
Format: Taschenbuch
"Einstein's Bridge" is reminiscent of Benford's excellent "Timescape". Both are authentic to the scientific endeavor and both are satisfyingly speculative while trying to get the physics right. "Timescape" is superior in many ways, but "Einstein's Bridge" shines the best when it covers the politics behind big physics. Cramer's take on the recent past (remember Quayle!) glows with the brilliance of astute hindsight.
This book is a wonderful conceit of why things turned out the way they did for the SSC.

Although meticulous in his physics, Mr. Cramer's depiction of the "ultimate alien" (the Hive) is distinctive only in that we've seen it before. Remember the Giant Ants in the 50's SciFi thrillers? Only their method of arrival seems different. But Mr. Cramer's lack of imagination in envisioning aliens is understandable ... if you consider the imagination used to get his trash-scifi-author-posing-as-a-reporter hero into the super collider to begin the story. Maybe he thinks that real scientists don't read science fiction?

Cramer takes what would be a worthwhile, but, not particularly original disaster book (that he, to his credit pokes fun at) and twists the second half into a delightful telling of our history with a terrible inside joke. I was about to give up when this twist captured my interest and swept me through. I will agree with others that the ending was not satisfying. I appreciate the use of cycles, but, we deserve a bit more. Overall, you shouldn't miss this one.

I really enjoyed Twistor, so when I saw another book written by John Cramer I eagerly bought it. It starts out slow, then turns into an action adventure with a touch of romance. It's full of exciting ideas in physics, computers, genetic engineering and time travel. John Cramer is one of the few scientists who can write exciting science fiction. All I can say negative about this book is that it ends just when its getting really exciting! Sequel?

As a professional in the life sciences, the physics of the Superconducting Super Collider and wormholes were inadequately explained. I remained a somewhat mystified outsider unsympathetic to all the main players, and the concept of the Iris character was just plain silly. Moreover, on page 48 of the paperback edition, the author has a traveler passing directly from Alabama into Louisiana without having to transit Mississippi. Now THAT'S a wormhole!

I found this book to be amazingly accurate in physical knowledge of the universe. The book was based on actual possibilites in real-world physics. Although higly objective, these certainly do exist (e.g. the probability of there being an infinite number of parallel universes). If one is interested in physics, specifically quantum and dynamic probabilities, as well as a science fiction theme, read Einstein's Bridge.
