Book Description

Having found his perfect DesignProgramming partner, Wesley Smith is now faced with a choice: the partner, or his honor. The price for one is his DesignProgramming future, the price for the other, the creative future of every child in the Alliance.

The price for not making a choice might well be his life.

Of Mentors and Mimetrons is the second part of a duology. Together with 'NetWalkers: Partners, it comprises the work published as 'NetWalkers.

'NetWalkers is the exciting prequel to the critically acclaimed GroundTies. More than a future history about an era when a universe-spanning computer controls the fate of humanity, it's a deeply human story about the people who control the fate of the computer.

5.0 out of 5 stars What's the Wesser up to now? January 4, 2013
By HN
'Of Mentors and Mimetrons' is the second part of the 'Netwalkers duology. 'Partners' is the first: I strongly advise anyone to start with that book 'NetWalkers: Partners, if you haven't read it yet, as it introduces the primary characters and their relationships.

Of Mentors and Mimetrons is less lighthearted than Partners, and intrigue and office politics play a larger part. Some serious thought about the future of education, the stifling or nurturing of creativity in the school system, is an integral part of this continuation of the story about the lives of the students at Vandereaux Academy.
Wesley Smith's character develops much more depth, as does Jean-Phillippe Beaubien, the man sent back to school to spy on Wesley. The clash of office politics, big business, economics, of efficiency and education, has a large impact on the lives of the students. Can Wesley stay true to the honest ideals inculcated in him by his grandmother Seneca, the original developer of the universal 'Net, and their vision of the future of the 'Net?
Or will he be ground to dust between the powers-that-be, none of whom want the present digital or political landscape to change unless it's to their own advantage?

The 'Netwalkers duo is a prequel to the trilogy of Groundties, Uplink, and Harmonies of the Net, in which an older (and wiser?) Wesley again plays a part. It's not necessary to read either in order to enjoy the other, but 'Netwalkers does add significant depth to several of the characters later encountered again in the trilogy. The trilogy was re-issued as ebooks last year, so if you want to continue reading when you've finished Of Mentors and Mimetrons, I'd say: go for it, on Closed Circle or the Amazon kindle edition.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good storytelling April 24, 2013
This was my first encounter with Jane Fancher's work. Her characters live and breathe and readily pull you in to their world.

5.0 out of 5 stars I'm so glad to see this! September 23, 2013

I've waited a long time for Jane Fancher to resume her story. And now she has! It was worth waiting for. She's also brought back the core trilogy of Netwalkers, and is promising more. This is good solid, science fiction. There are spaceships, alien artifacts, and planetary intrigue. But most of all, there are rich, believable characters, and a sociological examination of what it means to be human. The issues raised in this book about education are essential one for us today. The author makes us think while entertaining us. What more could we ask for?

Real Life has made me dole out the `Netwalkers Duology in little bites as a reward for other things accomplished. Oh, my, but it is worth it! I love the writer's style and deft handling of `dream' sequences... or are they really dreams at all? Finding out is ALL the fun!

'NetWalkers is the kind of book you get when you no longer have ham-handed publishing houses getting in the way of the storytelling. I can't wait to see the 'Author's Cut' of the rest of the series! Jane Fancher writes thought provoking stories with characters who become REAL to you.
