Nebula Award Finalist: A genetic engineering breakthrough may portend the destruction of humanity in this cyberpunk novel by the author of The Forge of God. This Hugo and Nebula Award finalist follows present-day events in which the fears concerning the nuclear annihilation of the world subsided after the Cold War and the fear of chemical warfare spilled over into the empty void it left behind. An amazing breakthrough in genetic engineering made by Vergil Ulam is considered too dangerous for further research, but rather than destroy his work, he injects himself with his creation and walks out of his lab, unaware of just how his actions will change the world. Author Greg Bear's treatment of the traditional tale of scientific hubris is both suspenseful and a compelling portrait of a new intelligence emerging amongst us, irrevocably changing our world. … (plus d'informations)

I'd read a few bks by Bear before this one. They were ok but this one was the one that convinced me that Bear has a far-reaching imagination. A biological researcher unleashes changes in life that speed up the paradigm shifts far faster than anything before this has ever done. Basic human form will never be the same again. This cd be taken as a warning against irresponsible biological/genetic/nanotechnology research or as a harbinger of possible changes to come that might be embraced by those who're totally sick of life as it is today. Either way, it's a fantastic novel ripe w/ implications. For those poor deluded people who somehow think that Michael Crichton's at the forefront of SF writing: Crichton's bk "Prey" (2002) is a weak version of Bear's "Blood Music" (1985). Crichton's got the moolah & the reputation but he's basically a propagandist for the status quo. Read the original! ( )

Had read some of his work that he had written in Asimov's Foundation series, enjoyed that so picked this up and really enjoyed this too. Good plot ( )

"Blood Music" was a great sci-fi novel. I'd seen it around for years, but never gotten to picking it up and reading it.

It begins with a genetic research scientist, Vergil Ulam, and his personal research done at the lab where he works. He's brilliant, but not entirely ethical, although he doesn't see it that way, he feels he's entitled to what he does, for instance, he sees no problem hacking into a university's computer to fake his academic record, because he knows he's capable of the job he's doing, the managers just need a "sound and light show" to go with it.

Any coincidence that Vergil's last name is Ulam, the same as the "father" of the hydrogen bomb?

Ulam's personal research is into converting individual cells into computers, with memory and processing power. His earlier work, E. Coli cells is successful, but each individual cell has only the brain power of a mouse. Later he uses some of his own white blood cells, and they each end up with the brain power of a monkey.

But when his boss finds out about it, and doesn't want anything to become public for fear of hurting the company's IPO, he orders Vergil to destroy his work. Vergil starts to, but then feels like they're his children and instead of destroying all, injects some (a few million cells) back into his body, intending to extract them again once he finds a job in another lab.

And that's how his intelligent research gets out of the lab and changes the world...

Overall I enjoyed it till the changes towards the end that left me sort of confused. ( )

Each hour, a myriad of trillion of little live things - microbes, bacteria, the peasants of nature - are born and die, not counting for much except in the bulk of their numbers and the accumulation of their tiny lives.
