it was amazing
Read in March, 2010

Most of the stories are excellent. Three of them are less interesting to me: Our Lady of Chernobyl, Chaff, and Transition Dreams. Our Lady of Chernobyl, like Silver Fire, and to a lesser degree, The Plank Dive, deal with obscurantism and ignorance as constrasted to the light of science. It seems to me that Egan dispairs too much in that. Or he was expecting way more than possible from humanity.
