Major Sci-Fi Aug. 20 2005
By C. DIMOND - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Decoding the puzzle of language is inherently part of the fun of reading a Terry Bisson story, which often relies on adept liguistic manipulation to convey ideas as well as to establish mood. When he sets out to write a story, TB is always clear in his own mind what he is going to get said. Before the end of the story you realize that he's also a good storyteller with a totally original mind.

Greetings: & Other Stories finds this skilled veteran at the peak of his strength working in the medium of the literary short story. Serious, totally honest, deeply felt. An excellent read.

10 shorts represent the best of Bisson's other times and worlds April 19 2006
By D. Donovan, Editor/Sr. Reviewer - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Terry Bisson's GREETINGS & OTHER STORIES selects ten satiric short stories to represent the best of Bisson's explorations into other times and worlds. There's always a moral and ethical edge to his explorations - and always an assembly of diverse, unpredictable plots and different settings to keep readers on their toes. From an online girl who was killed but is alive in cyberspace to a different kind of terrorist threat, GREETINGS AND OTHER STORIES are steeped in strong characterization and solid science.
