Like a phosphorus grenade, David Brin's Otherness use traditional thoughts and metaphors to light the way in changing my very thoughts on the way I think. Thank you, David!

Highly recommend! A true gem!
This is truly a great reading. Each story is rich with ideas. These ideas are fresh , profound and scientific, not some fairy tales. And despite being idea oriented stories have live vivid characters that are interesting to follow. This is by far one of the best collections. On par with Far Futures and Carbide Tipped Pens.
