—SESSION 11: AMBIGUITY MACHINES AND OTHER STORIES, BY VANDANA SINGH—
‘At once lyrical and experimental, stunningly original and deeply rooted in myth, the stories that make up Ambiguity Machines and Other Stories underscore Vandanah Singh’s position as one of the most accomplished and interesting writers of speculative fiction working today.
While collections of short stories and novellas tend to be uneven, Singh’s is simply one tour de force after another. Characters move through time, between dimensions, around the galaxy, and beyond. Consciousnesses of long-dead queens and Indian poets come alive again in twenty-first-century organic and artificial brains. Stories are folded within stories, and readers can find themselves happily lost in a forest of moving imagery and unexpected connections. Singh skillfully brings together the stories and traditions of her native India with the latest in theoretical and experimental physics to produce unforgettable characters.’
