About this product
- DescriptionA collection of six critically acclaimed vellas by science fiction Grand Master Robert Silverberg including the Nebula Award winning Sailing to Byzantium and Born with the Dead Robert Silverberg s vellas open the door to new worlds: In Born with the Dead, a woman wills her body to be rekindled after death, allowing her to walk among the living, while her husband is left in the impossible position of accepting her death when he can still see her. In the Nebula Award minated story Homefaring, the time-traveling narrator finds himself trapped in the consciousness of a lobsterlike creature of the far future, leading him to reflect on what it means to be human. And in the collection s Nebula Award winning title story, the Earth of the fiftieth century is a place where time is elusive and fluid, and young citizens live as tourists in ancient cities.Together, the stories in Sailing to Byzantium form an engrossing exploration of the short-vel form by one of science fiction s greatest writers.
