Product Description

Product Description

This volume, covering the period from the 1890s to the future, includes stories from founding fathers of the field like H. G. Wells and C. S. Lewis; beloved mainstays of the genre, such as Philip Jose Farmer, Roger Zelazny and Jack Vance; notable female writers, including Nancy Kress, and authors like Bruce Sterling, William Gibson and James Morrow, who have hit their stride in the last two decades. Also featured are those widely recognised outside the genre, the celebrated writing of E. M. Forster and Michael Shaara, as well as translations of foreign writers’ formative work including that of Wolfgang Jeschke and Dino Buzzati.

About the Author

David G. Hartwell, World Fantasy Award-winning editor and anthologist, and a senior editor at Tor Books, has twice before redefined a genre - first, the horror field with The Dark Descent and, second, with hard SF in The Ascent of Wonder.

By Blue Tyson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
A fine collection of stories, and Hartwell even includes a few of non-English origin, which is a nice bonus. These Mammoth books are generally good value it seems.

Joker fan not keen on digital watches, but does quite like a jelly bean.

3.5 out of 5

Fire walking is not for amateurs, and pretending to be a god is chancy without the whole invulnerability and immortality thing. Having secret galaxy shaping masters is more of a mental injury, though.

3.5 out of 5

Super Australian fish ship's Serpent journey.

4 out of 5

Time travel profiteering problematic.

3.5 out of 5

Interesting discovery a long way off.

3 out of 5

Rat killing means ex-men, even if only in the mind, and the unmoderated female influence ain't much fun at all.

Existence denial goes down easier with beer.

Genocidal possibility is troubling, even if not real.
