One of the best genre SF novels of its kind 21. Februar 2000
Von Allan Rousselle - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I highly recommend this book. Like 1984, Atlas Shrugged, and Brave New World, it considers one possible future based upon trends in both politics and technology. Unlike those stories, however, it makes its point without being particularly heavy handed. The oppression of the frequencies-monitored society is part of the richly-developed back story; it is not a part of a sermon.
((frequencies)) works on several levels. On the surface, it's a sci-fi action story with chases, gadgets, and intrique galore. The novel features several excellently developed characters, and the writing conveys a great deal of compassion as well as irony, humor, and loss.
As I mentioned, the subtext also presents a great deal of food for thought with regard to human nature, the imperatives of committees, and the balance of benefit vs destruction that accompany any technological advance.
Mr. Ortega's greatest strength is developing great characters and putting them into readily understandable situations. The bad guys are not 100 percent evil, and the good guys (with one notable exception) are not completely untarnished. This makes them incredibly interesting and compelling.
Alas, the ending is just a bit open-ended for my tastes. It's very clear that this isn't the end of the story; that at least one (more likely, two) installment will be necessary to tell the complete tale. Assuming the writing is at least as good in the next book, however, I think I can live with that. I definitely want to read the next installment(s)....
So, buy this book, and make it compelling for Mr. Ortega to finish the next one soon!

Frequencies 17. Mai 2003
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Joshua Ortega has created an incredible futuristic Seattle without changing it into complete science fiction. His innovative creations of federal agencies and everyday life makes you think....could these things really happen? Some of his predictions have already begun to come true. Freeky! I highly recommend this book for anyone who is interested in a different view of the future - one that we can't imagine, yet we are moving toward. Be careful what you think - control your frequencies.....

Today's "Neuromancer" 16. Mai 2003
Von Kaylin A. King - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
This is one of the best SciFi Books I've read in a long time. I'd even venture to say this is the most original in concept and voice since Gibson's "Neuromancer". The concepts and events are very timely to the direction things seem to be moving that it was almost chilling to read. Great characters! Great Voice! Definitely a talent to watch!
Can't wait for the sequels Josh! Or the Movie!

A novel that crosses the genres of sci-fi and suspense 23. Oktober 2001
Von Amy - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
The first page just sings off the page and grabbed me with the descriptive prose and sardonic voice. I could see Seattle 2051 shimmer and morph before my eyes as the pages turned.
The beginning of the book builds slow as Ortega introduces the reader to intricate, yet well-defined characters who linger in your imagination long after the story ends. Where ((Frequencies)) could once have been considered a stretch of the imagination, it's evident in our post-September 11 world that this novel ironically mirrors life.
In an effort to control terrorists at the turn of the millennium -- following a 7-year stretch of time known as the Terror Years - the government implements a new type of technology that reads brain waves (frequency emissions) like a polygraph detector. The Freemon or FREquency Emissions MONitors (agents of a special division of the FBI) monitor communities for evidence of violators who emit brain waves that fall into the overly active omega range that is typical of subversive thinkers and terrorists. (Side note: "Wired Daily News" reported recently that Lawrence Farwell, a neuroscientist from Iowa, helped develop a real life neuro-imaging test that is being field-tested with some success by the FBI.)
In the government's zeal to maintain peace and control evil, the Freemon are accorded excessive power and lord it over the nation, like Big Brother in the age of Blade Runner. The pace of the novel quickens in a rush, revealing a plot twist that hits with the force of a synaptic disruptor.
On the surface level, this is a highly enjoyable read. Peel back a few layers, and you realize there is a depth and complexity to the novel that is not immediately evident. The infinity symbol and Omega, delta, and alpha characters representative of various frequencies within the electromagnetic spectrum also symbolize main characters in the book. Ortega has included a glossary that not only defines various technical terms and concepts, but contains additional information that was not evident in the story. Detail lovers will find a treasure trove to explore in both the content and book design.
My only critique is that I would have liked to have seen more conflict resolution with a few of the characters - Ignacio, McCready, Ashley and her brother - to wrap up what is promised to be the first in a trilogy. Overall, though, I highly recommend this read. Ortega is an author to watch.
