5.0 out of 5 stars SF with a human heart 27 Sep 2000
By A Customer - Published on
Amy Sterling Casil takes SF's obligatory "What if?" and makes the consequences of technological change both painfully and joyfully personal. For those familiar with Amy's work, this volume contains some well-loved favorites (such as her debut story, "Jonny Punkinhead"), as will as new works of fiction. In "Renascence of Memory," you'll meet an Alzheimer's patient whose health and memory are gradually restored. But is the miracle worth the price of memories perhaps better left forgotten? In "Motherwife," a man downloads the women in his life into his computer. Can he resist the temptation to tinker with their programming? Most especially don't miss "The Color of Time,"--an exploration of mothers and daughters, childbirth and death, love and art. This book won't teach you anything about quantum mechanics or string theory, but it just might teach you something about the person you see in the mirror every day.

5.0 out of 5 stars Highly recommended 26 Sep 2000
By Maren Henry - Published on
If you're familiar with Amy Sterling Casil's work, then you'll know what to expect here: thought-provoking, character-intense, high-class science fiction. If you're not familiar with Amy Sterling Casil's work, then you've got a treat in store for you. Of particular note is her breakout story, "Jonny Punkinhead," which originally appeared in the Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction.

5.0 out of 5 stars A note from the publisher 24 Sep 2000
By John Betancourt - Published on
WITHOUT ABSOLUTION is the first collection from science fiction and fantasy writer Amy Sterling Casil-nine stories and four poems by the only four-time finalist and one-time winner of the Writers of the Future Contest and frequest writer for FANTASY & SCIENCE FICTION. These visions take you from a far future Arles, France to the starred Mulholland night...highly recommended.
