Format: Hardcover
The Robot's Twilight Companion is a brilliant compendium of stories by one of the best and the brightest (not to mention criminally underappreciated) young writers in America. Read it and stretch your mind so far out of shape you will never see the world in the same way again. If you like Philip K. Dick, Stanislaw Lem, or even William Faulkner, Tony Daniel's books belong on your shelves -- and in your head! Make The Robot's Twilight Companion your companion and I guarantee it will be the start of a beautiful relationship.

This is some of the best science fiction I have ever read. Tony Daniel's books are right up there with sci-fi greats like Asimov, Zelazny, Heinlein, and Bradbury. In fact, I haven't enjoyed anything this much since I first read the Amber series by Roger Zelazny.

Format: Hardcover
A good book. This collection averages 3.50 which is really nicely done for a first batch, anchored by the excellent 'A Dry, Quiet War' about a very strange post-war homecoming from his Metaplanetary setting. A few stories from that setting, as well as a couple in the middle that tend to the supernatural, and even a science fiction spy story, in Prague.
