Kurzbeschreibung

The second of Peter Salisbury's Passenger novels.

The electronic mind patterns and DNA records of Raife Harris and Doctor Nancy Zing have been travelling for one hundred and twenty years. They will be the first humans to see Zeta Nine.

The AI system aboard an Explorer ship is only interested in worlds habitable by humans. Raife and Doctor Zing are naturally excited when they wake to find Explorer 5017 in orbit. The viewscreen displays a beautiful Earth-class planet covered in lush vegetation and warm seas. Even better, there is an apparent absence of biohazards and predators. Everything looks perfect but is it too good to be true?

Follow the pioneers’ journey as they fight to maintain their colony. Together they battle against unseen dangers, explore a forest canopy which conceals an ancient mystery, and discover a cache of curious metallic objects.

Mehr über den Autor

From his early teens Peter Salisbury seized on anything science fiction: novels, comics and short stories. He then started on the classics and has been fascinated by tinkering around with words ever since.

Peter obtained a Chemistry degree at London University in the 1970s. Thereafter, he avoided chemistry during his teaching career, focusing instead on Communication Skills, General Science, and IT. In the 1990s, Peter wrote non-fiction professionally, abstracting from patents of chemical inventions for a London science publisher.

Peter Salisbury's first novel was published in 2009. More than a dozen books later, he still has many more stories to tell and he hopes you enjoy reading them as much as he enjoys writing them.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Great Novel On How To Travel To Other Planets 10. Oktober 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
A good science fiction novel takes you on a journey to places where you can't possibly go; an incredible science fiction novel shows you how to get there.

Passengers to Zeta Nine by Peter Salisbury is of the latter sort. In this story about future explorers to a distant planet called Zeta Nine, Salisbury uses his scientific background in describing the discovery of a presumably uninhabited planet. His vehicle, aptly named "Explorer", has been sent on a journey of 120 years to explore the distant planet. Interestingly, there are no humans (as we know them) on-board this high tech ship. When Explorer achieves its orbit above Zeta Nine, its computers signal the creation of human pioneers using stored DNA records and mind patterns.

Salisbury uses precise language to describe the various technologies in his novel. At first, the reader will say, "That is just fiction!" But as she reads further, it dawns on her that she had read or heard on the news that the exact process described by Salisbury is currently being developed in some obscure laboratory at some university somewhere. The technology may not be commercially viable or necessarily socially acceptable at this time, but that is a question best left to bioethicists or engineers to argue at some pedantic symposium as they sit on a stage behind a long table, draped with a white cloth.

Although I rave about the technical aspects of this story, the story itself is about two reconstituted adult pioneers' struggle to understand the new world into which they have been reborn. The story has elements of intrigue and conflicting motives. Our pioneers must deal with demands from afar while trying to absorb the tremendous mysteries that confront them on Zeta Nine.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Space colonization, problem solving, and advanced technology 16. August 2010
Von Sharol Collum - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I Just finished reading Peter Salisbury's "Passengers to Zeta Nine" which reminded me of when I was a kid and the excitement of discovering science fiction through Arthur C Clarke's "Against the fall of Night," which was written in the late 1940's about a young Alvin of Loronei, who lived in the city of Diaspar a billion years into Earth's future, and how he discovers other civilizations.

This book created the same excitement for me. The minutiae of colonizing a carbon-life-form supporting planet made me wish I was there with them, discovering the old settlements of a mysteriously missing indigenous population, easily defeating a government agency threatening takeover through intelligence, cooperation and reason, and the cloning/birth of the initial human population for population support, testing, and preparation.

After reading "Passengers to Sentience" and this book, I realize the broader scope of the theme. The first book laid the ground work to the technology and it's range of possibilities, how mankind can colonize the far reaches of the stars living longer, healthier, fulfilled lives with cloning, stem cell implantation, personality downloads, and eventually discovering other intelligent lifeforms.

The second book deals with an actual team of intelligent skilled colonists, two of which help expand the possibilities of space exploration, and initializes Zeno-archeology.

I was struck by how the initial team of colonists worked well together, diffusing personality differences and disparate skills with communication, cooperation and teamwork. Don't we wish all life worked that way? People who could rise above the situation to reason the best way to do things for the greater good.

The only disappointment was when it ended, and now I have to wait for another.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Going to Zeta Nine 2. Oktober 2010
Von L. Mihay - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I stumbled across a Kindle forum group called The Spinning Wheel: An Old Fashioned Cafe and Book Store, where I have met many ebook/Kindle/traditional authors. They have been giving readings on their books, and I have to admit, I've bought a lot of books based on these readings. Many of these books are not my normal fare, and some just didn't do it for me, but Peter's book did! I got Passengers to Zeta Nine & Passengers to Sentience. I have just finished the Zeta book, and am looking forward to going to Sentience.

The book is well-written, and while not especially a cliff-hanger, it does a really good job of teasing you into thinking it is. A pioneer space probe has found a potentially viable planet, and the first two "explorers" are so anxious to check it out, they are immediately killed. Being "rebirthed" (really neat!), they are considerably more cautious. However, there's always that fear, in the background, that every discovery could be the next killer.

I like the characters, and all the futuristic goodies. There is so much detail, that it's like being, there in person. I think you will really like this.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Pioneers 25. September 2010
Von Helen Smith - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Raife and Dr Nancy Zing are pioneers. They have been travelling for a hundred and twenty years - or at least their minds have, stored electronically - and their mission is to explore and colonise new territories. When their space ship Explorer 5017 finally goes into orbit, their stored identities are `born' into their new bodies. They are ready to start their mission. With artificial intelligence on board to ensure that they are protected from harm and there's no possibility of bio-hazards outside, what can possibly go wrong?

I bought Passengers to Zeta Nine after reading P J Salisbury's first book, Passengers to Sentience, which I found through a recommendation in Amazon's kindle forum. The dry, witty style I enjoyed so much in the first book is evident again from the first few pages of this one as Raife and Dr Nancy find their way around their new home.

From the detailed descriptions of the world itself - the geography, the technology used to explore it, and how it works - it seems that the author must know the place and be reporting back to us.

I'm looking forward to reading the next book in this series.

1.0 von 5 Sternen This book was crap 6. Juni 2013
Von Athrogate22 - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
total crap. It was written as if the characters have the IQ and maturity of 14 year olds given a mission of supreme importance and using technology giving them limitless possibilities and power. And the whole book continues on like that...this book has nothing to provoke either thought or excitement. There is no real drama to any of the relationships, and when something does happen...they just handle it simple and quick with no problems. Yea right.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Sci-Fi in the old tradition 17. Oktober 2013
Von JerryS - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I've been reading sci-fi for over half a century and, though I like it all, my favorites are always the ones that take me on an adventure to new horizons. This novel takes me back to those days where I can feel as if I'm exploring with the characters in the story. It definitely leaves a lot of questions in your mind that begs you to look for the next book in the series. I enjoyed Peter's writing style, though the only reason I rated it 4 stars is that some of the parts in the book were a bit tedious and I tended to do more skimming over those areas. Minor point, though, and doesn't really detract from a darn good story. Good work, Peter.
