"Along with a critical essay by Orson Scott Card reassessing science fiction in the twentieth century, Masterpieces includes short fiction by writers who have forged a permanent place for science fiction in the popular culture of today ... and tomorrow. It offers a glimpse of the greatest works that mixed science with fiction in trying to figure out humanity's place in the universe. Featuring bold, brave, and breathtaking stories, this definitive collection will stand the test of time in both this century and those to come."--Back cover.
An anthology of science fiction tales from the past century includes both classic and contemporary works by Anne McCaffrey, Arthur C. Clarke, Ursula K. Le Guin, Robert A. Heinlein, Isaac Asimov, and other masters of the science fiction genre.
