Robinson, Kim (editor) / Canavan, Gerry (editor)

Includes an extended interview with Kim Stanley Robinson and an annotated list for further exploration of ecological sf and related works of fiction, nonfiction, films, television, comics,animation, video games, music, and more.

Now the CU's secrets are known to all. Other alien races have come on the scene and formed a new alliance - against the CU. And they've invited Earth to join. For a shaken and betrayed Earth, the choice isn't obvious or easy. Against such possibilities, managing the survival of the CU won't be easy either.

Sladek, John  
The Reproductive System (alternate title: Mechasm) / The Muller-Fokker Effect / Tik-Tok
The Reproductive System: Wompler's Walking Babies aren't selling like they used to, so the company begins producing self-replicating mechanisms designed to repair intercellular breakdowns. But then the metal boxes begin crawling about the laboratory, feeding voraciously on metal and multiplying.

The Muller-Fokker Effect: Bob Shairp - a writer and dreamer - has agreed to be a guinea pig in a military experiment to find out if his personality can be turned into data and stored on a computer. But a computing error destroys Shairp's physical body, leaving his mind stranded in an encoded world. Can the process be reversed?

Tik-Tok: Something has gone wrong with the circuits that should keep Tik-Tok following Asimov's First Law of Robotics: 'A robot shall not injure a human being, or through inaction allow a human being to come to harm.' While maintaining the appearance of a mild-mannered robot, albeit one with artistic tendencies and sympathy for the robot rights movement, Tik-Tok's real agenda is murderously different.
