Abstract:

"Enter into the world of the future where human potential is fulfilled to hitherto unexpected and unexplored dimensions. Here are nine fantastic stories that run the gamut of ultimate imagination: A young woman whose mental condition makes her think the world is all wonderful; a time when space travelers from Earth are all female and cloned; the decision to destroy Ana; a fairy tale of tomorrow, of the Sidhe, beyond death under the waters of the lake. Also included are marvelous tales of the dynamic directions that 'thought experiments' have taken; the discovery of a new home for the human race - after the holocaust, a time when electronic secrets must be traded for food; the search for the beginning of the world; and a society where test-tube babies have three mothers who can be female or male."
