   schema:description ""VOLUME 1 IN A STERLING COLLECTION OF STORIES FROM LEGENDARY HARD SCIENCE FICTION MASTER BEN BOVA. Selected stories from Bova's amazing career at the center of science fiction and space advocacy. He is the creator of the New York Times best-selling Grand Tour science fiction series, a six time Hugo award winner, and past president of the National Space Society. Volume #1 of 3 of the very best of Ben Bova, a grand master of science fiction storytelling. These stories span the five decades of Bova's incandescent career. Here are tales of star-faring adventure, peril, and drama. Here are journeys into the mind-bending landscapes of virtual worlds and alternate realities. Here you'll also find stories of humanity's astounding future on Earth, on Mars, and in the Solar System beyond--stories that always get the science right. And Bova's gathering of deeply realized, totally human characters are the heroic, brave, tricky, sometimes dastardly engineers, astronauts, corporate magnates, politicians, and scientists who will make these futures possible--and those who often find that the problems of tomorrow are always linked to human values, and human failings, that are as timeless as the stars. About the award-winning stories and novels of Ben Bova: "Technically accurate and absorbing."--Kirkus "[Bova is] the science fiction author who will have the greatest effect on the world."--Ray Bradbury "A masterful storyteller"--Vector "Gives a good read while turning your eyes to what might be in the not so distant future, just like Clarke and Asimov used to do so well."--SFX About Mars, Inc., by Ben Bova.: ".perfectly enjoyable as an SF book (could Bova write anything that wasn't enjoyable?), Mars, Inc. has that torn-from-the-headline vibe that's obviously intended for a larger audience. the bottom line? Mars, Inc. has inspiration, excitement, thrills, romance, a dash of satire--and is a good, fun read."--Analog "The Hugo winner returns to his most."@en ;
