Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“A pleasing sampling of stories, all showing the range found even within a subgenre like hard sf.” Library Journal
“A science fiction anthology that strikes a balance between radical scientific ideas and grounded human emotion…Hard-core sci-fi fans will gobble this up, and readers newer to the genre should give it a chance, too.” Kirkus Reviews
