    Chronicling the events and key ideas from the second half of the 20th century in both the world of science fiction and the world at large, this collection of insights and musings from a Grand Master of the genre offers a unique perspective with the edge of honed artist. Robert Silverberg offers up essays on unique scientific ideas as well as on real characters and society that contemplates the end-of-world empires, resonating with contemporary news and headlines but also taking into account the role of the writer who seeks inspiration in true events. The author also takes stock of his contemporaries, providing an inside look at the lives of other greats such as Isaac Asimov, Robert Heinlein, Phillip K. Dick, Harlan Ellison, James Tiptree Jr., and Jack Vance. This edition includes an expanded section on writing science fiction, creating an invaluable resource for new writers venturing into the field on whom Silverberg has made a significant impact.

    Far Horizons
    All New Tales From The Greatest Worlds O
    The universe of the mind is a limitless expanse of wonders, filled with worlds and secrets that cannot be fully explored within the pages of a single novel.

    A Time of Changes

    A Time of Changes
    In the far future, Earth is a worn-out backwater and humanity is spread across the galaxy on worlds that began as colonies, but now feel like home, each with its own long history of a thousand years or more, and each with its own unique culture. One of the strangest is on Borthan, where the founding settlers established the Covenant, which teaches that the self is to be despised, and forbids anyone to reveal his innermost thoughts or feelings to another. On Borthan, the filthiest obscenities imaginable are the words “I” and “me.” For the heinous crime of “self-baring,” apostates have always paid with exile or death, but after his eyes are opened by a visitor from Earth, Kinnall Darival, prince of Salla, risks everything to teach his people the real meaning of being human. With a new introduction by the author, and the first-ever map of Borthan, this classic, out of print since 1992, is a fantastic new addition to the Orb imprint.
