Una colección editada por Orson Scott Card, un autor de sobra conocido, en particular por su saga de Ender -de la cual esta bien leerse el primer y como mucho el segundo libro, después cae en picado-

“[Masterpieces] provides an excellent case for science fiction as a literary form that matters.”

Science Fiction Weekly

In much of the science fiction of the past, the twenty-first centery existed only in writers’ imagination. Now that it’s here, it’s time to take a look back at the last one hundred years in science fiction through the works of the most celebrated and acclaimed authors of the century-to see where we¡ve been and just how far we’ve come.

Along with a critical essay by Orson Scott Card reassessing science fiction in the twentieth century, Masterpieces includes short fiction by writers who have forged a permanent place for science fiction in the popular culture of today… and tomorrow. It offers a glimpse of the greates works that mixed science with fiction in trying to figure out humanity’s place in the universe. Featuring blod, brave, and breathtaking storeis, this definitive collection will stand the test of time in both this century and those to come.

“Will remind you why you fell in love with science fiction in the first place.”

Buena selección de autores, aunque no soy muy fanático de Gibson.

La verdad es que de Gibson nunca he leído nada, pero ya eres el segundo que no me lo pone muy bien…
