You have to pay attention to this one. Virtual Quantum Collapse by Lutz Barz is definitely not a quick read. And, as the name suggests, it is not a particularly easy read, especially for those not up on their quantum physics. But with its exciting and gifted three main characters/agents and their potentially universe-saving mission, Virtual Quantum Collapse is a very satisfying and exciting hard science fiction novel in the vein of works by authors like Neil Stephenson. If you love his works, you will like Lutz Barz. I am not a scientist nor do I have a scientific educational background. I am simply a huge science fiction fan who appreciates when the science and ideas are accurate, challenging, exciting, and very well written. You get all of that in Virtual Quantum Collapse and more.
Hard science fiction books like Virtual Quantum Collapse usually start out very slowly. You have to set things up so that the reader can appreciate the fictional world you have created for them. Lutz Barz does this beautifully at the beginning of Virtual Quantum Collapse, and he does it well. We start at Andromeda Station Three and this is a mission briefing. A briefing for a mission bigger than any I can recall in any novel I have read so far. This introduces us to some of the most capable agents in the history of science fiction and the fact that all three are women added tremendously to the desire to see what happens next. The more you read, the more the human element and consequences come into play as the stakes start rising. A pretty good formula for success. A great work, all in all.
