At Samurai Industries, Paul Carpenter studies his computer monitors to predict the movement of toxic clouds drifting across the Pacific Northwest. If he’s wrong, a sudden shift of wind can kill thousands.
Once again, Robert Silverberg demonstrates his incredible vision as much of the storyline revolves around a reality TV scenario, where the damaged characters are made to play out parts before a solar system wide audience of billions. Silverberg’s rare talent for narrative excellence is again made apparent and this work also highlighted his gift for symbolism and metaphor.

Robert Silverberg is one of science fiction’s most beloved writers, and the author of such contemporary classics as Dying Inside, Downward to the Earth, and Lord Valentine’s Castle. He is a past president of the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America and the winner of five Nebula Awards and five Hugo Awards. In 2004 the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America presented him with the Grand Master Award. Silverberg is one of twenty-nine writers to have received that distinction.
Robert Silverberg was born in 1935 Thorns did get an Hugo nomination in 1968 (no, let’s not be petty and point out that Silverberg was toastmaster in that year’s ceremony) but, if you compare it to the actual winner.
Robert Silverberg was born in 1935. His first published story appeared in 1954 when he was a sophomore at Columbia University. Since then, he has won the prestigious Nebula Award an astonishing five times and the Hugo on four occasions; he has been nominated for both awards more times than any other writer. Thorns did get an Hugo nomination in 1968 (no, let’s not be petty and point out that Silverberg was toastmaster in that year’s ceremony) but, if you compare it to the actual winner in that year, Roger Zelazny’s Lord of Light, the difference is chaotic.
