The universe shifts and changes: suddenly you understand, you get it, and are filled with wonder. That moment of understanding drives the greatest SF stories and lies at the heart of Engineering Infinity.
Whether it’s coming up hard against the speed of light and, with it, the enormity of the universe, realising that terraforming a distant world is harder and more dangerous than you’d ever thought, or simply realizing that a hitchhiker on a starship consumes fuel and oxygen with tragic results, it’s hard science-fiction where sense of discovery is most often found and where science-fiction’s true heart lies.
Jonathan Strahan, described by New York Times bestselling author Sean Williams as “one of the most respected editors in the genre,” won the 2010 World Fantasy Award for best anthology editor. In Engineering Infinity, he collects fourteen new stories right on the bleeding edge of hard SF, by some of the biggest and best-regarded authors going, including Charles Stross, Stephen Baxter, Gwyneth Jones, and Kristine Kathryn Rusch.
“Brings the good old sense of wonder back to SF.”
-Eric Brown, author of Helix and Engineman
