More by James Gunn
As the AI-in-a-box of Harry's dead wife, Lisa, says, "Luck is only what we call a turn of events for which we haven't discovered an explanation"—propelling Harry and Lisa on a quest through the late 21st Century to figure out just why there are soooooo many strange coincidences happening in the world...
This novel is the last book that Jim Gunn wrote. He had finished it and split it into pieces for publication in Asimov's Science Fiction Magazine. He intended that it be published as one novel under the title Against the Stars after it had appeared in Asimov's, along with the essay included here. Unfortunately Jim passed away before it had finished running there. Because Jim was not available to write an introduction or help guide how it would all appear in book form (beyond the original draft he sent us), we have chosen to keep the divisions into separate stories intact, with Jim's introductions from Asimov's included to explain his thought process. Jim was looking forward to this book, and hopefully we have done it the way that would have made him proud. We hope you enjoy it!
