    A Hunger for the Infinite, which first appeared in Robert Silverberg's Far Horizons anthology, is a novella that takes place in the universe of "The Galactic Center Saga", detailing a galactic war between mechanical and biological life. Here, the pilots had made it to True Center in order to destroy something, anything, important to the Mechs, but Paris had something else on his mind. A story of the Mantis, and the decline of humans beginning in 3600 AD.

    Michale says: "Haunting"
    "Good, textured buildup, but a slightly pale ending"

    Do you have any additional comments?

    The story builds very well in discussion of art and human life. The Mechs were very frightening and viscerally abhorrent, which made their talk of art and well… not beauty, but experience… very interesting. The very end resolution stuck me as a little flat and pedantic, though. Still, solid story and lots of lovely, lurid detail!
