For once, choosing a book by its cover proved a good decision!
A great collection of short stories, themed around the scientific explorations flowing from the Enlightenment, and set against the backdrop of daily life - ordinary, and, in Ship Fever (the novella which closes the collection) extraordinary.

Ideas crop up in different guises throughout the collection - the most memorable being the part played by amateurs and women in piecing together the small discoveries and theories into the patchwork of the sciences we are taught today.
Rating: 7/10
