Old Venus free pdf Sixteen all-new stories by science fiction s top talents, collected by bestselling author George R. R. Martin and multiple-award-winning editor Gardner Dozois From pulp adventures such as Edgar Rice Burroughs s "Carson of Venus "to classic short stories such as Ray" "Bradbury s The Long Rain to visionary novels such as C. S. Lewis s "Perelandra, " the planet Venus has loomed almost as large in the imaginations of science fiction writers as Earth s next-nearest neighbor, Mars. But while the Red Planet conjured up in Golden Age science fiction stories was a place of vast deserts and ruined cities, bright blue Venus was its polar opposite: a steamy, swampy jungle world with strange creatures lurking amidst the dripping vegetation. Alas, just as the last century s space probes exploded our dreams of Mars, so, too, did they shatter our romantic visions of Venus, revealing, instead of a lush paradise, a hellish world inimical to all life. But don t despair! This new anthology of sixteen original stories by some of science fiction s best writers edited by #1 "New York Times "bestselling author George R. R. Martin and award-winning editor Gardner Dozois turns back the clock to that more innocent time, before the hard-won knowledge of science vanquished the infinite possibilities of the imagination. Join our cast of award-winning contributors including Elizabeth Bear, David Brin, Joe Haldeman, Gwyneth Jones, Mike Resnick, Eleanor Arnason, Allen M. Steele, and more as we travel back in time to a planet that never was but should have been: a young, rain-drenched world of fabulous monsters and seductive mysteries.

Lansdale Stephen Leigh Paul McAuley Ian McDonald Garth Nix Mike Resnick Allen M. Steele Lavie Tidhar And an Introduction by Gardner Dozois"
