A for Andromeda Fred Hoyle : DOC

Fred Hoyle

Although published in 1962, I first heard of this novel only a few years ago and thought I would like to try it at some point. The author, astronomer Fred Hoyle, was reasonably well known in the UK in his day, unusually so for a scientist.

For those unfamiliar with the story, this is an “alien contact” novel, but rather than the foetus-like creatures of the X-Files, in this scenario scientists pick up a signal on a radio telescope, identified as having originated from the direction of the Andromeda constellation. Once deciphered, the signal is revealed as providing instructions for advanced computer technology (at least, more advanced than humanity had in 1962).

Hoyle set the novel a few years into the future, which for him meant the late sixties. He envisaged a world in which the Western democracies were threatened by enemies with superior missile/rocket technology. Looking back this seems an unlikely scenario, but the book was written when the USSR was ahead in the Space Race, so it probably didn’t seem outlandish at the time. Anyway, it lends a degree of plausibility to when, in the novel, the NATO countries decide to build the computer, desperate as they are to catch up with their rivals. Of course, this being a sci-fi novel we know the intentions of the aliens are not as altruistic as they appear, and the reader is left mentally rehearsing a shout of “IT’S A TRAP!”

Although this is classed as sci-fi, and I’ve described it as such, hardcore sci-fi fans might not find it to their taste. Most of the action takes place within a military base in the Scottish Highlands, where the Andromedan machine is being constructed, and the plot might be summarised as one in which a Cassandra-type scientist tries to warn the military/industrial complex about the dangers of their course of action. Parts of the book are a little dated now. The 1960s idea of future computer technology is laughable today (I was reminded of the ship’s computer in the original Star Trek series). The story does feature female scientists, but this is a long time before “Me Too” and the younger female characters are treated in a very condescending way. They do though have the traditional redress of giving a slap to the face. There’s a minor plotline involving a romance between two of the characters, and the dialogue between them came over as clumsy and even cringeworthy.

I’ve made the novel sound unattractive, but despite what I’ve said, I found it reasonably diverting. I thought the premise was excellent, it’s an interesting period piece, and of course with Fred Hoyle as the author there’s a really strong scientific base to the story. The storyline wasn’t edge of the seat stuff but there was enough of a “thriller” aspect to keep me interested. I’ve also finally satisfied my long-standing curiosity about it.

hoyle set the novel a few years into the future, which for him meant the late sixties. he envisaged a world in which the western democracies were threatened by enemies with superior missile/rocket technology. looking back this seems an unlikely scenario, but the book was written when the ussr was ahead in the space race, so it probably didn’t seem outlandish at the time. anyway, it lends a degree of plausibility to when, in the novel, the nato countries decide to build the computer, desperate as they are to catch up with their rivals. of course, this being a sci-fi novel we know the intentions of the aliens are not as altruistic as they appear, and the reader is left mentally rehearsing a shout of “it’s a trap!”

although this is classed as sci-fi, and i’ve described it as such, hardcore sci-fi fans might not find it to their taste. most of the action takes place within a military base in the scottish highlands, where the andromedan machine is being constructed, and the plot might be summarised as one in which a cassandra-type scientist tries to warn the military/industrial complex about the dangers of their course of action. parts of the book are a little dated now. the 1960s idea of future computer technology is laughable today (i was reminded of the ship’s computer in the original star trek series). the story does feature female scientists, but this is a long time before “me too” and the younger female characters are treated in a very condescending way. they do though have the traditional redress of giving a slap to the face. there’s a minor plotline involving a romance between two of the characters, and the dialogue between them came over as clumsy and even cringeworthy.

i’ve made the novel sound unattractive, but despite what i’ve said, i found it reasonably diverting. i thought the premise was excellent, it’s an interesting period piece, and of course with fred hoyle as the author there’s a really strong scientific base to the story. the storyline wasn’t edge of the seat stuff but there was enough of a “thriller” aspect to keep me interested. i’ve also finally satisfied my long-standing curiosity about it.

a brilliant, but i would want a 15" laptop at least, bit expensive compared to other laptops available. Responsibility: we accept personal accountability for 176 the work we do. The major religion of east nusa tenggara are christian, 176 with.
