After our long enclosure in the crimson interior of the huge living ship, it was like being reborn. Even though I had to share this adventure with LEesh, my spirits surged. Pretty system, LEesh said. He was piloting the flitter with nonchalant ease. He was about sixty years old, some three times my age, a lot more experiencedand he didnt miss a chance to let me know. Well, pretty it ...

She stared at a wall, which showed the magnified image of an impossibly beautiful young man crooning into an old-fashioned microphone. Impossible, yes he was a synth-star, a distillation of the inchoate longings of subteen girls. My God, he looks like Alexander the Great. Bisesa could barely take her eyes off the walls moving colors, its ...

Transcendent by Stephen Baxter ONE The girl from the future told me that the sky is full of dying worlds. You can spot them from far off, if you know what youre looking for. When a star gets old it heats up, and its planets oceans evaporate, and you can see the clouds of hydrogen and oxygen, slowly dispersing. Dying worlds cloaked in the remains of their oceans, hanging in the Galaxys spiral arms like rotten fruit: this is what people will find, when they move out from the Earth, in the future. ...
