Synopsis

Kim Stanley Robinson has been an ongoing force in the Science Fiction genre for over twenty years, with his novels (Year’s of Rice and Salt, Forty Signs of Rain) crossing over to the mainstream, and routinely appearing on the New York Times best sellers list. During the 80s and early nineties, his short fiction continued to push the boundaries of science fiction, defining the science-focused side of the science fiction genre.

Award-winning editor Jonathan Strahan worked with Kim Stanley Robinson to select the stories that make up this landmark volume. In addition to these reprints, The Best of Kim Stanley Robinson features a brand-new short story, "The Timpanist of the Berlin Philharmonic, 1942."

Robinson's award-winning novels (the Mars Trilogy, Galileo's Dream) often unjustly overshadow his brilliant short stories, an error that this impressive collection will do much to correct.

Strange Horizons

(Plus it would have been nice to have at least one story in the collection with a female protagonist, just for a change of pace.) To be clear the two Mars stories that we do get are two of the best stories in the book.
