Summary (From the publisher):

"Hard" science fiction -- SF that takes known scientific principles as its starting point -- is, for many readers, the durable core of the field. But it is also accused, of being, as Greg Bear puts it, "a restrictive genre without a soul." Here, Nebula Award winner Bear puts forth the counterargument: an original collection of new SF tales from the cutting edge of the field, each an example of "science fiction with a great soul."
