Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

New Zealand's top writers and physicists collaborate to create a provocative and fascinating discussion on the most strange and fantastic aspects of physics. With topics that include the curvature of space time, wave particle duality, the untimely death of Schrodinger's cat, Heisenberg's Uncertainty Principle, dark energy, and the end of the universe, this extraordinary guide artfully blends philosophy and literature with science.

Ten New Zealand writers respond to physics, with short stories, poetry, essays and a comic.

Includes bibliographical references.
