This impressive anthology features twenty writers, most with national reputations and all with ties to the Intermountain West, who tell believable, near-future stories reflecting the region's peculiar subtleties. Their common setting is what is known as The Corridor: the stretch of irrigable land between the Rocky Mountains and the Nevada-Utah desert, stretching from northern Idaho to mid-Arizona.In these haunting stories religious technocrats invade dreams, women mysteriously disappear, Anasazi ruins become latter-day refuges, earthquake predictions spoil an end-of-the-century party, and a fossilized dinosaur wreaks posthumous havoc. Each story carries the depth of authenticity and the power of a twenty-first-century construct. These sophisticated, subversive, and prophetic tales represent contemporary science fiction at its best.Among the contributors are Glenn L. Anderson, Virginia Ellen Baker, Elizabeth H. Boyer, Orson Scott Card, D. William Shunn, Diann Thornley, and Dave Wolverton. In addition to the editor's introduction, a prologue by Barbara Hume sets the stage with Strange Bedfellows -- A History of Science Fiction in the Corridor.
