Imagine a world where interplanetary travel isn't just possible – it's commonplace. Human beings have terraformed Mars. You can reach into another dimension through a wormhole. The virtual world can be the only place where you exist, because you don't have a body. The possibilities are endless. Escape from Earth, inspired by Robert Heinlein's "juveniles," featuring stories by Orson Scott Card (Ender's Game), Elizabeth Moon (the Vatta books), and Joe Haldeman (The Forever War), among others, will take you places beyond your imagination.
