Someone else please buy this book! March 14 2007
By N. Maranto - Published on
Format: Paperback
Wow. I bought this book because Ted Chiang mentioned it as an inspiration in an interview. I can certainly see where Chiang got some of his style. This is an amazing book, especially the titular story. Bryant draws beautiful characters who are intimately concerned with pursuing meaning in their own lives, irregardless of the science fiction premise in which they are places. His stories succeed because they are science fiction stories about people. The science seems sound and never forced.

The final story is a poem brilliantly contrasting the lifespan of a human with the infinite expansion and contraction of the universe.

A lovely collection. It's a crime this isn't currently in print.
Classic stories reprinted here -- highly recommended!!!! April 27 2014

Classic stories from a great writer. His production has been limited due to
illness in recent years and I believe that the proceeds from the sales go to
Mr. Bryant. He won the Nebula Award (given for best writing of the year by
the Science Fiction Writers of America) for a couple of these stories.
