Kurzbeschreibung

27. Dezember 1997 The Wonderlands Gambit , No 3
TRUMP CARD

Reality wasn't what it used to be. Life after life, as man, woman, and child, Cory Maddox was trapped in an endless cycle of ever-changing realities, on the run from his ruthless companions and from the shadowy figures that seemed to exist outside the increasingly unstable matrix.

As each new world proved increasingly bizarre, Cory wanted nothing more than to find the way home. Fragments of knowledge--a mysterious UFO crash, alien technology, glimpses of a computer that was controlling his fate--all pointed toward Matthew Brand, the virtual reality genius. But Brand had vanished long ago, into, or perhaps beyond, the borders of reality.

To break the cycle of cyber-reincarnation, Cory had to find Brand--before the actions of his enemies destroyed reality altogether . . .

Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende

Jack L. Chalker was born in Baltimore, Maryland, on December 17, 1944. While still in high school, he began writing for the amateur science-fiction press, and in 1960 he launched the Hugo-nominated amateur magazine Mirage. A year later he founded Mirage Press, which grew into a major specialty publisher of nonfiction and reference books on science fiction and fantasy.

His first novel, A Jungle of Stars, was published in 1976, and he became a full-time novelist two years later with the major popular success of Midnight at the Well of Souls. Chalker is an active conservationist and enjoys traveling, consumer electronics, and computers. He is also a noted speaker on science fiction and fantasy at numerous colleges and universities. He is a passionate lover of steamboats, in particular ferryboats, and has ridden more than three hundred ferries in the United States and elsewhere.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Ghost-written with the ghost of Philip Dick? 27. Februar 2000
Format:Taschenbuch
Actually, Chalker manages to incorporate his favourite themes: that stagnation leads to Hell, his fascination with how much power corrupts, and what some call an obsession with transformation. If nothing else, his "first world" in this book brilliantly analyses what would happen if women really did have power. David Brin did an equally good (albeit different) job, and few others have avoided the standard clichés. As a conclusion to his most paranoid trilogy, the book is brilliant, up to the last chapter. Fans of the late Phil Dick (of whom I am one) should recognise it as the last chapter of Dick's own book UBIK. This lack of originality nonetheless fits in with one of the most paranoid trilogies I have ever read.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Chalker's best to date 15. Oktober 1999
Format:Taschenbuch
This is fantastic stuff. I read through the whole series very quickly, always wanting to see what happened next. Chalker is a great storyteller, with excellent character development and retroactive exposition that will continue after you have finished the book, while you wonder just what the "real" reality is. BTW, I think "The Matrix" _did_ steal heavily from this series.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Mind-twisting as usual. 3. Juli 1998
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Taschenbuch
I really enjoyed both this book and the series in general. It has been yet another fine work by Chalker, although, like most of his works, it quickly becomes very confusing if you aren't paying attention. Or sometimes if you are. I would have liked a better ending, but it was, at least, appropriate.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Wrapped Up - but Why? 29. Mai 2001
Von Elderbear - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
I enjoyed the first two books of the trilogy. I found this last one a bit more fantastic than what had come before. It almost moved into Piers Anthony territory, but without the puns. Yes, we encounter "realities" (Everything you think you know is wrong) where not just politics and technological evolution are different, but the "human" species has evolved differently, too. Fun to play with these speculative worlds, but not as entrancing (for me) as the ones that more nearly paralleled _this_ world.
And yes, the reader finally gets the Holy Grail in this novel, but is it really anything more than just another cup? It doesn't matter, the quest was a lot of fun. We even got a bit of character development in the process. The worst thing about this book is how hard it is to get ahold of. It took me three months to track one down. If you're contemplating reading the trilogy (a worthwhile endeavor), then make certain you have a copy of this book in your hands before you begin!
