UTTERLY. GODDAMN. FASCINATING. This is a collection of easily-readable stories that, when unpacked and considered, contain MULTITUDES. I could recommend this to anyone: if you're into culture/anthropology; religion; language; science; space, culture, world-building, ethics, AI, time-travel, parallel universes -- there's something for everyone. Rarely have I seen so many higher-level premises in such varied fields, seamlessly tied into cohesive narratives. I'm in f***ing AWE of this book.
