I didn't have time or patience to follow all the threads the writer was weaving together.

What a display of imagination. I didn't try too much to link the stories, but each story reads like a puzzle. I loved it. If indeed there is a link between them, I suppose the rewards are even greater for the reader.

Very cool concept - geometry of the novel and short stories relating to one another. I liked how first impressions of a story change so much after you read other related stories. Interesting use of religion, science, and different writing styles.

A very challenging and rewarding read. 12 stories which unfold and fold into each other until one can almost imagine the 12-sided "shape" taking shape. Not for the casual reader. You might want to read the author's afterword first.
