The Reading Protocols of Science Fiction: Discourses on Reading SF
These are stories about character—about beings—in unusual circumstances, facing difficult choices, pushed to the point where they must bend or break.

The Power and the Glory
The Listeners (novelette)
James Gunn has the credentials: author of ten books [now over 40 and a SFWA Grandmaster] and some seventy-five stories, with a television series and a movie adapted from a novel--and a former president of the Science Fiction Writers of America. BREAKING POINT is a kind of retrospective--eight stories through which "interested readers may note the evolution of a writer."
Gunn notes that the latest generation of science fiction writers "had grown up reading science fiction, but they also knew literature and the humanities and they wanted to write stories and novels which met the critical standards of the mainstream."
A case in point being, of course, James Gunn. —St. Louis Post-Dispatch
