Anywhere, Anywhen: Stories of Tomorrow

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


This anthology of stories about the future, edited by Sylvia Engdahl, is intended for teens who don’t ordinarily read science fiction rather than for SF fans, and is not meant to be an introduction to that genre. It focuses on the timeless aspects of being human, and aims to suggest ideas about the future in a way that those who prefer real-life settings to strange, “far-out” ones will enjoy. Contributors include Sylvia Engdahl, Shirley Rousseau Murphy, Carol Farley, Rick Roberson, Robert Pierik, and Mildred Butler, all of whom are established authors of children’s or Young Adult fiction. In this expanded edition, two stories from Engdahl and Roberson’s previous anthology "Universe Ahead" are included.

“For nonfans as well as readers of science fiction.” --Booklist

“The stories are well-written, deeply thought out and a pleasure to read.” --Sunday Advocate, Baton Rouge, Louisiana

“The stories deal with tomorrow, but also with people.” --The Oregonian, Portland, Oregon

“A interesting look at what it might mean to grow up in tomorrow’s world.” --Children’s Books of the Year, Child Study Press, New York

“Roberson’s quick moving, easy style, the nicely delineated characters, and the provocative themes make ‘The Astoria Incident’ a success.” --Delap’s F & SF Review

“And then there is that superb story ‘The Beckoning Trail’ by Sylvia Engdahl and Rick Roberson in which a few of the crew members are able to comprehend the alien species which had signaled Earth. . . . Somewhat similar to 2001: A Space Odyssey, with a final act of courage and abandon, the more sensitive and accepting members of the group allow themselves to become consciously involved in the alien form of communication and thus leave ordinary earthlings far behind.” --The World of Children’s Books, University of Alberta
