The Best Science Fiction of the Year: Volume Six
I will update this anthology as I go along…
– YELLOW AND THE PERCEPTION OF REALITY by Maureen McHugh
“Yellow and the Perception of Reality” by Maureen McHugh is a science fiction story about a woman who delves into the mystery of why and how her twin sister, a physicist, has been brain damaged in a lab accident in which two of her colleagues died.“
Do we perceive reality as it is or is reality created by our own perception? When I took philosophy in school, this was a concept that I struggled with. Nice take on it. I enjoyed the writing as well and will have a look at what else the author has written. Looking good: Mission Child and China Mountain Zhang.
Bonus points for Claude, the octopus. ★★★★★
