    This book is full of the sort of mind bending ideas and narrative experiments that I like best in my science fiction Watson is very much writing in a British SF tradition, that of Brian Aldiss and JG Ballard I d say, but his vision is his own Much as I loved the caliber of Watson s conceits a mind meld with an entity within a black hole whose idea of reality is an inversion of our own, a visit to an Earth where impermeable barriers divide various regions along meridional lines, a sojourn This book is full of the sort of mind bending ideas and narrative experiments that I like best in my science fiction Watson is very much writing in a British SF tradition, that of Brian Aldiss and JG Ballard I d say, but his vision is his own Much as I loved the caliber of Watson s conceits a mind meld with an entity within a black hole whose idea of reality is an inversion of...

    Above average collection by an above average writer The title story is a brilliantly simple creation What If a time machine traveled to the past in real time i.e For every one second that we go forward a time machine from...

    As usual with Ian Watson, a very uneven mixture Some of the stories are instantly forgettable, but every now and then he gets it right and produces a truly great line Marina, whose beating heart I held within my hand Thy blood like milk for me has flowed, hot as iron from a furnace

    Almost every tale in this collection has a great science fiction premise but sadlythan half them peter out into pointless piffle There are one or two real gems of stories here though, particularly A Time Span to Conjure With.

    Decidedly unreadable.

    The ideas in the collection are tremendous and even though written in the late 70s still are relevant Watson is not telling great stories though but that maybe due to the short story format I have never been a lover of the short story, particularly as I find it hard not to scan Many have enjo...

    This is some great science fiction, if you can put it in context published in 1979 There s something for everyone here, whether you like tantric psychics exploring black holes, post apocalyptic sun chasers, a world divided by an ali...
