Synopsis

From multiple award-winning author David Brin comes this extraordinary collection of tales and essays of the near and distant future, as humans and aliens encounter the secrets of the cosmos--and of their own existence.

In "Dr. Pak's Preschool" a woman discovers that her baby has been called upon to work while still in the womb.

In "NatuLife" a married couple finds their relationship threatened by the wonders of sex by simulation.

In "Sshhh..." the arrival of benevolent aliens on Earth leads to frenzy, madness... and unimaginable joy.

In "Bubbles" a sentient starcraft reaches the limits of the universe--and dares to go beyond.

These are but a few of the challenging speculations in Otherness, from the pen of an author whose urgent and compelling imaginative fiction challenges us to wonder at the shape and the nature of the universe--as well as at its future.
