Summary

The artificial intelligence, Maitreya, first came into being 150,000 years ago. Over the millennia, it has spread Terran-based life, humanity, and its avatars throughout an empty galaxy, creating the New Integral Society. Now, a supernova threatens one of Maitreya's experimental worlds, Solandaria - the only such world that harbors the Sonoran desert toad and its powerful 5-MeO-DMT containing venom, the most profound entheogen ever discovered.

Things are not what they seem, however, for someone is interfering with Maitreya's experiment, violating the rules of the NIS. An autonomous avatar, Hydar Zor Nablisk, risks everything for the sake of the inhabitants of Solandaria by creating a duplicate of the director of the recently revived Burning Man celebration, Miranda Ash Doran, stranding her on Black Rock City Station. Maitreya sends its personal avatar, Theo, to investigate, and the game is on.

The Solandarian Game is the latest psy-fi epic by Martin W. Ball, author of Beyond Azara and the Tales of Aurduin series. Combining speculative fiction, non-dual philosophy, entheogenic experience, and provocative storytelling, The Solandarian Game presents a fascinating post-singularity future for humanity.

A fascinating entheogenic future

Interesting vision of an entheogenic future. What would a technological galactic society look like, if entheogens were ubiquitous?

This was more akin to reading a student’s notes from a sci-fi writer’s conference.

Overflowing with buzz words and overused phrases, I lost track of any plot early on. I cannot recommend this book to anyone.
