Carbide Tipped Pens continues to garner positive reviews.
Nancy Hightower in the Washington Post says: “The strongest stories, by Liu Cixin, Aliette de Bodard and David DeGraff, explore a dynamic interplay between human psychology and technological advancement while also delivering thrilling plots.”
Alex Good in the Toronto Star writes: “As the stories in this new collection, edited by Choi and SF master Ben Bova, indicate, hard SF can go down many different roads. And the point is never just the science and engineering itself, but rather what people do with it, or what it does to them.”
The book is also a Bakka Phoenix recommendation.
