Publications Reviews

"One hundred years after Einstein altered our view of the universe, a new collection of short stories is a fitting tribute to his creative genius."
Independent Review of I Am Because You Are

"Sparkling with wit and originality, making a virtue out of the frail humanity of science, these stories perfectly reflect the breathtaking poetry of Einstein’s greatest theory."
Michael Brooks,
author of 13 Things That Don't Make Sense

"Such is the display of writerly talent on display here that we are reminded that, as with space and time, the possibilities of literature will likely never cease to astound, amaze, and inspire us."
Nothingintherulebook Review of I Am Because You Are

"These stories form as strong a collection as I've read in a decade or more."
Ian Rankin Review of Let's Pretend
