Summary (From the publisher):

Will the conjectures in this anthology come about? Maybe - and maybe not.

But they haven't yet been proved untrue, and perhaps the best definition ever devised for science fiction is: fiction based on scientific speculation that has not been proved untrue.

The stuff science fiction deals with has often come true in the past. Perhaps that is because science fiction deals with the impractical solutions. The writers of this fascinating stuff know the problems and know what won't work. So they try to image the untried techniques, the impossible hypotheses. Their stock in trade is premature ideas.

Increasingly, with the advance of science and the application of time and work and money, the impossible becomes reality. Yesterday, the horse and buggy. Tomorrow, a vehicle to take men to the moon. The day after, travel in interstellar space, hundreds of thousands of light-years away.

So maybe the conjectures in this fascinating anthology will come true. In any event, you will have a very stimulating brain massage.
