About this title


Unique perspectives on technology, space, and aliens, and how they might affect humanity are explored in this compelling collection of short science fiction. In the title story, a near-future is examined in which an eight-year-old at the time of the loss of the Apollo 8 grows into a wealthy pioneer that devotes his life to recovering the capsule and its crew. In The Strangeness of the Day” a shy, successful lawyer is hired by a near immortal to battle a witch to save his love, while suicide bombings are taken to a new, horrifying level, with the bombers chosen at birth in Craters.” A large pile of bones that do not seem to be human or animal is discovered at a renovation of a resort in The End of the World,” while an alternate history of the death and dark secrets of J. Edgar Hoover are imagined in G-Men.” Rounding off this fascinating compilation is a novella in which salvaging a 5,000-year-old spaceship is neither easy nor without dangers. This stunning compendium brings some of the most prestigious work from a prolific and visionary author into a single, essential volume.
