List Of Uplift Universe Planets

The Uplift Universe is a fictional universe created by science fiction writer David Brin. A central feature in this universe is the process of biological uplift.

His books which take place in this universe:

  • Sundiver (1980)
  • Startide Rising (1983) - Nebula Award winner, 1983; Hugo and Locus Awards winner, 1984
  • The Uplift War (1987) - Nebula Nominee, 1987; Hugo and Locus Awards winner, 1988
  • The Uplift Trilogy (sometimes called the Uplift Storm trilogy):
    • Brightness Reef (1995) - Hugo and Locus Awards nominee, 1996
    • Infinity's Shore (1996)
    • Heaven's Reach (1998)

There is also a short story "Aficionado" (originally titled "Life in the Extreme"), published in 1998, which serves as a prequel to the series as a whole (it also serves as a part of Existence, an unrelated work by Brin), and a novella Temptation published in 1999 in Far Horizons, which follows on from Heaven's Reach. Brin also wrote Contacting Aliens: An Illustrated Guide To David Brin's Uplift Universe which is a guidebook about the background of the series.

At least one more Uplift book is planned by the author, as Brin has stated that Temptation "will be a core element of the next Uplift novel... and answers several unresolved riddles left over from Heaven's Reach."

GURPS Uplift is a sourcebook for a science fiction themed role-playing game based on the Uplift Universe. It includes a few stories that happen in Jijo after the end of Heaven's Reach.

Famous quotes containing the words list of, planets, universe, uplift and/or list:

    Thirty—the promise of a decade of loneliness, a thinning list of single men to know, a thinning brief-case of enthusiasm, thinning hair.
    F. Scott Fitzgerald (1896–1940)

    Perhaps when distant people on other planets pick up some wave-length of ours all they hear is a continuous scream.
    Iris Murdoch (b. 1919)

    He knows the universe and does not know himself.
    Jean De La Fontaine (1621–1695)

    Religious faith is a most filling vapor.
    It swirls occluded in us under tight
    Compression to uplift us out of weight....
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)

    We saw the machinery where murderers are now executed. Seven have been executed. The plan is better than the old one. It is quietly done. Only a few, at the most about thirty or forty, can witness [an execution]. It excites nobody outside of the list permitted to attend. I think the time for capital punishment has passed. I would abolish it. But while it lasts this is the best mode.
    Rutherford Birchard Hayes (1822–1893)
