Reviews of Schild’s Ladder by Greg Egan

Judy Backhouse reviewed on July 14, 2020

I am at a loss to understand how I lived this long without stumbling on Greg Egan. Schild’s Ladder is a wonderful, old-fashioned (like me) sci-fi novel with just the right mix of real science and imaginative interpretation to make it plausible but mind-expanding. I loved the idea of living in a future where we have escaped from bodies and the identities that they impose and the tension created and exploited around the two different factions and their responses to the growing threat of the novo-vacuum keeps the story engaging. I'm looking forward to making my way through the rest of his books.
