Summary (From the publisher):

From the publisher

In novels like Mars and Welcome to Moonbase, Jupiter, and Saturn; and Privateers, The Precipice and The Rock Rats, Ben Bova has been telling the stories of the wars and rivalries, the outsized individuals, public crusades, and private passions that will drive us as we expand into the Solar System and make use of its vast resources. And throughout, Bova has shown our cosmic neighborhod as we know it to be, giving us a sense of Venus and Jupiter and the Asteroid Belt and Mars that's as up-to-date as the latest observations. For the last two decades have been a golden age of near Earth astronomyand observations, and in his novels Bova has made dramatic use of our newest knowledge.

But during that time Bova has also written short fiction about some of the same events and characters - Sam Gun, Martin Humphries, Lars Fuchs, Dan Randolph, the Asteroid Wars. Now in Tales from the Grand Tour, these stories are collected in book form for the first time, creating a volume that is a landmark of modern SF.
