"Greg Egan is one of the most fascinating and challenging of modern science fiction writers, and Burnham--an engineer and physicist as well as a science fiction critic--brings exactly the needed combination of skills to bear on his fiction, which can range from the densely theoretical to the intensely humanistic. The book ends with the most cogent and forthcoming interview with Egan that I've seen."
--Gary K. Wolfe, author of Evaporating Genres: Essays on Fantastic Literature
"Burnham's study is interesting because it is written with sympathy for Egan's artistic and intellectual agenda by a critic who is also a working scientist. . . . Burnham's praise for Egan's work is heartfelt without ignoring those areas in which his sheer cold-heartedness makes him problematic."-Times Literary Supplement
