Overview
Explosive and provocative battles fought across the boundaries of time and space—and on the frontiers of the human mind.

Science fiction’s finest have yielded this definitive collection featuring stories of warfare, victory, conquest, heroism, and overwhelming odds. These are scenarios few have ever dared to contemplate, and they include:

“Superiority”: Arthur C. Clarke presents an intergalactic war in which one side’s own advanced weaponry may actually lead to its ultimate defeat.

“Dragonrider”: A tale of Anne McCaffrey’s Dragonriders of Pern, in which magic tips the scales of survival.

“Second Variety”: Philip K. Dick, author of the short story that became the movie Blade Runner, reaches new heights of terror with his post-apocalyptic vision of the future.

“The Night of the Vampyres”: A chilling ultimatum of atomic proportions begins a countdown to disaster in George R. R. Martin’s gripping drama.

“Hero”: Joe Haldeman’s short story that led to his classic of interstellar combat, The Forever War.

“Ender’s Game”: The short story that gave birth to Orson Scott Card’s masterpiece of military science fiction.
