Old Venus edited by George R. R. Martin and Gardner Dozois For Bob Walters and Tess Kissinger, who would love to paint the wallowing dinosaurs of swampy Venus Introduction Return to Venusport by Gardner Dozois DAWN ON VENUS: The sleek, furry heads of the web-footed amphibious Venusians break water near one of the rare archipelagos in the world-girdling ocean. Nearby, the toothy head and long, snaky neck of a Plesiosaur-like sea creature momentarily rears above the waves. Elsewhere, vast swamps ...

At the front of the dimly lit conference room, the portly, gray-haired director of the Sahara Institute of Technology paced back and forthstaring at the ceiling with his hands clasped behind his backwhile he pontificated ponderously on a subject he clearly barely understood. At least thats how Dennis Nuel saw it, suffering in silence in one of ...

Thor Meets Captain America by David Brin 1 Lokis dwarf rolled its eyes and moaned pitifully as the sub levelled off at periscope depth. With stubby fingers the gnarled, neckless creature pulled at its yellow-stained beard and stared up at the creaking pipes. A thing of dark forest depths and hidden caves, Chris Turing thought as he watched the dwarf. It wasnt meant for this place. Only men would choose such a way to die, in a leaking steel coffin, on a hopeless attempt to blow up Valhalla. But ...

The River of Time by David Brin I dont think anyone knows exactly when it began. It seemed a fatal disease, at first. Dozens, possibly hundreds, were buried or cremated before the ComaSlow epidemic was recognized for what it was. It was a pseudodeath that struck without warning. There was no precursor, no symptom that gave any clue to its coming. Its victims were often found in bed, apparently asleep, yet rigid and unrousable. They were discovered on sidewalks, vacant-eyed and poised ...

We believe the divine energy would pervade nature to a degree unknown in the history of former ages, and that no discordant collision, but a ravishing harmony of spheres, would ensue.

Hamilton stared gloomily at the parade as the robot taxi changed lanes, neatly dodging the brightly clad celebrants. Bloody damn boring ritual clubs, Hamilton muttered to himself. This one seemed to have a Middle Eastern theme, the marchers stepping along to recorded tambourines. Banners ...

For days Ive hardly slept, dreading the dreams that have come back eyes in the sky and a fiery mountainside. Even as I stand here, this damned day keeps throwing memories at me, like soggy rags dragged out of a pile of old discarded clothesthings I thought Id buried away for good. Right now, for ...
