    2. Mixing fiction and non-fiction short stories that are centered around a specific topic or concept is a great idea! However, although I find the general theory of relativity to be very interesting I didn't manage to immerse myself in these stories as much as I had hoped I would. Granted, some of them were very enjoyable but I was confused after many others. Perhaps I read them too quickly and didn't take enough time to really understand what was going on. Maybe I will re-read them but this time m [...]

Stories by Dilys Rose and Tasneem Zehra Husain in particular stood out (the latter a writer I hadn't come across before - I went straight out and bought her book 'Only The Longest Threads' after reading this). I love fiction about science and scientists, and this book brings together some of the finest writers in this oft neglected area [...]
