The Book of Silverberg
A parade float-building competition gets out of hand. A mind reader meets an old man who used to share her ability. In a world where everyone wears tech-assisted rose-colored glasses, a woman is forced to confront the world as it truly is. A team of terraformers deal with the unexpected consequences of their work during the search for a missing crewmate. Chimps care for the people left behind by humanity’s leap beyond physical form.
Imagine being invited to contribute to a favorite author’s fictional world, to tell a story in a land you first encountered long ago, one that inspired and moved you. The Book of Silverberg is a collection of stories by some of sci-fi’s biggest and brightest names, all of whom received that very special invitation. And whether they added something new to an established story, continued a finished piece with what came next, or tried to get to the heart of the Silverberg phenomenon itself, these authors brought their A-game.
I would recommend familiarizing yourself with Silverberg’s work before picking this one up, if only to get the most from each story. But even if you don’t, you’ll find something to enjoy in The Book of Silverberg.
