Paul Di Filippo reviewed the book for Locus Online: “Some three dozen stories, all of them cohering into a consistent organic tapestry whose main threads are: derangement, deracination, ambition, art, war, the mediasphere, politics, the inevitably subjective pursuit of knowledge, and, most centrally, the essential stonewall limits of the universe and humanity’s reach therein.”
