As of this review I ve read six books by Larry Niven some coauthored by his freuent collaborator Jerry Pournelle That s a hefty number for any single author on my bookshelf I ve another three books by him on my to read shelf but part of me wonders why my average rating is just over 2 stars and I ve never made any secret of the fact that I ve found most of his books too flimsy and poorly written to be great But Niven despite all his flaws as a writer remains a singularly remarkable source of interesting ideas Ringworld is just one of themFlash Crowd is another example of a good idea It s Niven s attempt to methodically examine how long distance teleportation would change society He uses the conceit of a journalist Barry Jerryberry Jansen working to uncover how the transit booths work as part of a larger piece on the effects of transit booths on rioting Niven s premise is that the ability to cross the country in a matter of minutes allows for near instantaneous riots or even a semi permanent itinerant riot It s a chilling vision of something that seems highly unlikely yet plausible given the right technology at the right timeJerryberry is working under a time limit He literally has hours until an interview that will either absolve him for his role in starting a riot or pinion him as the man who let it happen This is good for dramatic tension but it s also a commentary on the fast paced nature of life with teleportation We don t have teleportation yet but I think the metaphor holds given our near instantaneous access to information Niven touches on the double edged sword of instant media here and while the technology references and the ideas are somewhat stale the overall commentary remains incisiveThis is the type of story that really only works as a short piece of fiction As far as stories go it shouldn t work but does it has very little in the way of plot and an embarrassing amount of exposition This is uite literally Niven rapping a thought experiment in the form of a novella but that s OK Because again the ideas are just so interesting and thought provoking that one can ignore the impoverished hastily erected structure surrounding themOf all the Niven works I ve read so far this is probably one of my favourites It s short accessible and fascinating So if you have the time to read about how teleportation might disrupt and innovate Flash Crowd is worth a look Just don t expect a symphony of words to wash over you in the processRead as part of The Mammoth Book of Short Science Fiction Novels
