From Library Journal

From a darkly humorous tale of the power of words ("Death and the Librarian") to a never-before-published response to the events of September 11 ("Ilion"), Friesner's 12 stories illustrate the author's acutely sensitive vision of wonder in the everyday world. Often cloaked in humor, these tales always provide keen insights using sf and fantasy as vehicles. Known primarily for his "Star Wars" novels, including Heir to the Empire, Zahn's short stories also deliver strong plots and memorable characters. Beginning with a tale of interstellar war against a hive-mind ("Point Man") and ending with a novella that combines space travel and music in a unique and surprising fashion, Star Song's six pieces illuminate the author's versatility and eclectic tastes. Zebrowski's many novels (e.g., Macrolife) mark him as a visionary as well as a master of hard sf. The ten short stories collected in In the Distance provide a benchmark of his creativity. From tales of the near future ("The Water Sculptor") to those of the far future ("Between the Winds"), the author expands his concept of the human condition to embrace the stars. Part of Five Star's continuing commitment to showcasing the short fiction of the genre's most prominent authors, these three volumes belong in most libraries where short sf is popular.

A sextet of stories, all at least slightly on the light side, from the prolific and popular Zahn. In the story so titled, "The Broccoli Factor" is a breakthrough to fusion power with a difference. "The Play's the Thing" depicts an alien's ambitions to appear on Broadway as a revolutionary force. "Point Man" is about a character always in the wrong place at the wrong time, so that even when he prevents an interstellar war, he gets no credit. "Hitmen--See Murderers" offers the temptation of a telephone directory that predicts crimes. In "The Art of War," alien art appears to be a plot against humanity but is, in fact, a plot for something quite different. Finally, "Star Song" arises from the premise of interstellar travel with the help of space-dwelling aliens, or "flapblacks," with whom humans communicate musically, and it proceeds merrily thereafter. If no single story makes an extraordinary impact, not one is other than intelligent, and together they amount to quite a display of versatility. Roland Green
