At the untamed frontiers of intelligence, consciousness, matter, and reality lies Rudy RuckerOCOs qThe Mad Professor, q a collection of twelve mind-bending science fiction stories that probe the outer limits of possibility. Rucker, an accomplished computer scientist and mathematician with numerous science books and novels to his credit, brings his deep and varied knowledge of the mind, mathematics, and the ever-weird and wondrous workings of the physical universe to the stories collected here. In qChu and the Nantsq we read of a bizarre future following a Verge Singularity, in which hyperintelligent computers have taken over the solar system. qPanpsychism Provedq breaks down the boundaries between mind and matter, exploring the notion that ?every object has a mind.OCO And qSix Thought Experiments Concerning the Nature of Computationq is an exhilarating collection of mini-stories taking us to the outrageous extremes of theoretical speculation. In qThe Mad Professor, q Rucker deploys the full range of his writing talent and scientific knowledge to take us on a wild romp through the known, the unknown, and the awesomely peculiar. qWhat works really well is to add a scrap of meat to an infusion, it gets dark and pukeful, and the critters go wild for a few days till they die of their own shit. ... I see beautiful shades of orange and red from all my little blood cells massed together. Sleepey ... The cells are bursting, and cracks are forming among them as they dry .
