Winner of the Hugo and Nebula Awards, Connie Willis is broadly admired as both a sharp humorist and a master of science fiction. A standout from the acclaimed collection The Best of Connie Willis, "At the Rialto" showcases the author's talent for crafting an unforgettable comedy of manners. Complete entropy has set in at the Hollywood Rialto, where Dr. Ruth Baringer is attending the 1989 International Congress of Quantum Physicists. As Baringer struggles with everything from checking in to catching Dr. Gedanken's keynote presentation, she draws parallels between the chaos of life (particularly at the Rialto) and the unfathomable conundrum known as quantum physics.
