The Neutrinos Are Coming and Other Stories

Science Fiction Omnibus

Author Name: Dinker Charak | Format: Paperback | Genre : Science Fiction Other Details

“Dinker Charak’s anthology allows the readers’ involvement in finding the scientific principles which are implicit in these stories. The binding force of all the seven stories in the anthology is that they take the readers to the far-fetched future and also to the unexplored regions where the basic scientific principles could help anyone to resolve the problems of the future. […] each one of them provides us with humor. I wish that the esteemed readers will enjoy this unique work of art which could provide not only entertainment but also thought-provoking ideas.”

– Dr Srinarahari, Vice-President of the Asian Science Fiction Association and Secretary-General of the Indian Association for Science Fiction Studies
