William Gibson. Charles de Lint. Spider Robinson. From the earliest days of modern science fiction, Canada has given readers some of the most important authors in the field - and many of the finest stories. Now David G. Hartwell, World Fantasy Award-winning editor of The Dark Descent and The Ascent of Wonder, and Canadian author Glenn Grant join forces to offer a rich selection of contemporary fiction and essays by Gibson, de Lint, Robinson, and numerous other writers, including Robert J Sawyer, Phyllis Gotlieb, Donald M Kingsbury, Judith Merril, Dave Duncan, Robert Charles Wilson, and acclaimed Quebecois authors Élisabeth Vonarburg and Yves Meynard. These and other talented writers fill Northern Stars with startling visions of today and tomorrow:. A future civilization where reading has become a lost art. Aliens who hijack human bodies at will. Spacefaring leviathans who swim between the stars, and an enigmatic rock star who seeks transcendence in cyberspace. From British Columbia to asteroid moons, from Montreal to machine sex, here are over two dozen unforgettable stories sure to arouse imaginations north and south of the border. Complete with introductory notes and a comprehensive listing of Canadian science fiction award winners, Northern Stars is the definitive overview of science fiction's northern frontier and a valuable addition to any fan's library.
