The Smoke RingDownloadable Audiobook - 2007
In the free-fall environment of the Smoke Ring, the descendants of the crew of the Discipline no longer remembered their Earth roots-or the existence of sharls Davis Kendy, the computer-program despot of the ship. Until Kendy initiated contact once more. Fourteen years later, only Jeffer, the Citizens Tree Scientist, knew that Kendy was still watching-and waiting. Then the Citizens Tree people rescued a family of loggers and learned for the first time of the Admiralty, a large society living in free fall amid the floating debris called the Clump. And it was likely that the Admiralty had maintained, intact, Dicipline's original computer library. Exploration was a temptation neither Jeffer nor Kendy could resist, and neither citizens Tree nor Sharls Davis Kendy would ever be the same again.
