Quantum Void (Quantum, #2)Quantum Void by Douglas Phillips
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

There are only a random few SF books that treat quantum physics with any kind of serious thought, and virtually none of them (other than a very small handful) go out of their way to treat the actual effects as full-on story elements.

This one does and it combines big-to-small, small-to-big higher dimensional math as effects that our society can research and/or exploit with the help of quantum-AI alien species, quantum transposition in space, and other neat goodies.

I think it's wonderfully accessible Hard-SF and I love how wild the effects can get. No, this isn't on par with The Three-Body Problem or its sequels, but we're in the same ballpark.

Fascinating reading.
