Summary (From the publisher):

SCIENCE FICTION AT THE MAX

Extreme science fiction means what it says. SF is at its best when it's pushing the boundaries, beyond what we would normally think or even dream, and taking us into worlds we might never imagine.

Here twenty of today's greatest science Fiction creators take us on journeys of vast imaginings, from the simplest of beginnings to the most complex of finalities.

What happens

  • when inanimate objects are given the gift of life
  • when there's an error in the universe and it tries to correct itself
  • when we break out of the universe and discover the creator
  • when a machine creates a choice of alternate Christs
  • when a murder is committed in virtual reality
  • when an immortal ventures to the end of time
