Self-Reference Engine

by Toh EnJoe, translated by Terry Gallagher

“Hard SF” book stands at the intersection of surrealism and quantum physics, exploring ideas about non-linear time, parallel universes (at war with one another!), the future of computing, and the concept of narrative itself. The author was awarded the Akutagawa Prize in 2012, and this translation won the Philip K. Dick Award Special Citation in 2014.
