The Collected Stories of Vernor Vinge Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Since his first published story, "Apartness," appeared in 1965, Vernor Vinge has forged a unique and awe-inspiring career in science fiction as his work has grown and matured. He is now one of the most celebrated science fiction writers in the field , having won the field's top award, the Hugo, for each of his last two novels.

Now, for the first time, this illustrious author gathers all his short fiction into a single volume. This collection is truly the definitive Vinge, capturing his visionary ideas at their very best. It also contains a never-before-published novella, one that represents precisely what this collection encapsulates--bold, unique, challenging science fictional ideas brought to vivid life with compelling storytelling.

Including such major pieces as "The Ungoverned" and "The Blabber," this sumptuous volume will satisfy any reader who loves the sense of wonder, and the excitement of great SF.

In the course of his long and extraordinary career, he has become widely known for his ability to blend adventure, emotion, and amazingly original science fiction concepts. A mathematician and computer scientist, Vinge is in continual demand to speak to academic and business groups about his insights in the area of artificial intelligence. He currently resides in San Diego, California.
