Anywhere, Anywhen

Stories of Tomorrow
An anthology of stories edited by

The Kindle edition of this book, unlike the hardcover edition, contains all of Sylvia Engdahl's short fiction, including "Timescape" (coathored with Mildred Butler) from the hardcover edition, "The Beckoning Trail" (coauthored with Rick Roberson) from Universe Ahead, and "Tranquility," a previously-unpublished story written in 1957. These stories are directed to somewhat older teens than most of the other stories in this expanded edition. "The Beckoning Trail" in particular will be of interest to readers of her novels.

An anthology of stories about the future edited by Sylvia Engdahl, it is intended for teens who don't ordinarily read science fiction rather than for SF fans, and is not meant to be an introduction to that genre. It focuses on the timeless aspects of being human, and aims to suggest ideas about the future in a way that those who prefer real-life settings to strange, "far-out" ones will enjoy. Contributors in addition to Engdahl include Shirley Rousseau Murphy, Carol Farley, Rick Roberson, Robert Pierik, and Mildred Butler, all of whom are established authors of children's or Young Adult fiction. The two original stories from Engdahl and Roberson's previous anthology Universe Ahead, which consisted mainly of reprinted stories, are included.
