Blurbs:
  • "The stories in this collection show a deep concern for our world, its environment and its future. Cynical and often satirical, Turner turns a razor-like wit on SF and our world as we face the end of the 20th Century." Eidolon
  • "Brilliant, passionate, and dangerous as only the clearest visions can be ... Challenging, astringent, moving, and exhilarating. What more could you ask from a collection of speculative fiction?" Locus
  • "Turner provides variants of many of the standard themes of SF, such as genetic engineering and benign utopianism, which in many fictional hands results in superbeings and supercivilisations. Turner sees instead a new dimension to our potential for tragedy. For an intelligent fictional warning as to the scientific and societal forces of today that will determine our future, we all need A Pursuit of Miracles." Australian Book Review
