Description

Truly successful science fiction does two things: it gives credible glimpses into the future while entertaining the reader. With this in mind, noted anthologist Jonathan Strahan?who is also the reviews editor of "Locus" magazine?asked sixteen of today's most inventive, compelling writers to look past the horizon of the present day. Neil Gaiman ("Anansi Boys"), Kelly Link ("Magic for Beginners"), Garth Nix (the Abhorsen Trilogy), Scott Westerfeld ("Uglies; Pretties; Specials") and their colleagues have crafted a dazzling range of stories. Whether on spaceships, in suburbia, or in simulated gaming worlds, whether about cloning, battle tactics, or corporate politics, the stories of "The Starry Rift" will give every reader something to consider. This original anthology is crucial reading for those who want to see where the future?and the future of science fiction?is headed.
