9780007134045: Vinland the Dream: And Other Stories

A new collection of stories including previously unpublished material from the author of the seminal MARS series.

Kim Stanley Robinson is one of science fiction’s outstanding stylists and storytellers. His award-winning short fiction shows off his versatility and talent. This new collection brings together fifteen memorable stories, some of them never before published.

Peopled by characters that speak to us directly, and illuminated by reflections that are timeless and haunting, the stories explore different pasts and divergent futures. They revolve around questions of history and meaning, and how what we know about the past influences the way we look at the present and the future.

The stories so far are: ‘Discovering Life’, ‘Venice Drowned’, ‘Mercurial’ ‘Ridge Running’, ‘The Disguise’, ‘The Lucky Strike’, ‘Coming Back to Dixieland’, ‘Stone Eggs’, ‘Black Air’, ’”A History of the Twentieth Century, with Illustrations”’, ‘Remaking History’, ‘Vinland the Dream’, ‘Muir on Shaster’, ‘A Sensitive Dependence on Initial Conditions’.

Review:

From reviews of the Mars Trilogy

‘One of the landmarks of American literature’ TLS

‘The ultimate in future history’ Daily Mail

From the Back Cover:

"One of the finest short story writers around."
Locus

These fourteen memorable tales of alternate pasts and possible futures, including a new story on a Martian theme, demonstrate the versatility and range of Kim Stanley Robinson's literary talent. In elegant prose he tells of an elaborate archaeological hoax; what happened when Enola Gay crashed on a routine exercise, before in could drop the bomb on Hiroshima; a Dixieland revival in the far reaches of the galaxy; a confrontation with eternity atop a snowy Californian mountain…

Peopled by diverse characters whose experiences speak to us directly, the stories revolve around questions of history and meaning, leaving us to reflect on how what we know about the past influences the way we look at the present and the future.

"The ultimate in future history."
