Review quote

"As fellow Canadian sf author Robert Charles Wilson points out, Sawyer's fiction possesses a remarkable down-to-earth quality that appeals to readers of all nationalities. Yet Sawyer's third collection of short fiction showcases not only an irresistibly engaging narrative voice but also a gift for confronting thorny philosophical conundrums. . . At every opportunity, Sawyer forces his readers to think while holding their attention with ingenious premises and superlative craftsmanship."

-- Booklist



"At the end of this book, author Robert Sawyer announces not to expect any more short stories any time soon. Not because he doesn't like writing them, many of the seventeen included here were requests for various anthologies, but because novels pay better for the time and effort involved. . . One can only hope he doesn't stay in novel format for too long."

"Sawyer's latest collection is highly entertaining and thought-provoking; the book has something for almost any science-fiction fan. It is a testament to Sawyer's talent that it is not necessary to be a sci-fi fan to enjoy his writing; this is a collection of great stories that just happen to be set in the future."
