Review:

Kim Stanley Robinson has long been known for his excellent science fiction novels such as Red Mars, Blue Mars, and Green Mars. Here he turns his hand toward editing, with a collection of stories by writers like Ursula K. Le Guin, Gene Wolfe, Pat Murphy, and Terry Bisson. These are stories of a future where "wet" technology has replaced "hard": silicon chips have given way to DNA strands, and the industrial high tech has been subsumed by environmental high tech. While all of these fine stories have been printed elsewhere, collected together they comprise a formidable and fascinating look at a future full of ectopias.

About the Author:

Kim Stanley Robinson was born in 1952. A native Californian, he is the author of the Nebula Award-winning Red Mars and several other highly regarded SF novels, including his acclaimed Three Californias trilogy.
