Robert J. Sawyer established his reputation as a fine novelist when he burst on the science fiction scene with Golden Fleece in 1990. More quietly, he has built an impressive body of short fiction, essays, articles, and speeches. Relativity is his first collection of these.

This Aurora Award-winning collection gives you a chance to read a selection of Sawyer's speeches, including his acceptance of the prestigious Hugo Award for his novel Hominids in 2003.

Among his articles, you'll discover how the author views science and religion, science fiction's importance to the world, what exactly he thinks is the difference between Canadian and American SF, and his fond remembrance of Judith Merril.

Featuring a foreword by Mike Resnick and introductory notes on most pieces by Sawyer. Originally published in hardcover 2004 by ISFiC Press.

Relativity also contains all three years of his column "On Writing" from the Canadian SF magazine, On Spec, collected here for the first time.

Read the stories collected, and you'll... ... become a modern day killer who walks with dinosaurs in Just Like Old Times... experience first contact with an alien race, with all that implies in Ineluctable... fly on board a space ship in The Shoulders of Giants.

And enjoy five more flights of the imagination in Immortality, The Stanley Cup Caper, Star Light, Star Bright, The Hand You're Dealt, and the title story, Relativity.

Fascinating, controversial, thought-provoking, this collection looks into the works and the mind of one of SF's most influential "new" writers. Illinois Science Fiction in Chicago Press is proud to present: Relativity, a book every Robert J. Sawyer and SF fan should have in their collection.

Robert J. Sawyer has won the Hugo, Nebula, John W. Campbell Memorial, Seiun, and Aurora Awards, all for best science fiction novel of the year. His novels include Golden Fleece, Rollback, Wake, and FlashForward (basis for the TV series).
