Summary (From the publisher):

Orbit is the oldest and most respected continuing series of original science fiction and fantasy stories published today. In its diversity, vitality, and overall excellence, this edition, the nineteenth, more than lives up to the high standards set in previous volumes.

Here are intriguing new stories by such well-known and admired writers as Gene Wolfe, R.A. Lafferty, and Kate Wilhelm (whose work has appeared in all but two Orbit volumes). Present, also, are relative newcomers like Michael Conner, Phillip Teich, and Michael W. McClintock. Some stories are poignant, some delightfully bizarre and eerie, some mind-boggling. Together these stories maintain the impressive range of feeling, insight, and style which readers can expect to find in this series.

Complete with Damon Knight's lively, informal notes about the authors, Orbit 19 is a first-class volume for lovers of fine, unconventional short fiction.
