"Collection of thirteen tales set in a wide variety of microscopic realms"
Fans of movies like Fantastic Voyage or The Incredible
Shrinking Man/Woman will appreciate this collection of
thirteen tales set in a wide variety of microscopic
realms. Each tale is unique, but share in common that the
perspective of micro is in the eye of the beholder. Using
advances in physics that make the previously mentioned
movies seem dated; the anthology furbishes the audience
with delightful tales that run the gamut from micro-
creator to sentient atoms. Besides strong interesting
tales, the key to the collection is that these tiny worlds
seem real due to physical symmetry in their design, no
mean feat for any contribution let alone a Baker's dozen.
Fans of existing acceptable state of the science in their
fiction will appreciate each contribution that not only
provides effective insight into current theories and
knowledge of inner space, but also does so within powerful
tales that makes these realms seem so real.
Award-winning author and scientist Gregory Benford has
collected all-new, hard-science stories about miniature
universes of every imaginable kind. These 13 stories will
open portals into unforgettable universes that exist within
or outside our own.
With stories by Stephen Baxter, Pamela Sargent, Robert J.
Sawyer Robert Sheckley, George Zebrowski, and other
