David Zindell returns to speak with us about the launch of his new book, The Remembrancer's Tale - the first new installation in the Neverness universe in 25 years, since his Requiem for Homo Sapiens ended in 1998. We discuss why he has returned to Neverness to describe the next stage of evolution in humans and the universe, the metaphysics of memory, the relationship of Truth and Beauty, his conversation with Timothy Leary, and the scientific as well as aesthetic reasons to reject a reductionist, dead universe made of atomic billiard balls.
You can find more of David's work on his webpage www.davidzindell.com, as well as Marty's review of of The Remembrancer's Tale on goodreads.
