The Reinvented Heart

What happens when emotions like love and friendship span vast distances―in space, in time, and in the heart?

Science fiction often focuses on future technology and science without considering the ways social structures will change as tech changes―or not.

What stories emerge when we acknowledge possibilities of new genders and ways of thinking about them?...

Lest Darkness Fall & Timeless Tales Told

Lest Darkness Fall & Timeless Tales Told

Rarely do books greatly influence a genre as Lest Darkness Fall has had on science fiction. Frequently quoted as one of the “favorite” books of many of the masters of the field, this book by L. Sprague de Camp helped establish time-travel as a solid sub-genre of science fiction. An indication of the influence and longevity of the book is the number of best-selling writers who have written stories in direct response to, or been influenced by, Lest Darkness Fall. This new volume includes three such stories by Frederik Pohl, David Drake, and S. M....
