Descripción

Tor Books, New York, New York, U.S.A., 2002. Hardcover. Book Condition: Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Fine. 1st Edition. Fine in Fine, Flawless, Inscribed to fellow explorer, 1st ed 1st pt in archival protection. A near-future thriller that posits the idea that people can create short-lived duplicates of themselves, 'dittos,' to perform routine or dangerous acts. Private detective Al Morris uses a variety of dittos to investigate corruption that centers around the makers of dittos, but in the process Brin questions who is the real Al Morris and, even more interestingly, examines a host of ontological problems raised by ditto technology. For the most part, Brin skillfully balances these philosophical issues with a gripping thriller, bringing a remarkable new dimension to traditional SF stories of golems and robots." - Anatomy of Wonder.

Descripción de la librería

GAMBIT'S Collectibles Hi, my wife and I recently founded GAMBIT'S Collectibles on line business. We decided to name the business after one of our family members. We first met Gambit at an -Adopt a pet- show held by a pet store as a community services event. We were actually looking for a small dog, a lap dog if you will for her. As we looked at the puppies and older dogs we had a difficult time deciding. Gambit was sitting quietly in the corner as the other puppies yipped and barked as all the strangers coming by to look at them. I don't know if you believe in an emotional bond but there was definitely an immediate connection between Gambit and I. At first I just wanted to pick him up and take a closer look. When I did Gambit did something I will never forget. He held on to my arm with his paws wrapped around -clinging- to me. This connection created a strong bond between us. My wife tells people that I hogged the puppy and wandered off into a corner of the pet store with him so no one else could have a chance to pick him. I have to admit it is true. However, because we came for a different breed of dog we decided to wait until more dogs were brought to the event. So we went to lunch with plans to come back in an hour or so. I told myself that the puppy I liked so much would be long gone by then. Someone would pick him for sure. Who could resist? So with some trepidation I left it up to fate. Well, we ate our lunch and came back to the event in time to see the new dogs arriving at the pet store. We looked them over and considered a couple but I could not get Gambit out of my mind. So, I went to see if he was still in the pen they had for the puppies. Amazingly he was still there. I picked him up and we have been faithful friends every since. Our family loves Gambit and I am thankful for his unconditional love for our family every day. So, when we decided to create an on line business we needed a CEO and Gambit was elected. His bark is worse than his bite! Some of the proceeds from our sales will go the local animal shelter here in Colorado to give others a chance to adopt a pet and maybe they will be as lucky as we were. We are proud contributors to the local Humane Society and the business makes monthly contributions via the PAWS system.
