- Long Synopsis:
- From the book jacket: In the tradition of other groundbreaking Norton anthologies, Ursula K. Le Guin and Brian Attebery's Norton Book of Science Fiction provides the first truly comprehensive and coherent look at the best of contemporary science fiction. Its 67 stories, all published since 1960, offer compelling evidence that science fiction is the source of the most thoughtful, imaginative-indeed, literary- fiction being written today. Aficionados will find rarely anthologized gems by their favorite authors-Poul Anderson, Margaret Atwood, Octavia Butler, Samuel R. Delany, Philip K. Dick, William Gibson, Joanna Russ, Theodore Sturgeon, James Tiptree, Jr., Gene Wolfe, Roger Zelazny-as well as startling work by today's rising stars. Newcomers will delight in the sophisticated range of voices probing the nature of reality and the condition of the human spirit. And readers of all stripes will enjoy Ms. Le Guin's robust and insightful introduction. As the new millennium approaches we look to our great writers to provide the bridge between past and present, between what is today and what will be in the future. Those writers are these. Their stories-and thus this anthology-will be a source of exhilaration and illumination for years to come.
