Axiomatic is a collection of eighteen short stories by Greg Egan, the Australian author of Quarantine and Permutation City. Egan's ideas stretch your head the way the better cyberpunk does, without cyberpunk's self-indulgent grime and alienation. Most of the stories center on questions about the nature of consciousness and the definition of self. Egan has an improbable knack for making this sort of solipsistic navel-gazing interesting.
