Talk about Cyber Way

Do not be ashamed to read short novels. They lack the depth and complications of thick books or multi-volume epics, but you can read more of them. You exchange time-consuming immersion for a broader horizon of concepts and stories.

In 1989 CYBER WAY was near-future science fiction. But in 2013, much of its technology is no longer science fiction. The book is still readable, albeit with quaint terminology. Instead of smart phones and tablets, you get spinners. (So-called because their connections spin a web.) Hackers are weavers. A pc is a molly. A cpu is a sphere. Users do not browse, they trawl.

Typical of Alan Dean Foster, the two main characters are likable, though they are somewhat opposite. Detective Lt. Moody comes from Florida. He is single, he is a fan of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and he fishes. His partner, Detective Sgt. Ooljee, lives on the Navajo reservation with a wife and two boys. He is interested in sandpainting. While suffering the arid atmosphere, Lt. Moody pokes fun at Navajo religion. With commendable patience, Sgt. Ooljee tries to teach Moody about that religion and about sandpainting.

Another characteristic of Foster is his focus on story. He has an original concept, and he elucidates it. For this book, the story evolves from a mysterious sandpainting. Its wealthy owner in Florida is murdered, the sandpainting is destroyed, and Lt. Moody is dispatched to the reservation to investigate. Things get strange. Then they get stranger. Eventually they get far out. CYBER WAY is an entertaining--though always serious--merging of mystery, science fantasy, and suspense. The ancient religious art of sandpainting blends with modern computer technology, and if you have an interest in either, the story should please you.

NOTE: This won the Southwest Book Award for Fiction for 1990, and it was the first science fiction novel to do so.

Great classic book. I re-read it every so often and my paperback was falling apart, so bought the hardcover here. Would give five stars except for reference to Navajo thunderbird (no thunderbird in Navajo culture) that bugs me every time I read it.

Read this in the 70’s and was glad to find a copy. Foster had imagined web tech well but not wireless phone. Still very readable.

I really enjoyed this book, could hardly put it down! I haven't read any sci-fi for a while, but this also had elements of a mystery and what greater place than having it on the Navaho Reservation? I wish more writers would place their stories there, having read all of Hillerman also. I highly recommend this book to anyone who would like to take a fictional journey into the future and loves the ambiance and mystery of the desert.

A solid book that touches several generes; mystery, suspense, cyber-punk, and sci-fi. A short read that holds your interest all the way through, with a reasonable ending.
I freely admit, this is one of my favorite science fiction authors. He has such a wonderfully quirky way of looking at current events and translating them into a near future. Then he scares you straight!

First of all, I have a huge problem with the dialogue in this book and I must get that off my chest first. There are a lot of people from other regions of the country who love to make fun of the southern dialect. Mostly however, they are making fun of themselves by not understanding one vital fact of the language down here (Yes, I am southern born and bred and quite happy about that!). All authors who happen across this blog please take note if you plan to ever have a southern speaking character.

THE WORD Y'ALL IS PLURAL FOR YOU!

We would never, ever, in a hundred million years refer to one person as y'all. NEVER! Which is the primary method most people use to make fun of southern speech and you are just doing it completely wrong and sound ignorant. You are quite right that it sounds stupid. The problem is that we don't talk that way - you do.

Okay, back to the book. Reading this now instead of 1990 when it was published made this a very dated book. However, kudos to Mr. Foster for accurately predicting the direction the Internet and social media would progress. I mentioned above that he is wonderful at taking current events and projecting them into the near future - he is truly a master of that. This book takes an impossible murder in the Florida of the future and with an Internet search our detective, Vernon Moody, is led into the wilds of Navajo land. Using the sand paintings of medicine men and the underlying meanings of the various symbols used, Vernon and his Ooljee, his Navajo counterpart are able to enter a sand painting. Apparently, the Navajo were visited by an alien race in the distant past and they invented the Internet. Now someone is determined to harness the full power and is willing to kill anyone who gets in his way.
