Abstract:

This is a collection of stories and reflections on politics, business, war, and the current state of space exploration. What you are about to read deals with the stars, the wide galactic future that lies at our fingertips today ... both factual articles and fictional stories. In a world where robots are causing human unemployment, spaceflight is so commonplace the news media regard it as dull, and science fiction has become a mainstay of the bestseller lists ... nonfiction has become just as exciting as the fiction. So here are a dozen and a half views of the world, past present and future, as seen through the Astral Mirror.
