This website is my attempt to convey
the experience of taking the virtual reality tour of Cordwainer
Smiths' universe I've been constructing for the last few years.
Until I can make the actual real-timeVR worlds available either
online or accessible some other way, the best that I can do is
to offer this "simulation of a simulation". Even if
you can't "fly" through these worlds right now, I hope
that my extensive use of screen-capture still-images from the
various virtual worlds will be almost as good. For best results,
be sure to see the tour images full-size by clicking on the small
versions. In a few cases, I've created some non-VR images to
complete the tour.
As you can probably guess, I am one
of Cordwainer Smith's greatest fans. More than anything else,
this website and project are a tribute to this amazing author
and his stories about the future. The real credit for virtually
everything on this website belongs to him!
