This has many of the touches of the sci fi books I read as a child - full of science and wonder, stretching the boundaries of the known, mixed with some all-too-human viewpoints. Some masterful tales herein. And some totally amazing graphics for each story - high quality eye candy indeed. Very well done. Berry

The variation in stories and ideas of the future us evidence of the technology potential we have at this time. A selection sure to have at least one story that interests the science fiction, or technical reader. While these stories were the result of current technology, they may well open the thoughts of others to invent new technology.
