For instance, programming languages and CPU instruction sets are examples of formal rule systems that access and modify data If the rules can simulate Turing s hypothetical computing machine, the rules Turing Tumble Build Marble Powered Computers Turing Tumble is a revolutionary new game where players build marble powered computers to solve logic puzzles It s fun, addicting, and while you re at it, you discover how computers work Introducing Spintronics build mechanical circuits and discover electronics Now accepting pre orders.

  1. I was not a fan of this one It s an interesting experiment, sure, but it didn t add up to a whole hell of a lot On the other hand, I ve never read any Burroughs, so I don t know how well the sections that were supposed to be written by him stacked up to what he actually wrote, but they felt strained, like someone trying too hard to be hip Note The rest of this review has been withdrawn due to the changes in policy and enforcement You can read why I came to this decision here.In the meantime, you [...]


  2. As one who loved Naked Lunch and adores Rudy Rucker s strange imagination, and as one who digs Alan Turing s legacy and William Burroughs indelible stamp on American writing, how could there have been a better book No spoilers, but the premise In this alternative vision, Alan Turing does not commit suicide after his conviction for homosexuality Instead, his government tries to off him, but accidentally kills his pretty young current squeeze Turing s biocomputational studies have led him to a poi [...]


  3. Don t worry, this book isn t about what the author imagined a true to life meeting of Alan Turing and William S Burroughs might have actually have been like although that could have been interesting, I suppose Instead, it s pure craziness It s not to say that the author didn t do his homework and research the two main subjects of this novel He did And he does a good job imitating the style and spirit of Burroughs in letters to Ginsberg and Kerouac that comprise a number of chapters in the book H [...]


  4. I suppose you could call this an inverse alien invasion novel, where the aliens do not come from outer space, but are the result of a scientific experiment by computer genius Alan Turing, who is on the run from the FBI, and invents a kind of symbiotic parasite he puts on his face, and which assumes the facial features of his murdered lover Except the parasite, called a skug, actually merges with Turing s flesh and changes him.I remember reading an anthology called Alien Sex , in which one story [...]


  5. This is not a book for everyone It s a curious mix of fantasy and science, liberally sprinkled with real people and places The novel starts with the botched assassination attempt on the life of Alan Turing Alan, who had finished serving a sentence on a morals charge, fakes his death and escapes to Tangiers, where he runs into William Burroughs and begins an affair.Alan has also invented a symbiotic life form, called a skug Skugs allow their humans to shape shift and give them limited telepathic [...]


  6. A quick read that s pretty enjoyable The story is surprisingly straight forward given the oddities within cryptology electronics genius Alan Turing escapes his government s attempt to assassinate him, in the process creating a sort of symbiotic lifeform that ends up wanting to take over the world The main side effect of infection is the ability to control one s flesh, with the result that Turing, William S Burroughs, and a number of other weird characters flee from Tangier to Los Alamos, NM whil [...]


  7. This book is a wild ride, maybe a little too wild for some I felt it was a lot like a 50s monster horror movie, but seen from the monsters or aliens point of view, and about their horror However, to get to the meat of the story one must accept a lot of odd situations due to the sexual preferences of the main characters Actually, and I live in San Francisco and am pretty much used to people doing just whatever they want to, the percentage of gay people, in the mix of people they come across, thro [...]


  8. Rudy Rucker, you two bit hack Reading this book was painful and a general waste of time and I want to genetically manipulate my genitals so if I were to hit you across the face with them the significance of the act would be indicative at the frustration I felt at trying to endure it to the ending I found the writing to be a chore to read I didn t care for the characters or the plot I should have abandoned it but I m trying very hard not to abandon books.


  9. Touring the burrows of a wonderfully twistable mindThere are those with vibrant imagination and those who go past that to discover whole new spectrums Meet Rudy Rucker I feel like I sneaked onto a rollercoaster that I wasn t really tall enough for Drained and dazed and can t wait to sneak back in line Alan Turing and William Burroughs hold the fate of the world in their hands like a blob of silly putty What could go wrong And speaking of blobs


  10. A fun book Great cast of 1950s characters Turing, Burroughs, Ginsberg, Ulam, Cassady Even Bebe Barron puts in an appearance Kinda And the invented characters fit right in Not the best of Rucker s but a worth while read.


  11. I love silly alternate history books like this straight up out there wild plots, odd illuminate over tones, and wild beatnik prose a very fun summer read I am not sure why Rucker is not a bigger author I love everything I have read by him


  12. What a weird book, so right up my alley Interesting Burroughs lite version of Bill, an Alan Turing of all peope If Burroughs wrote for sctv, this would be a sketch.
