Landscapesby Kevin J. Anderson
Bestselling author Kevin J. Anderson is best known for his epic science fiction novels such as Hidden Empire, Dune: House Atreides (with Brian Herbert), and Star Wars: Jedi Search.
This collection of twenty-two tales and two essays displays the range of his imagination, from science fiction to fantasy to horror; from alien landscapes in the far future to cutting-edge technological developments that could happen tomorrow.
The first five stories take readers to parallel universes next door, on expeditions for Alternitech. Other tales put a humorous twist on classic fantasy scenarios of kissing frogs and slaying dragons. Readers will see cloned mammoths, the dark side of early Hollywood, attorneys wrestling with the legalities of time paradoxes, and backpackers on an alien planet.
