A modern master

The University of Illinois's Modern Masters of Science Fiction series, which began with Jad Smith's excellent look at John Brunner, goes from strength to strength. The latest discusses Greg Egan, author of such fascinating and thought-provoking works as Permutation City and Distress. Karen Burnham is bicultural: a thoughtful reader who can evaluate the literary qualities and a NASA scientist with the chops to discuss the recent work, which Egan himself suggests should be read with a pencil and paper at hand.
