“The most important original anthology series in [science fiction].”—The Washington Post Book World
With ten Hugo and Nebula award nominations and three consecutive Locus Awards for best original anthology, Full Spectrum is the most critically acclaimed original science fiction anthology series of its time. Now Full Spectrum returns with its fourth and most provocative installment to date, featuring the best speculative fiction being written today.
From David Brin’s tale of scientific obsession and consuming loneliness on a space station in the farthest reaches of space to Ursula K. Le Guin’s rich and mysterious evocation of the secret language of oppressed women to Ray Aldridge’s haunting tale of a planet where love can be deadly, these twenty fables of the future truly represent the full spectrum of the imagination from the known to the unknown—and everything in between.
Brilliant, disturbing, visionary, and startlingly original, Full Spectrum 4 is quite simply the state of the art of science and speculative fiction.
