Science fiction writer and futurist Robert J. Sawyer is one of only seven writers in history—and the only Canadian—to win all three of the world’s top Science Fiction awards for best novel of the year: the Hugo, the Nebula and the John W. Campbell Memorial Award. 

 

In Wonder , the final chapter in his WWW Trilogy, the advent of Webmind—a vast consciousness that spontaneously emerged from the infrastructure of the World Wide Web—is changing everything. From curing cancer to easing international tensions, Webmind seems a boon to humanity. But Colonel Peyton Hume, the Pentagon’s top expert on artificial intelligence, is convinced Webmind is a threat. Can this new world of wonder survive—or will everything, Webmind included, come crashing down?
