Book Description

A hero returns home from the end of time, and must ignore a savage band of outlaws or risk everything for which he's struggled. A derelict man-god holds the only hope against a tyrant whose influence reaches the molecular level of the solar system. And at the twilight of the millennium, the pressurized geology and politics of Washington state build toward eruption as a mining robot gains human understanding. These are just a few of the excellent, idiosyncratic stories presented here by one of the very best new professionals in science fiction.

Product Description

Review

"Remember his name, and keep watching for whatever he does." --Roger Zelazny

Synopsis

A story you will never forget. From the touching sadness of a robot digging into the unplumbed depths of Planet Earth, to the horrible consequences a veteran suffers 'after' a war at the end of time, Daniel gives us an intelligent bittersweet look at what humanity might become and the future, both good and bad.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant and thought-provoking 2 Sept. 1999
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover
The Robot's Twilight Companion is a brilliant compendium of stories by one of the best and the brightest (not to mention criminally underappreciated) young writers in America. Read it and stretch your mind so far out of shape you will never see the world in the same way again. If you like Philip K. Dick, Stanislaw Lem, or even William Faulkner, Tony Daniel's books belong on your shelves -- and in your head! Make The Robot's Twilight Companion your companion and I guarantee it will be the start of a beautiful relationship.

5.0 out of 5 stars As good as it gets 7 Sept. 2013
By Marjorie A. Coughlin - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is some of the best science fiction I have ever read. Tony Daniel's books are right up there with sci-fi greats like Asimov, Zelazny, Heinlein, and Bradbury. In fact, I haven't enjoyed anything this much since I first read the Amber series by Roger Zelazny.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not Free SF Reader 25 April 2008
By Blue Tyson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
A good book. This collection averages 3.50 which is really nicely done for a first batch, anchored by the excellent 'A Dry, Quiet War' about a very strange post-war homecoming from his Metaplanetary setting. A few stories from that setting, as well as a couple in the middle that tend to the supernatural, and even a science fiction spy story, in Prague.
