Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
In this provocative, entertaining collection of nine reprints, Williams (Implied Spaces) brings together tales of the College of Mystery as well as other explorations of the gray region where psyche and technology meet. Standouts include the Nebula-winning “Daddy's World,” in which a young boy finds himself trapped in a nightmare not of his making; “The Last Ride of German Freddie,” an alternate history in which Friedrich Nietzsche meets Wyatt Earp; “Incarnation Day,” wherein humanity raises its children as computer programs; and the title story, another Nebula winner, about a utopian society's birth and psychological effects. Coupled with extensive notes from the author, these stories invite readers to share and enjoy Williams's extensive knowledge of history, psychology, and culture. (May)
