Thoreau's MicroscopeThoreau's Microscope by Michael Blumlein

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


A short collection of short pieces by a medical doctor and science fiction author. The title piece is definitely the strongest, an essay in which the author discusses Thoreau's philosophy of science while contemplating his own mortality and battle with lung cancer. The stories focus on the idea of what it means to be alive and what defines that. The book concludes with an interview by fellow science fiction author Terry Bisson. A good introduction to a smart author whose background only strengthens his authority.
