Cosmic Journeys: The Collected Works of Devin Barber is just that. Five short stories and three novellas are combined in this single volume that will take the reader on a journey of adventure, mystery, and through an exploration of scientific possibilities and the human heart. From an exploration of evolutionary possibilities in "Adam" to the universal fantasy of having your own space craft in "The Ship," Cosmic Journeys is a work of science fiction literature that strives to bring the reader science fiction based on real, hard science giving it the feel of actually being possible. And the aliens are never just humanoids in silly masks. Cosmic Journeys is a book written in the tradition that today's science fiction is tomorrow's science fact.
