about this book

Einstein's Monsters projects a harrowing vision of an imminent, though not inevitable, future for humankind. These powerfully imagined stories depict  the world before and after a nuclear holocaust. Together with the provocative introductory essay, "Thinkability," these stories are an impassioned protest against nuclear warfare and a compelling reaffirmation of the value of human life.

"In addition to high verbal energy and flashes of satiric genius, the stories hum with the resentment and loathing of a man who fears for his natural patrimony, the earth, the sky and time itself."--Time
