English | Science Fiction | ePUB, MOBI, AZW3 | 1.3 Mb
A collection of science fiction classics edited and introduced by the winner of fifteen Hugo awards for best editor, Gardner Dozois.
From the introduction:
Here is life on another world, in another place, another time. Here is what it is like to wear an alien skin. Here are new concepts, new vistas, magic. . . "Why read science fiction?" It’s alive in a world of dead art, dead minds, dead institutions; it’s a bright-eyed, irreverent little animal scurrying through a petrified landscape of old dead trees; it’s unashamedly potent and prolific in a world that grows increasingly weary and sterile; it dares to raise its voice in boisterous joy, sorrow, and anger in a place full of sour silence and dead echoes.
"A fine idea for an anthology – ‘adventures in otherness’ is really what SF is all about, isn’t it? – and the stories . . . are a very neat mixture of themes and literary methods, and of course a bunch of very fine examples of first-class narrative prose . . .an artful and elegant group, intelligently chosen."—Robert Silverberg
