Detailed view for the Book: Mammoth Book of Extreme Science Fiction, The (Anthology)


Extreme science fiction means what it says. SF is at its best when it's pushing the boundaries, beyond what we would normally think or even dream, and taking us into worlds we might never imagine.

Here twenty of today's greatest science Fiction creators take us on journeys of vast imaginings, from the simplest of beginnings to the most complex of finalities.

What happens

when inanimate objects are given the gift of life
when there's an error in the universe and it tries to correct itself
when we break out of the universe and discover the creator
when a machine creates a choice of alternate Christs
when a murder is committed in virtual reality
when an immortal ventures to the end of time
