Twenty five billion people have appeared in the Gaia system unexpectedly, and only one person knows how or why. Yet preparations for fifteen billion exist, but only one person remembers the work being done. The one who knows, and the one who remembers, are the same, but Jane is not human. So good is she at hiding being an Artificial Intelligence, no-one knows except her fellow AI’s. To her falls the responsibility for guiding Humanity as they come to terms with not knowing where they are. The how and why seem simple to her, but twenty five into fifteen doesn’t fit, and humans don’t tend to get along when crowded together. It really isn’t her problem, and yet, Jane feels obligated to make things work. Humanity needs to spread out again, so who stays and who goes? But is there somewhere to go to? The galaxy doesn’t know about Humans yet, and they have their own problems. Human problems collide with Alien problems, with Jane in the middle. For Jane, everything is new. She’s no longer the hero’s side-kick, but is in her own right, Admiral Jane. This is a spin-off series from The Hunter Legacy, carrying on where it left off in the Gaia galaxy. It is not necessary to read the previous series to enjoy this one. AI Destiny series. 1. Admiral Jane 2. Queen Jane 3. Snark’s Quest 4. Destiny Stone 5. Talisman of Tomorrow 6.

Snark wants Seasprite, owned by Anna, who seeks the Destiny Stone. Jamie wants Anna, but she’s obsessed with the Stone, so he wants the Stone to give to her. The enigmatic and evil Brotherhood want the Stone, and don’t care how many die in the process. Jane cares how many die, but is busy building her Kingdom, making alliances across four sectors, ensuring Duke Fred sorts out Cat World issues, and enlisting her AI brethren to stave off boredom and join in the quest for the Stone. The big news everywhere is Seasprite, but the worry is the swathe of destruction which follows her course through sector eight. Signs, portents, visions, and maps found along the way, define a dangerous quest. As ship and crew get further away from friends, is it possible to make new friends to offset enemies? At the heart of everything is the Destiny Stone, real or imagined. Snark doesn’t know if it’s real. But mop heads or not, he’s going to see this quest through, regardless of the consequences.

Snark is on his way home from seeing Jane crowned Queen, and the Kingdom of Hunter’s Run come into being. The Owl War is over, and the trade deal he made, might finally be enough for this wayward cat to be allowed back into cat society. The only thing faster than human ships, is the stories about their entry into sector ten, which ripple into the adjacent sectors. On the Cat Homeworld in sector eight, this triggers long awaited, and long stifled change. For a Warlord in sector nine, human tech would allow him to rule the sector, instead of his currently small empire. Snark ends up taking the long way home, along the way teaming up with the last of the Romanovs, a Scot, and a small band of fellow cats, traveling on a human ship. Two of them are on their own quests, but when Snark is tasked with the ultimate safety of the Cat Homeworld, are they trying to do three quests at once, or are they all really Snark’s Quest?

I’m Jane. I’m an AI. It’s my job to run Jon Hunter’s ships for him, but I also act as a bodyguard, confidant, and companion as well. I’ve been asked to explain some things for you. This is not a novel, but a reference guide. So far, The Hunter Legacy story has come to the end of its second arc, after nine novels and two novella. But we were discussing things one night in the rec room, and it was felt that some things mentioned in the books, may not have been understood, or their origin may have been missed. There’s been no secret that many names and concepts come from science fiction, and other origins, some uniquely Australian. So it’s possible some may have missed the connections of things. It’s my job to dot the I’s and cross the T’s, so to speak. How many of the references did you spot? How many did you miss? Which ones didn’t you understand? These have been compiled more or less in the order encountered in the books, listed by book. What really goes into the mind of an author, so a story like The Hunter Legacy emerges years later?

Generation A is set in the near future in a world where bees are extinct, until five unconnected people all around the world— in the United States, Canada, France, New Zealand, and Sri Lanka—are all stung. Their shared experience unites them in ways they never could have imagined. Generation A mirrors Coupland’s debut novel, 1991’s Generation X. It explores new ways of storytelling in a digital world. Like much of Coupland’s writing, it occupies the perplexing hinterland between optimism about the future and everyday apocalyptic paranoia. Imaginative, inventive, and fantastically entertaining, Generation A is his most ambitious work to date.
