*Starred Review* ...a literary work that resembles both music, in its working out of its theme and variations, and poetry, in its sheer joy in the language of the imagination. VERDICT Fans of Silverberg and lovers of speculative fiction and the creative process should enjoy the rediscovery of a veteran author and the debut of a new, bold sf voice. --Library Journal
