[From the dust jacket:] "Seventeen hard science fiction stories by today's top authors. Hard science fiction is the literature of change, rigorously examining the impact--both beneficial and dangerous--of science and technology on humanity, the future, and the cosmos. As science advances, expanding our knowledge of the universe, astounding new frontiers in storytelling open up as well. In Carbide Tipped Pens, more than a dozen of today's most creative imaginations explore these frontiers, carrying on the grand tradition of such legendary masters as Isaac Asimov, Robert A. Heinlein, and John W. Campbell, while bringing hard science fiction into the twenty-first century by extrapolating from the latest scientific developments and discoveries. Ranging from ancient China to the outer reaches of the solar system, this outstanding collection of stories, written by an international roster of authors, finds wonder, terror, and gripping human drama in topics as diverse as space exploration, artificial intelligence, biotechnology, climate change, alternate history, the search for extraterrestrial intelligence, interplanetary war, and even the future of baseball. From tattoos that treat allergies to hazardous missions to Mars and beyond, from the end of the world to the furthest limits of human invention, Carbide Tipped Pens turns startling new ideas into state-of-the-art science fiction. Includes stories by Doug Beason, Gregory Benford, Aliette de Bodard, Ben Bova, Eric Choi, David DeGraff, Carl Frederick, Nancy Fulda, Howard Hendrix, Liu Cixin (translated by Ken Liu), Jack McDevitt, Leah Petersen & Gabrielle Harbowy, Robert Reed, Kate Story, Dirk Strasser, Jean-Louis Trudel, and Daniel H.

[From the back cover:] "Who needs parents? Almost ten-and-a-half year old Kobie Roberts certainly doesn't need parents anymore. If only she were on her own, she could eat whatever she wanted. Stay up late. And never have to do her homework. So when Kobie's mother is in the hospital for a few weeks and a kind, elderly housekeeper named Mrs. Blevins is hired, Kobie figures this is her chance. She wears crazy clothes to school, eats strange breakfasts, and stays up (almost) all night. She even lives under a card-table tent in the living room, and Mrs. Blevens doesn't say a word. But Kobie begins to worry. Maybe with the efficient Mrs. Blevens taking her place, her mother can't come home. Well then, Kobie will just have to drive Mrs. Blevens away--for good!" You never know what to expect from creative, artistic, and strong willed Kobie, but there's bound to be trouble, confusion, laughs and surprises. Look for the other books about her in the bookshare collection including, #2 Going on Twelve, #3 Thirteen, #4 Fourteen and Holding and #5 Fiftteen at Last.
