About this title

Synopsis:

From the front flap: "A million years from now...It's a span of time so staggeringly huge that it's hard for the human mind to grasp. Even within science fiction, to conjure up a convincing portrait of what humanity might be like in such a remote future call for a breadth of vision and literacy skill rare among writers. The SFBC and 15-time Hugo winner Gardner Dozois are pleased to say that the writers gathered here have met the challenge. These daring visionaries provide some of the most vivid, evocative, mind-stretching entertainment you're likely to find: six original novellas that imagine life in 'One Million A.D.' - a time so far ahead that the human race and the Earth itself will have radically changed, and all that we know faded into legend.....if remembered at all. In Robert Reed's 'Good Mountain', a group of refugees riding in the belly of a worm try to outrun the poisonous eruptions that are incinerating the world. Picturing an Earth newly emerged from a centuries-long winter, Robert Silverberg follows an archaeologist and her lover to 'A Piece of the Great World' - a tragic band of survivors from a race long thought extinct. In 'Mirror Image', Nancy Kress imagines a clone family who investigates their sister's destruction of a star system - and reveals a wholly unexpected menace. Gathering for a celebration of their adventures, members of an immortal line of supermen uncover a conspiracy of galactic proportions in Alistair Reynolds' 'Thousandth Night'. In 'Middle Gap'. Charles Stross takes us to a Cold War Earth mysteriously transferred to a giant disc in the Magellanic Clouds - one of many alien continents whose shattered geographies both the U.S. and the U.S.S.R. are determined to explore - to their ultimate peril. Greg Egan's 'Riding the Crocodile' tells of a couple who - after 10,000 years of marriage in which they've exhausted every worthwhile experience - are ready to end their lives, but not before they attempt one last hurrah."
