Praise for Incandescence: This strange, enthralling work is a major achievement from Australia's top sci-fi writer and will be discussed and dissected for quite some time." [The Sydney Morning Herald]; Egan paints an entertaining and intriguing tale of different cultures and technologies. [Good Reading] Quest story meets scientific method, with the true stars the sexy ideas. Egan writes the most intellectual fiction in Australia. [The Sunday Age] Greg Egan is the eponymous incandescent Aussie hard SF author... a tour-de-force of scientific extrapolation. [Antipodean]; Greg Egan has established a well-deserved reputation as one of the foremost practitioners of hard science fiction. [Andromeda]
From the electronic frontier to the wilder shores of hard physics, Greg Egan's new collection is powerful, shocking and unmissable!

One of the best anthologies in science fiction
on 14 November 2013 - Published on Amazon.com
Diverse and fascinating ideas and not a bad story in the collection (I will normally skip or skim several of the stories in an anthology like this, but not this one). Of course, like many compilations of short stories, some of the ideas are just off the wall (e.g., Dark Integers), but still an enjoyable read. This book made me want to start re-reading some of Egan's full length works, which I am finding just as good as the first time around.
Hard Science Fiction - maximum reading entertainment
on 4 November 2015 - Published on Amazon.com
Hard Science SF at its very best. I have read most of Greg Egan's books and I am always amazed at the wide variety of topics, characters, and locations he chooses. Amazing characterization, heavy detailed physics and science, and all done in a very entertaining package. One of the very best books of short stories I have ever read.
Not my absolute favorite Greg Egan book
on 10 October 2017 - Published on Amazon.com
Not my absolute favorite Greg Egan book, but easily worth the $2.99 for the kindle version. His short stories are always nice little brain trips.
Great collection of short stories

Great collection of short stories. Plus some great hard scifi that is an exercise to wrap your brain around

Greg Egan is the hardest of hard science fiction writers, and this is another masterful work in the genre.
