Today Is The Birthday Of The World from the Author: Linda Heller. Today is a special day: the birthday of the world, when God and all God’s creatures celebrate the beauty of life. As God asks each dear creature in turn whether it has been the best that it can be, this simple affirmation of life and goodness applauds the contribution that each and every one of us— from the mightiest elephant to the smallest child— can make. The whimsical animals in Alison Jay’s perfectly composed crackled paintings will make this a favorite book on the family shelf.

For more than twenty years The Year's Best Science Fiction has been recognized as the best collection of short science fiction writing in the universe and an essential resource for every science fiction fan. In 2005 the original Best of the Best collected the finest short stories from that series and became a benchmark in the SF field. Now, for the first time ever, Hugo Award-winning editor Gardner Dozios sifts through hundreds of stories and dozens of authors who have gone on to become some of the most esteemed practitioners of the form, to bring readers the ultimate anthology of short science fiction novels from his legendary series. Included are such notable short novels as: Sailing to Byzantium by Robert Silverberg In the fiftieth century, people of Earth are able to create entire cities on a whim, including those of mythology and legend. When twentieth-century traveler Charles Philip accidentally lands in this aberrant time period, he is simultaneously obsessed with discovering more about this alluring world and getting back home. But in a world made entirely of man's creation, things are not always as they seem on the surface. Forgiveness Day by Ursula K. Le Guin Le Guin returns to her Hainish-settled interstellar community, the Edumen, to tell the tale of two star-crossed lovers who are literally worlds apart in this story of politics, violence, religion, and cultural disparity.

Beneath the placid water lurks an ominous force that has the potential to destroy all tranquility. Contributors include: Greg Egan; Joe Haldeman; James Patrick Kelly; Nancy Kress; Ursula K. Le Guin; Ian R. MacLeod; Ian McDonald; Maureen F. McHugh; Frederick Pohl; Alastair Reynolds; Robert Silverberg; Michael Swanwick; Walter Jon Williams With work spanning two decades, The Best of the Best, Volume 2 stands as the ultimate anthology of short science fiction novels ever published in the world.

Fashoda Alternate History Tales from the Author: BRUNO FONSECA. Is our reality the only one? Our History the only that is real? What if there were parallel dimensions/universes to our own where History has taken different paths? This book is about that possibility. To imagine ?what might have been? is a new (when compared to other science fiction older themes) and fascinating subgenre of Science Fiction called ?Alternate History?. So ?alternate history? is what this book is all about mainly about what if the Fashoda Incident had led to war- Britain and France have always been allies during all the twentieth century. Both nations have fought and won the two World Wars. They have been together (with little disagreement at least) on the same side of Cold War and finally together in the European Union. Therefore, it is difficult to imagine and understandable that so few people today know that in the late nineteenth century, 1898 to be precise, both those ?great allies? were brought to the verge of war! It was the Fashoda Incident. However in our reality the French backed away allowing the British all territorial claims to Fashoda and in exchange France received rights over Morocco. This was the last crisis between the UK and France and from that moment on the ?Entente Cordiale? that allied both countries was born and is still alive today. Nevertheless, that particular crisis might have gone out of control, France might not have yielded its interests to the British what would cause grave consequences. The worst one is that a war might have been fought between the French and British that might have changed all the next century (the twentieth century). Even today's world might be a very different place... However the thematic of a different (and worst) Fashoda incident although the central one it is not the only one in this book, I also imagine others- what if Portugal has never existed? What if the communists (and not the Nazis) have took over Germany in the 1930`s? What if Rasputin has survived and latter turned into a dictator of a Dark Magic regime in Russia? And these are only some examples. Have fun!
