Description

A soaring collection of stories from a modern master of science fiction.

What may we become? How will we endure? The future is a daunting realm, filled with real and imagined perils. So enter it prepared! 

Here are vivid tales about possible tomorrows, from the keen eye and colorful pen of David Brin. Visit a chillingly plausible tomorrow when prisoners may be sent to asteroidal gulags. Or might prisons vanish and felons roam, seeing only what society allows? Suppose, amid lavish success, we gain the superpower to fly! Will we even appreciate it . . . or will we find new reasons to complain? In "Mars Opposition," you'll experience an alien invasion like no other, confronting humanity with a stark and terrible choice. On the other hand, might fantastically potent new beings emerge out of ourselves, as revealed in "Chrysalis”? 

Featuring guest appearances by Gregory Benford, Jules Verne, and Galileo, this reading adventure takes you beyond the very singularity in “Stones of Significance,” pondering what could happen after humans are like gods. And “Reality Check” asks one of you readers – just one of you – to wake up! 

And in "Temptation," we make a novella-length return to the world of the Hugo winners STARTIDE RISING and THE UPLIFT WAR.

Tomorrow awaits. We can face it and prevail. So long as our stance is brave.

Discover potent visions of it in INSISTENCE OF VISION.

“David Brin excels at the essential craft of the page turning, which is to devise an elegantly knotted plot that yields a richly variegated succession of high-impact adventures undergone by an array of believably heroic characters.” 
– Entertainment Weekly

“David Brin is notable for unquenchable optimism, focusing on the ability of humanity to overcome adversity.” 
– Los Angeles Times Book Review
