[Includes "A Soaring Pillar of Brightness" by Nancy Fulda]

Colonists take to the stars to discover new planets, new sentient beings, and build new lives for themselves and their families. Some travel years to find their destination, while others travel a year or less. Some discover a planet that just might be paradise, while others find nothing but unwelcoming aliens and terrain. It’s not just a struggle for territory but a struggle for understanding as cultures clash, disasters occur, danger lurks and lives are at risk. Eighteen stories of space colonists by both leading and up and coming science fiction writers of today. Mike Resnick spins a tale of aliens who find Earth future diverse and surprising as they plan an invasion. Grandmaster Robert Silverberg examines what happens when Jews tired of fighting for their homeland start over on a planet then must deal with a dybbuk (spirit) and aliens who wish to convert to Judaism. Autumn Rachel Dryden has colonists threatened by alien animals which burst out of shells on the ground like piranhas ready to feed on flesh. Jason Sanford has Amish colonists on New Amsterdam finding their settlement and way of life threatened by a comet and the English settlers who want to evacuate them. And a new story from Hugo and Nebula-winner Nancy Kress.

In a fictional future, a teenage girl faces a devastating choice: accept a medical procedure that will make her just like everyone else, or take the chance that she will never learn to cope with the condition which cripples her. Unable to speak, at least in ways most people can understand, Hannah struggles with the question of who she is, and who she wishes to become.

Originally published in the March 2011 issue of Asimov’s Science Fiction Magazine, “Movement” was marked Highly Recommended by Locus Reviews, was acclaimed as the “best story I have read so far this year” by Mundane-SF, was nominated for both the Hugo and Nebula Awards, and received the Asimov’s Readers’ Choice Award for 2011. It is quite short, easily readable during a half-hour lunch break, and interweaves Hannah’s heartrending narrative with concepts drawn from neurology, entropy, social evolution and chaos theory.
