Incandescence - Greg Egan

In the future of the pair from Riding the Crocodile Egan does Forward meets Clement, or something like that.

Two story strands here - a pair from the Amalgam, still contemplating the Aloof and their posthumanity, and a far more primitive people stuck in a nasty astronomical situation.

The former discovers the latter, as the latter discovers the physics of their situation.

Pity all physics lectures couldn't be this entertaining!

3.5 out of 5
