Description: In the title story, The Dialogues of Time and Entropy, a medical researcher's possible discovery of a cure for a rate and fatal disease threatens to destroy his life as his marriage deteriorated and his ambivalence towards his autistic daughter increases.
Most of Stollman's stories address the simultaneous gift and burden of prodigious talent the euphoria of creation and discovery, balanced by the weight of responsibility and the distractions of success. These stories are infused with a deep sense of humanity and an impressive range of knowledge of science, music, religion, and language itself. In them Stollman examines our weaknesses while always evoking a sense of awe, and delight, in the face of seemingly limitless human potential.
