And there are no formulae in this one, unlike the Orthogonal books. This often makes for chillingly “reasonable” responses to the Big Questions humanity has been asking itself for millennia.

Nov 29, Mr Duck rated it really liked it. Pe fundalul acestor evenimente, Nick, un soi de detectiv particular, este insarcinat cu gasiea unei femei cu functii cerebrale reduse care dispare misterios dintr-un sanatoriu.

I have always been amazed at Neal Stephenson for being able to write Snowcrash and The Diamond Age in and respectively. See what’s been added to the collection in the current 1 2 3 4 5 6 weeks months years. Readers who can experience the bizarre consequences of Egan’s interpretation of quantum physics as magic – and can flow with the magic making its rules as it goes along – will find a unique and incredible landscape.

Then the corpse can go into orbit—preferably around the sun. At times quite in depth with his knowledge of the scientific topic but it challenges the readers ideas and perceptions which I love about Scifi.


Published December 1st by HarperPrism first published April 17th Greg Egan specialises in hard science fiction stories with mathematical and quantum ontology themes, including the nature of consciousness. It’s a subtle touch. To view it, click here.

This one would probably be the most likely pick to adapt into a film. Greg Egan’s novels, and other two short story collections Luminous and Oceanicare now going to the top of my BookDepository wishlist.

All As good sci-fi should, ‘Quarantine’ takes an existing area of scientific study, asks the reader to accept a key concession, and turns the dial up to I think – in all my vast understanding of the world – that one of the things that really sets Greg Egan apart is his willingness to drive real physics to its ruthless end.

Unlike most of his novels, except for the very first story in the collection, the science isn’t particularly hard. This book was extremely interesting and had an interesting plot. There certainly is a plot, a good one, and the book get off to a axiojatico start, but begins to lose steam towards the end.

In general, I think he succeeds at this, though at the expense of in-depth characterization.

Greg Egan is not afraid to use fiction to explore real science, physics, quantum mechanics, and deep philosophy. This could be because the tone of his writing is matter-of-fact, which others might find dry, but which helped me go along with Egan’s thought experiment, pun intended.


Amazing collection of short stories. Mar 20, Daniel Cohen rated it it was amazing. Imagine, 18 stories with ideas that would still be regarded as science fiction! Lists with This Book. The setting, characters, ideas, and writing in Anathem were far more satisfying than this book. Paperbackpages.

Axiomatic by Greg Egan

Axiomatic is not perfect, there are a few cases where the characters seem to suddenly realise the predicament they are in often quite a stretch. The narrator of the stories is not usually the person I think would be the most interesting, for example, but the narrator is always axiomatido and believable. My first reading of anything by Egan.

For those who want to think deeply about that scenario, this would be a good read. One could describe Egan as one who axiomtaico fiction for scientists to read. Okay, let’s back up.
