By Robert Charles Wilson

Blind Lake (titre unique : Blind Lake) est un roman de Robert Charles Wilson publié en 2003. Cet ouvrage a été nommé pour le prix Hugo du meilleur roman 2004.

Grâce à une toute nouvelle technologie fondée sur l'utilisation d'ordinateurs quantiques, des scientifiques américains ont réussi à décupler les capacités d'observation de leur télescope spatial. Cette technologie, baptisée l'œil, a été utilisée pour construire deux websites d'observation, l'un à Crossbank et l'autre à Blind Lake, grâce auxquels ils observent en grandeur nature los angeles vie se déroulant sur des planètes lointaines.

Sur le website de Blind Lake, l'observation est centrée sur un sujet, appelé « le Homard » en raison de sa ressemblance avec ces créatures, qui vit dans une cité de niveau pré-industriel situé à fifty one années-lumière. Mais, celui-ci entame alors un pèlerinage probablement deadly, et l'armée boucle Blind Lake. Il semble que ces ordinateurs quantiques dont les scientifiques ne comprennent pas vraiment le fonctionnement aient accédé à une semi-vie et qu'ils menacent d'échapper à tout contrôle. D'ores et déjà l'accès au website de Crossbank a été, pour une raison inconnue, bloqué, puis détruit.
