The Best of Kim Stanley Robinson: Final Cover Revealed!

Coming this August, The New York Times best-selling and Hugo and Nebula award-winning author Kim Stanley Robinson delivers a stunning collection of his best short fiction, including the new, never-before-published story, “The Timpanist of the Berlin Philharmonic, 1942.” Here’s a sneak peek at the cover:

Adventurers, scientists, artists, workers, and visionaries–these are the men and women you will encounter in the short fiction of Kim Stanley Robinson. In settings ranging from the sunken ruins of Venice to the upper reaches of the Himalayas to the terraformed surface of Mars itself, and through themes of environmental sustainability, social justice, personal responsibility, sports, adventure and fun, Robinson’s protagonists explore a world which stands in sharp contrast to many of the traditional locales and mores of science fiction, presenting instead a world in which Utopia rests within our grasp.

From Kim Stanley Robinson, award-winning author of the Mars Trilogy (Red Mars, Green Mars, Blue Mars), the Three Californias Trilogy (The Wild Shore, The Gold Coast, Pacific Edge), the Science in the Capital series (Forty Signs of Rain, Fifty Degrees Below, Sixty Days and Counting), The Martians, and The Years of Rice and Salt, comes The Best of Kim Stanley Robinson. These twenty-two stories, including the Nebula Award-winning “The Blind Geometer,” and World Fantasy Award winner “Black Air” represent The Best of Kim Stanley Robinson.
