These 12 stories are collected around the broad theme of travel. They were gleaned from 60 years of work by science fiction master Robert Silverberg. Each includes a brief intro by the author. Here are some quick summaries:
1) In Another Country: This novella of time-travel was written as a companion piece to the great story 'Vintage Season' by the writer C.L. Moore.
2) Travelers: A short story about a quartet of space travelers who can skip around the universe at will. Most worlds they visit are unique and perfectly beautiful. Re-birth technology allows for very long lives of leisure and adventure. But is life worth anything without struggle? Eventually, one of their party chooses a hideous world called Sidri Akrak for their next destination. An imaginative rumination on mortality.
3) Chip Runner: In this story, a 15-year-old becomes anorexic in his quest to escape his corporal body and mentally 'fall into' and explore inside microchips, the atomic and sub-atomic universe, and even the nature of reality itself.
4) Looking for the Fountain: This is a tale about Don Juan Ponce de Leon and the quest for a miraculous fountain that bestows manly strength.
5) Ship-Sister, Star-Sister: A cool story that Silverberg later developed into a novel. A spaceship with a small crew is 16 million light years from earth, traveling through 'nospace' on their mission of exploration. Their only communication with earth is through a young, blind crewmember who is telepathically linked with her identical twin on earth. Metaphysical ideas related to universal consciousness.
6) The Changeling: Silverberg dedicated this strange story to Philip K. Dick. When a man on a Mexican trip visits the Temple of Quetzalcoatl, he suddenly becomes another person with a different life and a wife he doesn't know. (Queue some 'twilight zone' music.)
7) We Are For the Dark: This is a well-written philosophical novella about a religious order undergoing a crisis. A Lord Magistrate is in charge of choosing who leaves Earth to follow and spread what they call Darklaw out to the heavens. This story explores interesting concepts concerning matter and antimatter and symmetry along with the religious themes.
8) The Trouble With Sempoanga: A very short story about a beautiful tourist planet where the native population harbors a dismal 'zanjak' parasite. If you catch it (via sex), you are quarantined and can never leave.
9) The Sixth Palace: This is an SF spin on the fable of a vast, fabulous treasure trove guarded by a large sentinel (a robot in this tale). Is anyone successful in answering a series of questions so they can pass and collect (steal) the intriguing, well-described treasures? Riddle me this.
10) Why?: Two men in an Exploratory Corps having been seeking new worlds for years when one asks the old existential question of 'why are we doing this'.
11) The Pleasure of Their Company: Imagine you are a president escaping a violent military coup by taking off in an spaceship and leaving family and friends behind. It's too dangerous to contact home. You only have AI-type electronic 'cubes' programmed to simulate individual personalities for conversation. What cubes do you take along (while you're saving your own skin)? Perhaps Ovid, Plato, Alexander the Great, Shakespeare, Hemingway, Attila the Hun, your wife, your child, your best friend?
12) Thebes of the Hundred Gates: This novella was inspired by a fantastic Egyptian trip that Silverberg took in 1990. ( )
