    Luminous PDF/EPUB ¸ é PDF/EPUB cloudunblock.co luminous pdf, Luminous EpubA great collection of short sci fi stories to start the year More science driven than most and it's exactly what I love about the author So happy I discovered his writing It's remarkable the anticipation prowess Egan had since the 90s and so on and how much of what he conjured seems to come true in the tech developments of todayWhat I liked most the disruptive hypnotic poetry of his images The way the humans he paints do not become less tribal as they become enlightened Our Lady of Chernobyl was my favorite story of this cycle Very poeticWhat I have mixed feelings about in every story at some overwhelming point a woman has to cry Who I'd recommend it to everyon

    Luminous PDF/EPUB ¸ é PDF/EPUB cloudunblock.co luminous pdf, Luminous EpubThis is not uite as good as Axiomatic his other short story collection I've read Some of the stories either didn't feature very interesting ideas or had unmemorable protagonists Interestingly several of these stories introduce ideas he would later reuse in his novels eg Luminous' idea of battling universal physicalmathematical systems and The Planck Dive's physics technobabble reintroduced in Schild's Ladder Transition Dreams' Gleisner robots and The Planck Dive's polises would s

    Luminous PDF/EPUB ¸ é PDF/EPUB cloudunblock.co luminous pdf, Luminous EpubThis is a much weaker book than Diaspora and with these stories I unfortunately found myself becoming all too aware of the shortcomings in that novel that I had previously been willing to overlook because of the sheer giddy weirdness of that particular post human tale I fear my review is going to come off as meaner than I intend but Luminous somewhat evoked a feeling of being trapped in a room with a person who just mainlined a bunch of PBS science specialsDawkins books and thinks that spouting a summary of Penrose's Twistor theory is a substitute for good conversation Egan's strategy with a lot of these stories seemed to be to either throw a bunch of high concept science fictio

    Luminous PDF/EPUB ¸ é PDF/EPUB cloudunblock.co luminous pdf, Luminous EpubOverall This story collection actually got better when I tried to write up my reviews for each story because I started to take the time to think through how the different parts played into each story's narrative I'm not saying that you need to do some sort of post modern literary criticism to understand this book but taking a moment to reflect on what each story is trying to tell you does give you a richer appreciation for the structure and implicationsInitially I was disappointed because these stories seemed pretty dated and bland compared to those in Axiomatic which has many stories that I still think about all the time eg Unstable Orbits in the Space Of Lies and Seeing To be honest this book is not nearly as world shatteringly good as Axiomatic but the stories here have much subtle points to make and I'm c

    Luminous PDF/EPUB ¸ é PDF/EPUB cloudunblock.co luminous pdf, Luminous EpubA lot weaker that Axiomatic his somewhat earlier short story collection though I'm struggling to say why Too many first person narrators? Stories too similar in their cadence if not uiet in subject matter? Nothing as mindblowing as Cutie? An almost perceptive lack of interesting interhuman in a very broad sense of human relations?I also do not uiet remember thinking oh I've seen this is a novel of his too with so many of the stories in Axiomatic Is this on purpose? Or by chance? Mind me this is not a negative point not at all just an interesting oneAnyway an interesting collection if you like me want to read everything by Egan If you are just starting out head over to Axiomatic that is just amazing and mindblowing

    Luminous PDF/EPUB ¸ é PDF/EPUB cloudunblock.co luminous pdf, Luminous EpubI've read a Czech language edition from the local library Translation is uite ok but it still makes any usual Egan's terminology sound a bit too weird for me No need to even point out that he's definitely not a very poetic writer in the first place and there's definitely no improvement he's probably the most purposeful clinically descriptive writer I'm able to enjoy and he's got some far future characters who still believe in Big Crunch which seems now pretty improbable but I think is ok in 1995 sci fi He's also got some really amazing ideas and arguments that actually make sense and he's not afraid of making black hole physics metaphors although that particular story felt a bit too one sided In other words there are some re

    Luminous PDF/EPUB ¸ é PDF/EPUB cloudunblock.co luminous pdf, Luminous EpubGreg Egan gets it He understands how things work — science mathematics the human brain — and uses that understanding to create mind blowing but completely plausible scenarios of how they could work Luminous is a uneven collection than Axiomatic but his best stories are ridiculously brilliant
