The descendants of centuries of scientific, cultural and physical development divide into three: fleshers - true Homo sapiens; Gleisner robots - embodying human minds within machines that interact with the physical world; and polises - supercomputers teeming with intelligent software, containing the direct copies of billions of human personalities now existing only in the virtual reality of the polis.
Diaspora is the story of Yatima - a polis being created from random mutations of the Konishi polis base mind seed - and of humankind. Of an astrophysical accident that spurs the thousandfold cloning of the polises. Of the discovery of an alien race and of a kink in time and space that means humanity - whatever form it takes - will never again be threatened by acts of God.
