Synopsis : This collection of 23 stories reflects a diversity of approaches to key questions about the human condition, including questions about mortality, love, obsession, and creativity. ?Balzac?s War? is a harrowing, powerful far-future novella that pits brother against brother in a landscape ravaged by war with Earth?s newly sentient human-made species. In 13th-century Cambodia, a lone artist is torn between his love of his craft and his unspoken love for a woman in ?The Bone Carver?s Tale.? In ?The Emperor?s Reply? and ?The Compass of His Bones,? set in 17th-century Peru, the last Incan Emperor, having brutally fallen at the hands of the Conquistadores, seeks his revenge.
