Review by: Elizabeth Rowan Keith on Jan. 27, 2015 :
Barnaby Wilde makes me think. And I have fun doing it. There is nothing typical about Wilde's work. I try to read something from him about once a month. It is easy to recommend.

This book is full of engaging entertainment with an intellectual twist. In one story, a soggy group of underwear-clad physicists are found running down the hall to witness a rare scientific event. It’s hilarious. And it’s entirely the thing scientists would do. Not many people would know that. Somehow, this author does. It makes me wonder if he learned from experience, and keeps a change of clothes at work.

Review by: Tracey Howard on Jan. 3, 2015 :
A unique collection of short stories based around one central character who tells his tales with gentle humor and good natured acceptance of the truly unusual place he works in. (not to mention the not-so-subtle lessons in science!)

I whole-heartedly recommend this read for anyone who enjoys a little fantasy with their physics and a good chuckle with their coffee read!
