Humankind has expanded out into interstellar space using star gates-technological remnants left behind by an ancient, long-vanished race. But the technology comes with a price. Among the stars, humanity encountered the Fallers, a strange alien race bent on nothing short of genocide. It's all-out war, and humanity is losing. In this fragile situation, a new planet is discovered, inhabited by a pre-industrial race who experience "shared reality"-they're literally compelled to share the same worldview. A team of human scientists is dispatched-but what they don't know is that their mission of first contact is actually a covert military operation. For one of the planet's moons is really a huge mysterious artifact of the same origin as the star gates . . . and it just may be the key to winning the war.… (mere)

A strong cultural-conflict type science fiction novel. The military characters are somewhat one-dimensional, but most of the book is dedicated to the more interesting interactions between the research team, which Kress invests with a fun mix of personalities, and the aliens, who are endowed with a novel and thought-provoking biological adaptation. Will definitely plan to read on in this series. ( )

Some intriguing stuff in here, but a lot of genre trash to wade through to get to it.

Probability Moon, by Nancy Kress, is the first book in a trilogy about the planet World, its people and the strange, alien artifact that appears to influence all of reality around it. A team of Terran scientists travel to this planet to interact with the natives, unaware that the mission is actually a military one that involves one of the "moons" of the planet, which turns out to be an alien artifact of immense age and power. While the scientists are attempting to understand the natives' sense of "shared reality" - there is no dissent among the people because dissent causes literal, physical "headpain" - they also stumble upon a buried artifact that may or may not be correlated with the "moon." But when they are seen to violate shared reality, they become "unreal" to the people of World and the matter of simple survival becomes most urgent.... I have always loved Nancy Kress's books; she's one of the few female hard-science sf/f writers working today and she manages to combine well-drawn characters with whom we empathize with clear and succinct discussions of the hard sciences, in this case physics and quantum physics. I'm not saying that I understood all the scientific underpinnings of the story, but I could at least grasp the general picture, and the momentum of the plot and the personalities of the characters carried me through the bits I didn't get. Recommended - I've already started on Book 2! ( )

Dedicated to Charles (husband Sheffield, presumably), this is Kress writing in 1970s hard-SF mode. You have you data infodumps ("Automatically her mind reviewed the planetary data. Point six nine AUs from its primary, a G8 emitting .48 of Sol's energy per unit area....") , your sketchy characters with barely perceptible backgrounds, a puzzle-driven plot involving an apparently primitive humanoid race, and some classic space opera involving a variant of crashing moons. This came across to me as an affectionate re-creation, with Kress channeling Sheffield much as Borges' Pierre Menard channeled Miguel de Cervantes in "Pierre Menard, Author of the Quixote." No better and no worse than the bulk of puzzle-driven hard-SF from the 1970s. I put it on a par with Stableford's Daedalus series. Warning: it's pretty slow going for quite a while, as all the pieces are put in place. There's one bit of characterization that's straight from 1930's SF that was almost enough to make me throw the book down. Then the momentum sharply picks up (page 186 in the hardcover for me) and stays there for the remainder and even explains the annoying bit. ( )

Men love liberty because it protects them from control and humiliation from others , and thus affords them the possibility of dignity. They loathe liberty because it throws them back on their own abilities and resources, and thus confronts them with the possibility of insignificance.
