Multitalented creature though he is - mathematician, computer scientist, essayist - Rudy Rucker is best known for his groundbreaking science fiction. And yet it has been seventeen years since Rucker's last major story collection.

The companion volume to Seek!, his selected nonfiction, Gnarl! brings together three dozen of Rucker's best, many of them newly revised by the author. The collection includes previously unanthologized stories written together with Bruce Sterling and Paul Di Filippo and one previously unpublished story written with marc Laidlaw. A classic such as "The Fifty-Seventh Franz Kafka," a meditation on cloning that is part horror, part farce, is side-by-side with a "pseudo-memoir" - a Ruckerian specialty - "The Indian Rope Trick Explained". Throughout, there is the unique Rucker mix: cutting-edge physics, a wild but perversely logical imagination, and a decidedly punk attitude.
