A Day in the Life

An anthology of stories edited by

A collection of legendary science fiction classics selected and individually introduced by the winner of fifteen Hugo awards for best editor, Gardner Dozois.

From the introduction:
"They are stories that we intuit as life, that somehow fool us into thinking - while we are reading them - that they are something more than words on paper, that the events in the story are actually occurring in some dimension congruent with our own, viewed through the window of fiction. . .They show us, with conviction, something we would otherwise never know on this earth: what everyday, day-to-day life would be like in a different society, an alien culture, another world."

This outstanding collection full of authentic SF masterpieces includes: "On the Storm Planet," by Cordwainer Smith, "Slow Tuesday Night," by R. A. Lafferty, "This Moment of the Storm," by Roger Zelazny, "Driftglass," by Samuel R. Delany, "Mary," by Damon Knight, "The Haunted Future," by Fritz Leiber, "The Lady Margaret" by Keith Roberts, and "A Happy Day in 2381," by Robert Silverberg.

Science Fiction Hall of Fame Inductee Gardner Dozois is the winner of two Nebula awards for fiction. Dozois was also the long-time editor of Asimov's Science Fiction Magazine, a position for which he won fifteen Hugo awards. He remains editor of the annual Year's Best Science Fiction anthologies.
