Crystal Nights portrays a driven man s moral compromises as he chases an elusive technological breakthrough, while in Steve Fever the technology itself falls victim to its own hype.TAP brings us a new kind of poetry, where a word is more powerful than a thousand images. Singleton shows us a new kind of child, born of human DNA modeled in a quantum computer who, in Oracle, journeys to a parallel world to repay a debt to an intellectual ancestor.Induction chronicles the methods and motives behind humanity s first steps to the stars.

Border Guards reflects on the painful history of a tranquil utopia. And in the final story, Hot Rock, two immortal citizens of the galaxy-spanning Amalgam find that an obscure, sunless world conceals mind-spinning technological marvels, bitter factional struggles, and a many-layered secret history.Greg Egan is the author of seven novels and over fifty short stories. He is a winner of the Hugo Award and the John W. Campbell Memorial Award.
