An anthology of stories edited by

From the jacket: Terry Carr's award-winning Universe series has long been acclaimed as the finest annual anthology of original fiction in its field. Now that tradition of creative excellence continues with UNIVERSE 17. This latest SF symposium presents six extraordinary works-each published here for the first time-showcasing today's masters of the genre, as well as its rising new stars. Bear witness to James Tiptree, Jr.'s "Second Going," a wry and witty tale that introduces us to a far-off race of aliens which has some surprisingly practical ideas about gods. Travel to another dimension in time in Cherie Wilkerson's "The Man Who Watched the Glaciers Run," where one fellow's "inner clock" ticks to a very different beat . . . about one-seventh the speed of everyone else. And comb through some curious classifieds with Joel Richards in "Mencken Stuff," as a man takes out an ad promising to tell anyone the day he or she will die-a chilling talent if you can do it. These and three other stories by Marta Randall, Ned Huston, and Jack McDevitt create a startling excursion into speculative future worlds you won't want to miss.
