Editors Note 1 The author of Innocents Abroad presents a follow-up collection of twenty-five primarily science fiction stories, in a volume that includes such tales as "Viewpoint," "Petting Zoo," and "Empires of Foliage and Flower." Reprint. 10,000 first printing.
Editors Note 2 Gene Wolfe follows his acclaimed all-fantasy short story collection, Innocents Aboard, with a volume devoted primarily to his science fiction. The twenty-five stories here amply demonstrate his range, excellence, and mastery of the form. A few tantalizing samples: |"Viewpoint" takes on the unreality of so-called "reality" TV and imagines such a show done truly for real, with real guns. "Empires of Foliage and Flower" is in the classic Book of the New Sun series. "Golden City Far." is about dreams, high school, and finding love, which Wolfe says "is about as good a recipe for a story as I've ever found." You're sure to agree.|
