This outstanding collection of stories by one of science fiction’s premier talents spans the length and breadth of history and the universe while exploring thought-provoking new ideas and dilemmas. From the Baghdad of The Arabian Nights to a vast interstellar empire thousands of years in the future, from the Vatican to a one-man vessel drifting in the vast emptiness of the asteroid belt, from virtual reality duels to the subtle intricacies of time travel and a golf tournament on the moon, here are tales of scoundrels and heroes, scientists and explorers, aliens and artificial intelligences, and even a young Albert Einstein. Each of them stands at the border of a new frontier and must venture out into unexplored territory—thanks to the limitless imagination of Ben Bova.

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
