9780252038419: Greg Egan (Modern Masters of Science Fiction)
Críticas:

"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"

Reseña del editor:

Greg Egan (1961- ) publishes works that challenge readers with rigorous, deeply-informed scientific speculation. He unapologetically delves into mathematics, physics, and other disciplines in his prose, putting him in the vanguard of the hard science fiction renaissance of the 1990s. A working physicist and engineer, Karen Burnham is uniquely positioned to provide an in-depth study of Egan's science-heavy oeuvre. Her survey of the author's career covers novels like "Permutation City" and "Schild's Ladder "and the Hugo Award-winning novella "Oceanic," analyzing how Egan used cutting-edge scientific theory to explore ethical questions and the nature of humanity. As Burnham shows, Egan's collected works constitute a bold artistic statement: that narratives of science are equal to those of poetry and drama, and that science holds a place in the human condition as exalted as religion or art. The volume includes a rare interview with the famously press-shy Egan covering his works, themes, intellectual interests, and thought processes.
