John L. Casti (ed); Anders Karlqvist (ed). In 1997, acclaimed science author John Casti led a dozen writers to a remote village called Abisko to discuss the nature of scientific truth. Their discussions focused on one major question: How do the stories that scientists tell each other, & the public, affect the way they do their science? This book is the outcome of that meeting of minds. Each chapter is by a noted scientist or science fiction writer who practices science, including: John Barros, Greg Bear, Ian Stewardt, Gregory Benford, Larry Niven, & John Casti. Eleven of the world’s top scientist-authors examine the phenomenon of science as storytelling. The tales scientists tell each other are often more mysterious than those they tell the public.
