BLind Lake (2003)
Fiction Review by The Gravedigger

BLind Lake (2003) Author Robert Charles WilsonRobert Charles Wilson is one of those authors whose books I'll pick up, regardless what it's about, as I know I'll be in for a good story. And BLIND LAKE does not disappoint.The title refers to a government installation in northern Minnesota where scientists are able, through some quirk in a new type of self-replicating technology, to view the everyday life of an alien culture. The many scientists watch, log, and propose their theories about the creatures, who are termed 'Lobsters' by the outside world.Then, one day, the entire facility and its adjacent town are cut off from the rest of the world, cordoned off by the military. All of their supplies are then delivered by remote control vehicles and there's no communication, so the hundreds of workers and townsfolk can only guess what is happening. But they suspect their 'window' on the aliens has something to do with it. The majority of the story centers around Marguerite Iverson and her soon-to-be stalker ex-husband, Raymond. They have a young daughter named Tess, who is shuffled between them. A news reporter is offered a spare room in her house for the duration and he and Marguerite develop a strong bond. And as this is happening Ray Scutter starts to act irrationally, probably because he has an inkling of what is really going on. He wants to close down the 'window' but Marguerite strongly opposes, telling him that they might not ever get it back. Yet that window may be causing the humans to behave differently-or is it simply because they're all trapped? And one of the aliens they are watching seems to know that he is being watched...As with Wilson's MYSTERIUM and DARWINIA, he has a knack of taking the story of the 'transplanted town' in different, unexpected directions. This is a New York Times notable book and a Hugo Award Finalist.
