There were people here: humans, apparently an Earth colony that had lost contact with the home world centuries before.

If Le Guin's voice is often stately and slightly old-fashioned -- tipping over slightly into the stiff and archaic -- and, say, Tiptree's voice is colourfully zany, zinging through slang and adopting as many harlequin guises as there are stories and characters, Russ's voice is something else again: direct, personal, warm in a way. I forget who it was that said books and reading are the closest thing we'll ever have to telepathy -- that when you read a book that's the only time you can be sure you know exactly what someone else is thinking.

And doubtless a number of fields of literary theory, and heirs of Wittgenstein, would find that painfully naive: is my "blue" the same thing you see when you visualize "blue"? Many people especially women felt when they read that first sentence of "When It Changed" that draws you in, Katie drives like a maniac, that Russ was speaking directly to them, for them, with an electric charge, a shock of recognition: Here I am.

Here you are. Here we are. It was as if Miranda, after living all her life in a society of men and spirits, had seen Ferdinanda instead of Ferdinand. O brave new world that has such women in't! This book isn't quite there yet; Russ hasn't looked in the mirror, or at another woman, but just the driving narrative energy of this story reminded me that when she does, just one book and two years or so on from this one, the result will be spectacular.

And Chaos Died expresses in form as well as content the experiences of a man who crash-lands on a planet of psionic humans and slowly becomes like them. There's a lot of scifi with what I'd call weak psionics where the powers are like parlor tricks, or at best sorcery. Here, the psionic humans have full command over matter and energy.

As our close third person character understands and develops these powers, his perception of the world changes dramatically, becoming more and more alien. It's an accomplishment that the novel is not entirely incoherent by the end. I can't imagine writing this novel, or writing it better, yet I don't think its experiment is entirely successful. It's worth reading and I recommend it, precisely because it tries even if it doesn't always succeed to reach so far beyond most SF you'll read.

A national hospital spokesman said that doctors there were treating citizens from India, Portugal and Turkey, and five from the UK. As rescue workers and ordinary people rushed to help, security forces launched a massive operation to find those responsible and prevent further strikes.

    An overnight curfew was declared and social media restricted to prevent the circulation of inflammatory material. Though the attackers appeared to have been killed in the blasts, there were fears others might be waiting to launch a second wave of attacks. It was clear that an operation to launch so many simultaneous attacks involved a large support network that investigators urgently needed to unravel, one police official said.

    An indication that security forces might be closing in on remaining perpetrators emerged about three hours after the attacks came. A number of people were arrested at the address, some of whom were seriously injured. Shortly afterwards, three police officers were killed while conducting a search of a suspected safe house in Dematagoda, on the outskirts of the city. The occupants of the safe house appeared to have detonated explosives to prevent their arrest, said the defence minister, Ruwan Wijewardene. He described the wave of bombings as a terrorist attack by religious extremists.

    There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the attacks, but Sri Lanka has experienced rising sectarian tension in recent years. About 1. In recent years, there have been clashes between the majority Buddhist community and minority Muslims, and in March last year the government imposed a day state of emergency to quell anti-Muslim riots. Christian groups have also reported increased harassment from hardline Buddhist groups. Others were inspired by the sight of hundreds — Hindus, Christians, Muslims, Buddhists, Tamils and Sinhalese — who rushed to hospitals and clinics to give blood.
