    1. The writing is lyrical, making the best of an ambitious and inventive idea; patterns and their relationships to maths, and that relationship to time and space. Three vignettes add a human element that brings the complexity of human relationships (both to each other and to the world), and the whole combines into a teasing but fascinating story. Available from Tor in celebration of the release of a collection of Vandana Singh's work - free to read here: tor/2018/02/19/read-vAnd if this was any bar [...]


    2. This is the first of anything I've ever read by Vandana Singh, and all I can say is wow, can this woman write. Ambiguity Machines: An Examination is a short story told in the format of an engineering exam (well, I mean, it is still a story, not a test) but had me thinking about it long after I finished reading. The candidates taking the exam for the position of Junior Navigator (well, us readers) read the three fairly long stories relating to the discoveries of impossible machines, and later hyp [...]


    3. What can we make of the relationship between human and machine?This is three beautifully told related vignettes wrapped in a twist made of awesome. (Really, the twist end booted this very firmly up from four to five stars. I'm into this kind of thing, though.) Available free at Tor. Go and read it already.


    4. Too fanciful, too pomo.I didn't like this as much as the other Singh stories I read (such as the memorable Infinities). Part of the difference may be due to the author's familiarity with the setting of these other stories. This one on the other hand is all over the place and doesn't feel as real.I liked the idea underlying the third part and some of the descriptions but the whole thing is too self-consciously literary and doesn't make enough sense.


    5. Another delightful tale by Vandana SinghVandana Singh combines a lyrical voice with a special imagination, one that is shaped by the mysterious forces that unfold from multiple, indeterminant possible realities. A quantum story teller who gives life to a subjectivity that mathematician-philosopher Alfred North Whitehead understood to be the real, irreducible nature of reality.


    6. Ambiguity Machines is a captivating story about time and love of various sorts. The writing is lyrical, and the three stories illicit such longing and melancholy that you'll be left feeling the words for some time.


    7. I didn't want to write anything at all about this haunting story, because that felt too much like pinning it down, and it's best knowing nothing about it when you begin. But on reflection that felt dismissive, so I shall simply say this, and that it is well worth the beginning, and free online.



    8. I think the set up of this one went over my head a little bit, but the overarching themes and the emotion resonated with me. I would probably give it 3.5 stars if I could.


    9. Three very strange, bizarre, yet somehow powerfully magical short stories packed together in a fictional engineering exam that explores new concepts in machine design and function.


    10. I'm working my way through some Tor novellas and novelettes. This is a sweet modern fairy tale with a middle eastern bent, three vignettes presented in the form of an engineering exam paper.
