Editorial Reviews

Review

Whether trolling cyberspace, as in 'Solip:System,' or delving into the landscapes of meat, as in 'Erogenoscape,' Williams exhibits cunning, dexterity, and tenaciousness. I was particularly enchanted by one of the two original stories herin, 'The Bad Twin,' a twisted time-travel caper that nearly approaches David Gerrold's The Man Who Folded Himself (1973). With a forward by our own Gardner Dozois and the boldly sensual inkings by Omar Rayyan, this volume merits your attention. --Paul Di Filippo, Asimov's SF Magazine, Feb. 1998

3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Peter D. Tillman VINE VOICE on January 16, 2001
Format: Hardcover
______________________________________________
This excellent collection features "Prayers on the Wind", WJW's best story to date,and lots more Good Stuff. As always, NESFA books are a pleasure to read & hold: smooth, creamy paper, solid, full-cloth bindings and exceptional cover & interior art, here by Omar Rayyan. Recommended.

Contents:

Introduction by Gardner Dozois. Excellent.

Solip:System (direct sequel to Hardwired). Kinda grim. My rating: B+;
yours may be higher, if you like gritty.

Broadway Johnny: a "deeply unserious" story of magic and mayhem
in an alternate 1930s China. "A-"

Woundhealer: sword-and-sorcery in Saberhagen's "Swords"
universe
-- not for me.

The Bad Twin (never before published). A rousing time-travel tale
with "as many paradoxes as I could devise" -- "A".

Red Elvis: like it says, from the "Alternate Rebels" anthology. "A-" or
"B+" -- I didn't reread it. So sue me.

Prayers on the Wind (Nebula Award nominee): A+ -- featuring the
Big Library, Buddhism & Bad aliens -- not to be missed.
G00gle for my full review.

Bag Lady (never before published). The prototype Wild Cards story
and Modular Man's ('New Prometheus, my ass') debut, later
reworked into "Unto the Sixth Generation." Silly & fun, "A-".

Erogenoscape: Babette's new body -- sex, surgery, prurience &
paranoia. "A/A-"

Foreign Devils (Sidewise Award winner). Wells' Martians invade
China, encounter Righteous Harmony Fists. "A-"; or "A" for alt-hist
buffs. Hmm, you couldn't really call this alternate-history -- maybe
'shared-world with a dead author'?
