Description

About the book (from jacket flap):

Who could be a more knowledgeable or delightful guide for a tour of the solar system than the renowned Isaac Asimov?

Absolutely no one, of course, and for this altogether winning new anthology. Asimov and his colleagues Martin Harry Greenberg and Charles G. Waugh have collected a baker’s dozen of marvelous stories about the sun, comets, asteroid, and all the planets. Here are Arthur C. Clarke’s Saturn Rising, James Blish’s Bridge, Theodore L. Thomas’s The Weather on the Sun, Asimov’s own Waterclap, and much, much more. Each tale is studded with the fine writing and brilliant imagination which make for science fiction at its best.

To complete the volume, Isaac Asimov introduces each section with fascinating information that tells what we know today about the solar system – and what we knew when the stories were written.

All in all, The Science Fictional Solar System is top-notch entertainment for lovers of science and fine fiction.
