One million years from now. It’s a span of time so huge that it’s hard for the mind to grasp. Even within science fiction, to conjure up a convincing portrait of what humanity might be like in such a remote future calls for writers with rare breadth of vision. Fortunately, Dozois and Dann have found them.
The book includes 6 novellas, all commissioned for this book and published here for the first time. The stories all take place in the year One Million A.D. The book also begins with a three-page introduction by Dozois entitled “Exploring the Far Future”.
The setting of Alastair Reynolds story was later used as the setting for the novel House of Suns.
