Multi-award winning author Greg Bear established himself as the most ambitious and imaginative of the potential successors to Arthur C. Clarke with his bestselling space operas Eon and Eternity. Tangents is his first collection of short stories and includes two tales that won both Hugo and Nebula Awards: 'Tangents' a remarkable account of contact with beings from another dimension, and the original short version of his classic novel Blood Music.
This audible recording recently got me through a long, exhausting automobile journey. There are definitely some dud stories in this collection, but the readers Taylor Brennan and Therese Plummer did a great job of maximizing the potential of these particular pieces. There was especially something powerful and stimulating about Taylor's voice that kept my attention pegged while my mind was trying to drift.
