The second of Egan's short story collections to be reissued this month by Gollancz. Luminous was first published back in 1998 and the title story won Egan the Golden Aurealis that I mentioned above.
"In a time when it's frequently claimed that SF holds no more surprises Egan casts a coldly innovative eye on old themes... Egan's visions of the future glow with gloomy intellectual fire. Luminous indeed.". -- David Langford
