TOC: ‘Edge of Infinity’ Edited by Jonathan Strahan

Jonathan Strahan has posted the table of contents for his upcoming anthology Edge of Infinity, a direct follow on from last year’s Engineering Infinity, but this time is focused on “hard SF/adventure set in an industrialised, settled pre-starflight solar system”:

Here’s the book description:

“One small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind”. Those were Neil Armstrong’s immortal words when he became the first human being to step onto another world. Edge of Infinity is an exhilarating new hard SF anthology that looks at the next giant leap for humankind: the leap from our home world out into the Solar System. From the slow turning, eccentric inferno of Mercury to the farthest chunks of ice and rock skimming our heliosphere, every inch of our Solar System is the stage for the greatest adventure in humanity’s history. Set to feature stories by Stephen Baxter, Elizabeth Bear, Pat Cadigan, Gwyneth Jones, Paul McAuley, An Owomoyela, Hannu Rajaniemi, Alastair Reynolds, Bruce Sterling, Peter Watts, John Barnes, and James S.A. Corey, Edge of Infinity is hard SF adventure at its best and most exhilarating.
