More About This Book

Overview

Stranded time travelers. Alien archeologists. Angst-ridden robots. And a universe-saving songwriter named… Randy Newman. (Really.) You'll meet them all (and more) between the covers of What We Still Talk About, gathering Scott Edelman's best science fiction short stories from the past thirty years.

Visit our eventual robot children, for whom we have become nothing more than a myth, as they struggle to understand what it means to be made of flesh.

Travel with the last man on the Moon as he gets a chance to restore Earth's space-faring future. (But at what cost?)

And discover squabbling posthumans so powerful they can rebuild planets on a whim… but are clueless when it comes to mending a broken heart.

When tomorrow finally comes, these eleven tales will be What We Still Talk About.
