What is History of a Galaxy, really?
Why should I read it? What will I learn?
In ancient times, a Roman philosopher
named Seneca made the following observation:
Fate rules the affairs of men, with no recognizable order.
Two thousand years later, a young entrepreneur
named Yzarc came to a different conclusion:
The more often improbable events occur, the more
likely it is that they are simply the norm.
Countless others have pondered the apparent contradiction:
Around us, the world is filled with randomness and chaos.
Yet, it is also filled with patterns and order.
Is there a bridge between chaos and order?
Does the swell of randomness stem from an underlying pattern?
What does it all mean?
Though Yzarc pondered these questions, he did not realize how close he was to their
answer. In part, this is the story of Yzarc, and his unexpected role in history.
More, this is the story of all those drawn to
randomness, certain that something more lies behind it.
This is the story of a galaxy. Ours.
That was awfully vague.
Okay, here's why you should read it. There's dragons, pirates, emperors,
teleportation, strange planets, kings, knights, math, galaxies, aliens, swamps,
space ships, craziness, spheres, new languages, mad scientists, pyramids, and really
neat maps... what more could you ask for?
So basically you took every subject from SciFi/Fantasy you were
interested in and combined them?
Absolutely. What more could you ask for?
Um, the frequent references to cheese are a bit unexpected.
I'm from Wisconsin, it can't be helped.
What is Wisconsin like?
If you read Book I, you'll find out. You'll also be introduced
to Lexon and Xenon, important planets to know about if you're interested in galactic
