Editorial Reviews

Review

''[The stories] are all eminently entertaining and very well-crafted, and together represent a worldview of optimism and triumph over adversity that was once considered synonymous with science fiction...A bridge between the oldest roots of SF and its twenty-first-century forms, still enjoyable and admirable.'' --Paul Di Filippo, Locus

''Ben Bova was my primary gateway to science fiction, and so many of these stories have been dear to me for as long as I've been a serious fan of science fiction -- and they've remained so after twenty years of being an editor. This volume is an ideal introduction to the works of this science fiction legend!'' --
John Joseph Adams, Hugo Award-winning editor of Best American Science Fiction and Fantasy and Lightspeed magazine

''Bova gets better and better, combining plausible science with increasingly complex fiction.'' --
Los Angeles Daily News

''The author's excellence at combining hard science with believable characters and an attention-grabbing plot makes him one of our most accessible and entertaining storytellers.'' --
Library Journal

''This book is the work of a gifted storyteller putting on a grand display of his versatility. Bova's fans will rejoice at this collection, and newcomers will find it a great introduction to the works of one of the grand masters of science fiction.'' --
Booklist (starred review)

''This collection of short stories features several standouts...This collection has something for all sf readers...Bova is one of the grand masters of the field, and this anthology reflects the breadth of his writing. Recommended for readers seeking an introduction to the author, and for libraries that do not own a more complete collection.'' --
Library Journal

''This is a great collection! I'd missed some of these.'' --
Larry Niven --This text refers to the audioCD edition.
