GerBunderBoo UngDongerSnug!  Sathephine has thrown Echo 2 five stars on Amazon!  I was particularly proud of this rating, as my noobery in Echo 1 had only garnered three stars from her in my fiction-writing debut.  Thank You Muchly, Sathephine!!!  🙂 🙂 😀

Here’s the review:

“A thrill to read!
January 19, 2019

Whew! I actually finished this right after reading the first book (Echo Volume I: Approaching Shatter) and it actually felt like a complete package like that. In any case, this entire second book is action packed and such a thrill to read, from start to finish. Can’t wait to read the next installment! Hang in there, Atriya!”

      • My wife is Jewish. I just view Christianity view a decidedly Jewish lens. I don’t need a philosophy in a book of fiction to align with mine, especially since this is an alien environment a thousand years in the future. Orson Scott Card, the author of “Ender’s Game” felt it was important to include spirituality and religion in SF/F, even if it was alien, because the metaphysical is foundational to intelligent life. If we just try to understand our existence through classical scientific thinking, we’re missing a lot of meaning about who we are and what it means to be alive.

      • That’s a good point! Interesting that he picked miscommunication as the cause behind the war in Ender’s Game (if I remember correctly from the analysis of future books). I never read past the first book. Now I’m thinking I should.

      • I gave it a skim (just started an internship so I gotta read stuff faster now on top of waking at 3am in order to hit all my stuff). I think in order to agree with him, I’d have to find out exactly what he meant by “religion.” He references God, but that can be as strict as an external figurehead dictating a set of ironclad rules and their punitive consequences, or it can be as loose as an idea of an ever-present field of consciousness that connects and comprises us, and orders our existence. I am against the stricter interpretations, as they imply we must always think dualistically, and that we are creations of an omnipotent being who causes us to suffer and toil for no reason we can comprehend. Why create something like us in the first place? It’d be similar to me creating computer simalucra that I purposefully abuse and arbitrarily reward, implying that I have too much time on my hands and am driven to act from a profound lack of purpose.

        The looser interpretation I find acceptable, but I’m not wedded to it. If everything is a random fluke with no underlying order, I will still endeavor to act in a functional and ethical manner. I believe over the long term, ethics becomes function, so over a sufficient span of time, I believe they are one and the same.

      • Yep I’ve known for a few years. It’s why I’ve always been very impressed with him—he managed to nail human nature and its interplay in military strategy so well that his book landed on the Marine Corps Commandant’s reading list.
