„Zendegi“ by Greg Egan reviewed by Valentin Ivanov in „Europa SF“, The European Speculative Fiction Portal


I came across Greg Egan many years ago, reading a short story titled “Wang’s Carpets”, where he described aliens living in Fourier space, in naturally evolved quasi-computer, based on seaweeds in an ocean on another planet. If it sounds complicated, this is because it is a complicated concept that blurs the border between the natural and the artificial.

„Zendegi“ begins in a very different manner than anything else I saw by Egan…
