Norton Book of Science Fiction
In the tradition of other groundbreaking Norton anthologies, Ursula K. Le Guin and Brian Atteberry's Norton Book of Science Fiction provided the first truly comphrehensive and cohereent look at the best of contemporary science fiction. Its 67 stories, all published since 1960, offer compelling evidence that science fiction is the source of the most thoughtful, imaginative - indeed literary - fiction being written today.
Aficionados will find rarely anthologized gems by their favorite authors - Poul Anderson, Margaret Atwood, Octavia Butler, Samuel R. Delany, Philip K. Dick, William Gibson, Joanna Russ, Theodore Sturgeon, James Tiptree, Jr., Gene Wolf, Roger Zelazny - as well as startling work by today's rising stars. Newcomers will delight in the sophisticated range of voices probing the nature of reality and the condition of the human spirit. And readers of all stripes will enjoy Ms. Le Guins robust and insightful indroduction.

Ray Bradbury's "The Martian Chronicles", Andre Norton's "The Stars are Ours" and "Star Born", or any book written by A.E. Van Vogt, science fiction's most prolific writer who wrote more than 35 novels. (that's 35 movies, Follywood)

Two months ago, Ian Thomas was an anonymous government cartographer, posting wildlife maps on the U.S. Geological Survey's Web site. Today, he is a martyr of the environmental movement, celebrated as a victim of the Bush administration's supposed hostility to nature.
Thomas was fired March 12 for posting a map of caribou migrations in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, the pristine swath of tundra where the new administration hopes to promote oil exploration. Within days, green groups were trashing Interior Secretary Gale A. Norton for playing politics, and Thomas's tale of suppressed science was making international news
