Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“This strong collection by SFWA Grand Master Bova achieves an unusually satisfying fusion of varied settings with a consistent humane vision…Bova melds typical otherworldly locales with the resonance of traditional human themes.” Publishers Weekly
“It hardly needs proving that Bova is as effective with shorter fiction as he is with novels. The fourteen stories here range widely in subject, from virtual reality to asteroid mining to golf courses on the moon…Altogether, a whole tray full of treats.” Booklist
