Review

"Delightful and engaging, both intellectually and viscerally: a superb achievement." --Kirkus on Ventus (starred review)

"With its 10 powerful short stories, The Engine of Recall serves as an ideal introduction to the talents of Toronto science fiction writer Karl Schroeder. While his novels have met with considerable success (Permanence was awarded the Aurora Award and his first novel, Ventus, was named a New York Times Notable Book), his shorter works have not been collected prior to this volume, edited by Robert J. Sawyer for his eponymous imprint. . . . . . The disparate stories are united by the keen edge of Schroederas writing and the fundamental humanism at the storiesa core. Schroeder writes with a terse economy of language, a precision that one expects from the genre but rarely encounters. Few words are wasted, and the language underscores the close attention to characterization." -- Quill & Quire
