Including authors such as Clifford Simak, Harry Harrison, Bruce Sterling, A. E. Van Vogt and Brian Aldiss himself, these stories portray struggles against machines, epic journeys, genetic experiments, time travellers and alien races. From stories set on Earth, to uncanny far distant worlds and ancient burnt-out suns, the one constant is humanity itself, compelled by an often fatal curiosity to explore the boundless frontiers of time, space and probability.Thirty short stories and a novella, first published in Penguin Modern Classics November 2007 with a cover illustration by Jim Burns. The new stories are:• James Tiptree, Jr : And I Awoke and Found Me Here on the Cold Hills Side• Bruce Sterling : Swarm• Greg Bear : Blood Music• Fredric Brown : Answer• Kim Stanley Robinson : Sexual Dimorphism• Eliza Blair : Friends in Need• James Inglis : Night Watch• Ted Chiang : Story of Your Life• Garry Kilworth : Alien Embassy• John Crowley : Great Work of Time
