Going for Infinity - Poul Anderson

More than just a collection of some of Poul Anderson's most acclaimed works, Going for Infinity is both a celebration and a memoir of Anderson's distinguished sixty-year career in science fiction and fantasy.

Alongside several Hugo and Nebula Award-winning stories, Anderson also shares autobiographical musings and fond memories as he looks back at a lifetime spent crafting many of science fiction's most memorable adventures

From the moons of Saturn to the shores of an enchanted isle, the astounding breadth of Poul Anderson's imagination is on ample display throughout this once-in-a-lifetime collection, along with a personal glimpse into the man himself.
