Description

These twelve science-fiction short stories follow twelve individuals in a distant, or maybe not so distant, future. Each character is facing a challenge or choice that will change the course of their life, and might also affect the fate of humanity itself. Inspired by past and present science fiction masters like Ray Bradbury, Ursula K Le Guin, Arthur C. Clarke and Isaac Asimov, these short stories explore the human mind and the human condition in a future where space travel, cloning, genetic manipulation and other technological advancements affect the world and every human being in it. With evocative language, and a sharp focus on human strengths and frailties in the face of change, disaster, love, and loneliness, Odin's Eye explores both outer space, and the inner workings of the human mind.
