Description

Thought X is based upon a standout idea – and is executed to near-perfection. (…)
It would be criminal to not mention 'Equivalence' by Sandra Alland or
'The Child In The Lock' by Robin Ince – stories that were simply breath-taking.”

Sandra collaborated with physicist and artist, Dr Ana Jofre, in the creation of the story, "Equivalence". Einstein's Lift is melded with the world of a genderqueer disabled silks performer, who may or may not be where you think they are.

Edited by Ra Page & Dr Rob Appleby

Featuring Sandra Alland, Claire Dean, Sarah Schofield, Adam Marek, Lisa Tuttle, Ian Watson, Margaret Wilkinson, Zoe Gilbert, Annie Kirby & Frank Cottrell Boyce

Featuring leading scientists acting as consultants on the stories, and writing scientific afterwords, bringing the theory featured in the stories to life.

From Newton's Bucket, to Maxwell’s Demon, from Einstein's Lift to Schrodinger’s Cat – all are examples of 'fiction' being used at the highest level, not just to explain, but to deduce, to prove. In this unique anthology, authors have collaborated with leading scientists, to bounce literary, human narratives against purely theoretical ones, alloying together real stories with abstract ones, to produce truly extraordinary results.
