The remainder of the book is taken up by two of Nisi Shawl's essays Beautiful Strangers: Transracial Writing for the Sincere and Appropriate Cultural Appropriation, and also an excerpt from her novel, The Blazing World. Nevertheless, it provides insight into an often-overlooked aspect of the writing process, one of special resonance to those who seek to write science fiction and fantasy, and does so in a clear and concise manner.

Distances is fascinating far-future science fiction, set in a desert city. For Anasuya, mathematics was experiential, a sixth sense that bared before her the harmonies, natural and artificial, that formed the sub-text of the world. So when mathematicians from the planet Tirana, 18-light-years-distant, ask Anasuya's help in solving a series of equations, she finds the new geometrical space they present her with intriguing. But as she explores the new space, she soon comes to suspect that it represents an actual physical system, and that the equations she is being asked to solve have a significance the Tiranis are concealing.

Reviews

"...Individual sections illuminate and provide a rounded backdrop to the whole, until by the end of this finely layered novella I felt as though I had met a fully formed human being—not to mention a number of fascinating characters—and all with a mathematical conundrum of epic proportions with dire import for the cultures of two planets." (read the whole review) — Bob Blough, Tangent Online July 8, 2009

"… perhaps the most satisfying thing about Distances is how irreducible it feels, how Singh mixes mathematical, artistic and sociocultural speculation in a way that feels holistic precisely because it is aware of where those different domains intersect and interact.." — Niall Harrison, Torque Control

Vandana Singh is an amazingly unique voice. She is highly imaginative, often lyrical, and emotionally evocative in a graceful manner.

This is such an original and fascinating story! It builds a universe I'd love to revisit, but it is an entirely satisfying story on its own. I enjoyed the concept of mathematics as something you can explore in a quasi-physical sense, and the theme of leaving home (and whether you can ever really return) was explored in a thought-provoking but not heavy-handed way. This is a great novella.
