This collection includes both her fiction and her report on the Utopian experiments that are finding new ways to save our unraveling dystopia.

Praise

“A most promising and original young writer.”
—Ursula K. Le Guin

“Vandana Singh’s radiant protagonist is a planet unto herself.”
Village Voice

“...individual sections illuminate and provide a rounded backdrop to the whole, until by the end of this finely layered novella I felt as though I had met a fully formed human being—not to mention a number of fascinating characters—and all with a mathematical conundrum of epic proportions with dire import for the cultures of two planets.”
—Bob Blough, Tangent Online

“Singh mixes mathematical, artistic, and sociocultural speculation in a way that feels holistic precisely because it is aware of where those different domains intersect and interact.”
—Niall Harrison, host of Torque Control

“Lovely! What a pleasure this book is ... full of warmth, compassion, affection, high comedy and low.”
—Molly Gloss, author of The Hearts of Horses

“Sweeping starscapes and daring cosmology that make Singh a worthy heir to Cordwainer Smith and Arthur C. Clarke.”
—Chris Moriarty, Fantasy & Science Fiction

“...the first writer of Indian origin to make a serious mark in the SF world ... she writes with such a beguiling touch of the strange.”
—Nilanjana Roy, Business Standard
