Humanity is reaching for the stars, but what must we prove to get there? For 60,000 years, the worlds of the Galactic Milieu have observed Earth, waiting for humanity to evolve sufficiently to join them. Now, humanity is almost ready for Intervention. Across the world, children with unusual mental powers are being born, known as operants. One such is Rogi Remillard, humble book dealer. Helped by an entity he labels the family ghost, Rogi will inadvertently steer his family - and so all mankind - into the future. Rogi's journey starts with his nephew Denis, as he guides his strong metapsychic abilities. The young man's irresponsible father certainly isn't interested, focusing instead on his volatile son Victor. Yet Victor's own emerging powers make him increasingly dangerous. Events take a dark turn when Victor starts consorting with criminals, eventually setting his sights on undermining society itself. Only his family can bring him down, but Denis may be forced to call to the stars for help.… (mehr)

This is a beloved re-read for me. I'd forgotten much of it, but then it's been 20 or so years since I read it last.

Best villain ever created in this series.

And what a great idea as to alien 'invasion' . Humor, suspense, complex plotting and great characters. ( )

I am re-reading May's Pliocene series, starting with this book. It spans decades, often skipping forward months and years at a time, to tell the story of how humans managed to raise themselves to metaphysical operancy, uniting enough minds to officially invite the wider galactic community to accept and help them. I don't think I've read this before, and I'm not sure I'll remember if I go to read it again in 10 years. The main narrative character, Rogatien Remillard, is likable, and his personal story reads as sadly believable as the human race adjusts to being able to read and manipulate minds, move things, and all that other magic-explained-by-technobabble stuff. It occasionally feels outdated, as the history of this Earth departs drastically from ours sometime in the early 80s. She does not have anything like the internet in the 2000s, for example, but there is a lot of SF out there that has been off by more than this.

All in all, not essential for enjoying the rest of the series, but a nice bit of background for it. As I'm starting "Jack the Bodyless" the characters feel more familiar, and Uncle Rogi starts as a very dependable narrator. Though "Intervention" is not very plot-driven, it's an interesting take on how humans might have gone from early 80s technology into the Galactic Milieu. And as per usual with May, the prose is at times hauntingly beautiful. She has scenes all over the world, and occasionally out of it, and every one of them comes to life with detail. She sells the idea of mind-to-mind communication and coercion, from intimately loving to monstrously invasive. If the story itself does not grab you (and again, it is not the most engaging of plots), the way she tells it will. ( )

Evolutionary creativity always renders invalid the “law of large numbers” and acts in an elitist way.
—Erich Jantsch
The Self-Organizing Universe
At the still point of the turning world. Neither flesh nor fleshless;
Neither from nor towards; at the still point, there the dance is,
But neither arrest nor movement. And do not call it fixity,
Where past and future are gathered. Neither movement from nor towards,
Neither ascent nor decline. Except for the point, the still point,
There would be no dance, and there is only the dance.
—T. S. Eliot

The proverbial February thaw did not materialize for the 203rd annual Dartmouth Winter Carnival, and the temperature was around -10° Celsius when Uncle Rogi Remillard emerged from the sanctuary of the Peter Christian Tavern into a blustery, festive night.
