阿拉斯泰尔·雷诺兹(Alastair Reynolds)名言

I've always been skeptical of the idea that sentience is going to be an exclusively human attribute.

我一直对有知觉将成为人类特有属性的观点持怀疑态度。

I would much rather we concentrated on the immediate, still-potent dangers, such as nuclear weapons, runaway climate change, and so on. Sort those out, then worry about Hal 9000.

我宁愿我们把注意力集中在眼前的,仍然是潜在的危险上,比如核武器,失控的气候变化,等等。把这些整理好,然后再担心。

If you do a certain amount of work every day, it will eventually become a novel.

如果你每天做一定量的工作,它最终会成为一部小说。

I don't like a lot of what's published as hard SF. Much of it is right-wing, reactionary crap.

我不喜欢很多硬科幻小说。很多都是右翼的,反动的废话。

As an SF writer, you've got the infinite toolkit of the writer at your disposal.

The one thing that really terrifies me is we're going to get a signal from space that clears it all up: 'OK, this is how the universe works, guys.'

有一件事真的让我害怕,那就是我们将从太空中得到一个信号,把一切都清除掉:“好吧,这就是宇宙的运作方式,伙计们。”

As a kid, I'd buy novels with these magnificent Chris Fosse covers which showed an enormous contraption hovering over a planet, and you'd always think 'Where's that going to come in?' And it never did! It was always slightly disappointing when the contents of a book never lived up to the cover.

当我还是个孩子的时候,我会买一些有着克里斯·福斯(Chris Fosse)华丽封面的小说,里面展示了一个巨大的玩意儿盘旋在一个星球上,而你总是会想‘那玩意儿会从哪里来?’但从来没有!当一本书的内容与封面不符时,总是有点令人失望。

I just start writing, and in the process, one hopefully comes up with ideas and solutions and explores all the little nooks and crannies.

我刚开始写作,在这个过程中,我希望能想出一些想法和解决办法,并探索所有的小角落和缝隙。
