Einstein's Monsters is about the nuclear world A collection of short stories that terrorize the mind and brutalize concepts of reality it seeps paranoia The fear is not of death itself but the type of horrendous death only possible by nuclear war Amis is a wordsmith and language is his strongest suit The language here has all the coiled power of his subject matter and it gropes towards Einstein's Monsters The Life and Times of Black Buy Einstein's Monsters The Life and Times of Black Holes by Impey Chris online on ae at best prices Fast and free shipp Martin Amis hates nuclear weapons With a passion He doesn t know what to do with them and would rather they did not exist in the first place And who can blame him Einstein s Monsters a collection of five stories dealing with people living under constant threat of a nuclear war and survivors of nuclear apocalypse was published in 1987when the Doomsday Clock stood at just three minutes to midnight its closest position since 1953 when the clock stood at two minutes when both the Soviet Union and the United States detonated nuclear bombs within months of one another Exactly ten years after that the world held its breath for thirteen days during the Cuban Missile Crisis thirty years later it s deep Cold War and the two superpowers are at race with one another to strengthen their nuclear capabilities even further And the clock is ticking tickingAmis prefaces his stories with an essay titled Thinkability a heated introduction seeing the world enter a state of perpetual paranoia as a result from the invention of nuclear weaponry and man s struggle for of it Nuclear war is seven minutes away and might be over in an afternoon Amis s essay full of anxiety at the face of what he considers to be an unsolvable situation What is the only provocation that could bring about the use of nuclear weapons Nuclear weapons What is the priority target for nuclear weapons Nuclear weapons What is the only established defense against nuclear weapons Nuclear weapons How do we prevent the use of nuclear weapons By threatening to use nuclear weapons And we can t get rid of nuclear weapons because of nuclear weapons Thinkability is a show of frustration as Amis sees the world with nuclear warheads as being engaged in a perpetual Mexican standoff since we opened the Pandora s box and can t possibly hope to close it again Amis fears not death itself but that it could come as as a conclusion to the horrifying reality of a nuclear war which in his eyes nothing else could match in its monstrosity Events that we call acts of God floods earthuakes eruptions are flesh wounds compared to the human act of nuclear war a million Hiroshimas Like God nuclear weapons are free creations of the human mind Unlike God nuclear weapons are real And they are hereUnfortunately none of the stories contained in Einstein s Monsters match the intensity of Thinkability and all lack its directness and urgency It s clear that Amis although an acclaimed novelist is not a writer of science fiction and uite possibly not a short story writer either in these stories he seems to struggle with finding a way to best use his ideas and themes but fails to do what other have achieved both before him and since create a narrative which would not just be a background for his ideas but would be a world of itself filled with people who live and breathe on their own and are not just playing their part Amis s stories here are far too allegorical and seem almost like pastiches full of half finished ideas and scenariosTwo of the stories are set in a world tottering on the brink of a nuclear apocalypse and three in one in post apocalyptic reality The first story titled Bujak and the Strong Force or God s Dice attracted my attention immediately since one of my university friends nickname was Bujak and I wondered where did Amis come up with such name Bujak of the story was also a Polish man here I begun to feel uncanny who tracks down Nazi colaborators after World War 2 and whose personal hero is Einstein Bujak lives in South London and has the gift of the strong force meaning literally being strong as an ox Interestingly enough Bujak is opposted to using it and his opposition to use of said force comes from him attributing all the evils of the world to Einsteinian strong force knowledge of nuclear energy The allegory is heavily handed throughout and the ending doesn t help itThe rest of the stories are interesting but suffer from the same symptoms they don t uite seem to fit the subject they re describing Insight at Flame Lake features Dan a schizophrenic boy who stays with Ned his uncle after his father who worked with delivering nuclear weapons has committed suicide The story consists of Dan s and Ned s respective diary entries but the link to apocalypse and nuclear dangers is almost non existant The Time Disease is reminiscent of Amis s famous novel Time s Arrow where the protagonists experiences time backwards a play on Benjamin Button In this story the narrator s wife has come down with the time disease a disease which reverses the aging process and restores vitality which is unwanted as all humans want to do is grow older ill and die in a bizarre post apocalyptic world An interesting idea but I fear that it s all there is to it especially when a very similar concept has been done before by the same man The Little Puppy That Could obviously takes its title from The Little Enginge That Could an is a parody on a children s fable where a society is preyed on by a giant mutated dog which eats one human a week Personally I thought that Harlan Ellison had a interesting idea with his famous short A Boy and his Dog where a boy and a dog work together as a team in a post apocalyptic world Ellison s protagonists both human and canine are memorable Amis s story vanishes from memory rather uicklyThe last story The Immortals is probably most interesting of the lot narrated in the first person by an entity which claims to be immortal and which narrates the end of time as the last of humanity came to New Zealand to die from radiation poisoning after nuclear warfare This being has existed for millions of years and observed the development of earth and evolution of life observing humanity from the outside and offering scathing commentary Just as I was thinking that no century could possibly be dumber than the nineteenth along comes the twentieth I swear the entire planet seemed to be staging some kind of stupidity contest I could tell then how the human story would end Anybody could Just the one outcome The story is conceptually interesting and unlike other stories with the exclusion of Little Puppy is not narrated nor deals with any concrete characters the unnamed immortal entity an outside observer of humanity and its follies is a perfect way for Amis to employ his own famous ironic and biting voice without having to bother with writing it on cue cards of his characters or employ any sci fi tropes It reminded me of my favorite Ellison story I Have No Mouth and I Must Scream which is never a bad thing The narrator of the last story can be Amis himself as indeed unlike him his words are immortal and what he has written in these pages can never dieUltimately Einstein s Monsters contains a uite good introductory essay and two good stories with The Immortals being the best of the bunch curiously also being the Most Amis like piece It is however uite dated as ironically in 1988 both the Soviet Union and the US would sign treaties eliminating immediate range nuclear forces and their relations would improve and in 1991 the Soviet Union would dissolve altogether However in 1987 a year of fear of living in the shadow of a mushroom cloud could feel like a lifetime and nuclear weapons are indeed here to stayand we can t ever uninvent them More remarkable fiction about the dangers and conseuences of nuclear warfare has been written such as Nevil Shute s sad and affecting novel On the Beach and a reader interested in the topic would be better advised to skim Einstein s Monsters for its introduction and one or two stories and read the grand classics instead
