By the next century, one blue alien may stand on the shores of Earth holding a skull in the wreck we've made of this once beautiful planet and say, "I knew them once. A fair race, a proud race."

Features short fiction by Margaret Atwood, Italo Calvino, Wanda Coleman, Ursula K. Le Guin, Kate Noonan, and Terry Wolverton.
