HELP WANTED:

Position open for goal-oriented professional.  Must be willing to work in zero gravity.  MAY THE WORK-FORCE BE WITH YOU.

In this all-new, original anthology, today's top sf talents tackle tomorrow's jobs-in space and beyond.  Each story in this intriguing collection begins with a Want Ad-and ends up revealing a space-age working world of headhunters, applicants, bosses, and employees.  So punch the timeclock-and get to work...

It's not just a job.  It's the future.

 

Synopsis:

Fourteen tales of the challenges, perils, and responsibilities that workers of the future may have to face while out in space. Includes original stories by such top science fiction authors as James A. Gardner, Josepha Sherman, Robert J. Sawyer, and Alison Sinclair. Original.

About the Author

Biologist Julie E. Czerneda's science fiction has received international acclaim, awards, and best-selling status. She is the author of the popular "Species Imperative" trilogy, the "Web Shifters" series, the "Trade Pact Universe" trilogy and her new "Stratification" novels. She was a finalist for the John W. Campbell Award for Best New Writer. Her stand-alone novel, In the Company of Others, won Canada's Prix Aurora Award and was a finalist for the Philip K. Dick Award for Distinguished SF. Julie lives with her husband and two children in the lake country of central Ontario, under skies so clear they could take seeing the Milky Way for granted, but never do.
