"Robert Silverberg's story stands out as unforgettable and of great importance in showing the potential danger of meeting extraterrestrial intelligent beings."—Forest Shultz, New Science Fiction an Fantasy Reviews

"All in all, anyone interested in this anthology's theme will likely enjoy it."—Tangent

What will it mean to be human in the future? How will we evolve in order to reach the stars?

Fifteen short stories collected in this book examine how interstellar flight might change humanity itself. Will we choose to upload our minds into a singularity? Enhance ourselves with alien DNA? Will our bodies remain the same, but our culture and societal norms adapt to accommodate for effects of time dilation, or become subsumed by advanced alien cultures?

Hugo and Nebula award winning authors, bestsellers, and some of the hottest new writers in the field of hard science fiction imagine an array of possible futures—from bright to dystopian—and different permutations of what's in store for us as a species.

The Best of Galaxy's Edge (Magazine) 2013-2014
Edited by Mike Resnick

ISBN 978-1-61242-236-7, 246 Pages, Trade Paperback 6” x 9”

Whether it’s God walking into the Draco Tavern, stony spirits talking to relatives, a robot plotting the ultimate murder, or the ability to see distinct patterns in the vibrations caused by uttering words and phrases … these stories will entertain you, make you laugh, make you think and, most importantly, make you question your own long-held views on life, the universe and everything else.

The stories in this volume have been personally selected by Mike Resnick as his favorites among those that were published in Galaxy’s Edge magazine in 2013 and 2014.  Authors include seasoned veterans such as Larry Niven and Mercedes Lackey, newcomers such as Andrea G. Stewart and Tina Gower, and writers from lands far and wide such as Sabina Theo from Bulgaria and Leena Likitalo from Finland.

But all the stories have one thing in common: They are great stories … and like all great stories, need great readers.
 


The Best of Hal Clement
Edited by Lester Del Rey

ISBN 978-1-61242-246-6 , 370 Pages, Trade Paperback 6” x 9”

Hal Clement, one of the all-time greats of science fiction, was defining hard science fiction before such distinctions were even being thought of.  He once described his approach to writing: “[T]he rules must be quite simple. They are; for the reader of a science-fiction story, they consist of finding as many as possible of the author’s statements or implications which conflict with the facts as science currently understands them. For the author, the rule is to make as few such slips as he possibly can.”

He was named a Grand Master by the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America in 1999 and an annual award for Excellence in Children’s Science Fiction has been established in his memory and is presented each year at the annual Worldcon.

This collection presents some of his finest shorter pieces as collected by his friend and colleague, Lester del Rey.
