Edge of Infinity

by

Contains "The Girl-Thing Who Went Out for Sushi" by Pat Cadigan, which won the Hugo Award for Best Novelette (2013) and the Locus Award for SF Best Novelette (2013).

"One giant leap for mankind". Those were Neil Armstrong's immortal words when he became the first human being to step onto another world. All at once, the horizon expanded; the human race was no longer Earthbound.

Our destiny would now be to reach out to eternity. Brought to you by the creators of Engineering Infinity, Edge of Infinity is an exhilarating new SF anthology that looks at the next giant leap for humankind: the leap from our home world out into the Solar System. From the eerie transformations in Pat Cadigan's The Girl-Thing Who Went Out for Sushi to the frontier spirit of Sandra McDonald and Stephen D. Covey's The Road to NPS, and from the grandiose vision of Alastair Reynolds' Vainglory to the workaday familiarity of Kristine Kathryn Rusch's Safety Tests, the thirteen stories in this anthology span the whole of the human condition in their race to colonise Earth's nearest neighbours.

    An anthology of stories that I bought, and read, pretty much on the basis of the James S.A. Corey story, Drive. I'm loving Corey's Expanse series but I'm reading them faster than he's writing them, so...
