Here are the gems! The gateway to the many worlds of Edward M. Lerner!
While you probably know Ed from his SF novels, including the InterstellarNet series and the epic Fleet of Worlds series with Larry Niven—Ed is also a prolific author of acclaimed short fiction. This collection showcases his finest and favorite shorter works.
Faced with the common question of which of his books should someone read first, he has carefully selected these stories to cover his wide range. Now he can answer, "This one!"
Alternate history. Parallel worlds. Future crime. Alien invasion. Alien castaways. Time travel. Quantum intelligence (just don't call him artificial). A (sort of) haunted robot. Deco punk. In this book, you'll find these—and more—together with Ed's reminiscences about each selection and its relationship to other stories, novels, and even series that span his writing career.
These are the best, as determined by awards, award nominations, and the selective tastes of eight top editors and choosy Analog readers. Each excellent story stands alone—you won't need to have read anything prior—but you'll surely want to read more of Ed's books afterwards.
"Lerner's world-building and extrapolating are top notch."
"This collection demonstrates the author's wide range within the field of science fiction. Fans of the genre are sure to find something to fit their tastes."
—Tangent Online "Lerner is one of the wittiest and most thoughtful of recent Analog regulars, and this collection provides a fine overview of his output. My one added observation is that the title is somewhat premature. "Best of" collections are supposed to be a sort of authoritative summary of authors who are wrapping up, unofficially, their authorial careers <81><81><81> Not only do I think Lerner has a few more good novellas in him, this volume also misses a couple that to my mind should rate inclusion. For the time being, though, this will do nicely." —Galaxy's Edge Magazine
