Stars: Original Stories Based on the Songs of Janis Ianby Janis Ian (Editor), Mike Resnick (Editor), Gabrielle De Cuir (Read by), Emily Rankin (Read by), Stefan Rudnicki (Read by)
Stars is a truly unique undertaking, and an intensely personal one as well. It was born at the 2001 World Science Fiction Convention, but it was a birth that might never have occurred if not for a series of fortuitous events. The first was Janis Ian's visit to her friend Anne McCaffrey. It was there that she heard about the existence of Worldcon, the annual science fiction convention at which authors, editors, artists, and dedicated readers gather every year. Anne insisted that Janis, an avid science fiction reader since the age of seven, had to attend a Worldcon. But it was not until Janis began an e-mail correspondence with Mike Resnick that Stars became as inevitable as the fact that the sun rises each morning. It was Mike who lured Janis to the 2001 convention, and Mike who began introducing her to many of the writers whose work she had adored for decades. When Janis discovered that these writers were as enamored of her music as she was of their writing, what could be more exciting a creative venture than to meld these two universes into one?
