Timothy Zahn is definitely one of my favorite authors. He loves to explore a wide variety of topics in his science fiction novels. In The Sibyl’s War trilogy, he explores the question: “What if there was an alien ship, controlled by an ancient AI, that was then captured by space pirates who abducted people from all over the galaxy and made them fight each other to see if they would make good slave soldiers or not?” Continue reading The spaceship was an alien zoo controlled by an A.I.

I recently watched the Foundation series on AppleTv+. Although it’s not a fast-paced, action-packed, sci-fi thriller, I did think it was a great show. I feel like the show’s creators did an excellent job of helping us visualize the galaxy as Asimov describes it in his books.
