EXISTENCE
David Brin takes on the rapidly accelerating rate of change in technology in a very human way.
Telepresence. The neural link world wide web. Into the maelstrom of world-wide shared experience drops a game-changer. An alien artifact is plucked from Earth's orbit; an artifact that wants to communicate. News leaks out fast, and the world reacts as it always does: with fear and hope and selfishness and love and violence.

“No one ever imagined that five swashbuckling pirates would settle in our proper little southern community. But they did.”
When pirates move in next door, life on the farm is bound to get interesting. But will the unadventurous Sanders family be able to handle the pirates’ bad manners, ghastly grub, and outrageous antics? Or will they learn the importance of loving one’s neighbor and help the graceless pirates find their “land legs”?
