Type: ANTHOLOGY
Language: English
Synopsis: From the Back Cover of the DAW First Edition: Nuke time - We are a people grown up in the presence of an ultimate weapon, the nuclear bomb. This creation of 20th Century science has become the obsessive problem behind all social thinking. Yet all projections of this problem are by definition science fiction. Nuclear war has not happened, yet some startling books and films, future fiction by necessity, have riveted the world's attention. H. Bruce Franklin has gathered together twelve of the finest science fiction stories about the nuke problem. As he writes in his introduction: "Science fiction does give us some unique insights into the sources, dangers and dimensions of the nuclear menace... But since science fiction helped us get into this mess, perhaps it is not asking too much of it to help us find our way out." In this book are presented some solutions, some projections, and more than a little hope.
