Welcome to Space: Complete Short Fiction Volume 2 – thirteen short stories, each with an introduction giving context, anecdotes, and a glimpse into the life of Hugo and Nebula Award-winning author Robert J. Sawyer. This is the second of three volumes collecting all his short fiction.
Here are science fiction, fantasy, and horror stories from the downside of Utopia to the upside of murdering computers, from a war memorial in space to never-ending night, plus:
- An alien ship crashes in Sudbury
- A priest investigates a miracle on Mars
- Recovering the body of a dead cosmonaut
- First-ever publication of “Motive,” a planetarium show produced in 1980
- And (spoiler alert) maybe chickens weren’t meant to fly…
