This book contains a collection of short science fiction stories by Greg Egan. It's the first time I've read a book of short sci-fi stories and each one has had a separate unique idea. Many authors will release a book of short stories and have just 2 or 3 themes running through the book and have every story be of one of the main themes, such books are often very entertaining and worth the purchase price. But this book has 18 stories that are all separate and each has at least one significant idea or concept. Many of the concepts expressed in the book can only be described as mind-boggling in the truest sense of the word!

Greg Egan's work is comparable in many ways to that of Phillip K. Dick.

This book is a must read.
