Identity Theft and Other Stories
by ROBERT J. SAWYER
(Rob's second collection, published 2008)
"As fellow Canadian SF author Robert Charles Wilson points out in the introduction, Sawyer's fiction possesses a remarkable down-to-earth quality that appeals to readers of all nationalities. Yet Sawyer's collection showcases not only an irresistibly engaging narrative voice but also a gift for confronting thorny philosophical conundrums. At every opportunity, Sawyer forces his readers to think while holding their attention with ingenious premises and superlative craftsmanship." Booklist
"Sawyer's latest collection is highly entertaining and thought-provoking; the book has something for almost any science-fiction fan. It is a testament to Sawyer's talent that it is not necessary to be a sci-fi fan to enjoy his writing; this is a collection of great stories that just happen to be set in the future." Quill & Quire
Iterations and Other Stories
by ROBERT J. SAWYER
(Rob's first collection, published 2002)
"Canada's leading sf author has been penning acclaimed novels and editing anthologies for years, but not until now has he produced a collection of his superlative, often award-winning, short stories. His fans will be gratified to find many of his favorite themes amply represented here, from evolution gone awry to sentient dinosaurs to the perilous loopholes created by quantum physics. Sawyer has a gift for casting jarringly original ideas in lucid, sharp-edged prose that mainstream-fiction as well as sf readers should appreciate." Booklist
