The first volume in a sterling collection of stories from legendary hard science fiction master Ben Bova.
These are selected stories from Bova's amazing career at the center of science fiction and space advocacy. He is the creator of the New York Times best-selling Grand Tour series, a six-time Hugo Award winner, and past president of the National Space Society. The very best of Ben Bova, these stories span the five decades of Bova's incandescent career.
Here are tales of star-faring adventure, peril, and drama. Here are journeys into the mind-bending landscapes of virtual worlds and alternate realities. Here you'll also find stories of humanity's astounding future on Earth, on Mars, and in the solar system beyond - stories that always get the science right. And Bova's gathering of deeply realized, totally human characters are the heroic, brave, tricky, sometimes dastardly engineers, astronauts, corporate magnates, politicians, and scientists who will make these futures possible - and those who often find that the problems of tomorrow are always linked to human values and human failings, which are as timeless as the stars.

A tribute, not a gem

Short story is not Bova's strong side. This collection is more of a tribute to the author, but not a gem. There are a few stories that are interesting, and forewords give an interesting insight into them, but! But Bova is no Brin or Card. Card is ten times more dramatic, and Brin is ten times thicker with ideas.

Good writing is good reading, and, or listening.

Hi, Larry here.
I tell you true, no clunkers here. All the stories are good listening. Some grabbed me and wouldn't turn loose until the last words. Wow!
Grabbed by the vitals I hung clinging to my cliff as words flowed by. Some like that, great stuff, some good stuff, and no duds.
