In her first North American collection, Vandana Singh’s deep humanism interplay’s with her scientific background in stories that explore and celebrate this world and others and characters who are trying to make sense of the people they meet, what they see, and the challenges they face.
An eleventh century poet wakes to find he is as an artificially intelligent companion on a starship. A woman of no account has the ability to look into the past. In “Requiem,” a major new novella, a woman goes to Alaska to try and make sense of her aunt’s disappearance.
Singh’s stories have been performed on BBC radio, been finalists for the British SF Association award, selected for the Tiptree award honour list, and oft reprinted in Best of the Year anthologies. She dives deep into the vast strangeness of the universe without and within and with her unblinking clear vision she explores the ways we move through space and time: together, yet always apart.
