Review:

A remarkable (though astonishingly bleak) assembly of experiments in the carrying of story ideas to the end of their tether. -- John Clute, Encyclopedia of Science Fiction

The cream of Bayley's short fiction... complex, innovative, bold and striking. -- Brian Stableford, Vector

[Bayley] has the ineffable, unfakeable genius of a true SF visionary: of Wells, Stapledon, Ballard; of Bester, Dick, and Farmer. -- Bruce Sterling, Cheap Truth
