In an age of regular journeys into space and the tunnel under the English Channel - when billions of dollars are spent on future communications technology, and a "Star Wars" defence can change world politics - science fiction is more a part of our daily lives than ever before. Greg Bear, the bestselling author of Eon and Moving Mars, has created an anthology of original science fiction which brings the future right to our doorsteps, and shows how strange and marvellous - or eerie and horrifying - our world is now ... and will be, in times to come.
