One of contemporary Science Fiction's most original and compelling voices, Vandana Singh is a professor of physics who weaves the ancient wisdom of her native India and the hard truths of quantum science into stories that speak to the complex wonders of today's world. This collection includes both her fiction and her report on the Utopian experiments that are finding new ways to save our unraveling dystopia.


"A most promising and original young writer." -- Ursula K. Le Guin, author of The Lathe of Heaven and The Dispossessed

"Vandana Singh's radiant protagonist is a planet unto herself." -- Village Voice
