Overview

In nineteen ventures into the future, Mark Rich moves from a moving moment during human-alien contact, in "Across the Sky" ... to madcap conflict between Human and Vegetable, in the antic "Foggery" ... to a vision of life in Venusian orbit, in "The Apples of Venus" — the story SF giant Robert Silverberg called "science fiction in the classic mode, a contemporary version of the sort of work that makes old-timers speak with warm nostalgia of John W. Campbell's famous magazine Astounding Science Fiction of fifty years ago.

I have never been a short story reader before but my friend Tereza being a big fan, I've recently started reading collections. I really enjoyed this collection. One of the blurbs on the back says that these stories have a "warmth and depth of spirit" that is uncommon in science fiction. I agree and think it is uncommon in any kind of fiction. I love the stories and I also enjoyed the short introductions Mark provides before each story...it gave me a sense of what the stories mean to him and of what it is like to be a science fiction story writer.
