“The most important original anthology series in [science fiction].”—The Washington Post Book World
The winner of three consecutive Locus Awards, nominated ten times for Hugo and Nebula Awards, Full Spectrum is the most critically acclaimed original science fiction anthology series published today.

Now Full Spectrum returns its fifth incarnation, with twenty-eight cutting-edge stories that range from Gene Wolfe’s unforgettable tale of snowbound cabin where a man receives a terrifying and wondrous visitation, to Michael Bishop’s furiously funny fable of a Supreme Being named Joe who barges onto a cable talk show to relinquish his job to humanity, to Jean-Claude Dunyach’s shattered landscape fit only for macabre performance artists and the roving camera-eyes that broadcast their art and their deaths.

Diverse, original, and provocative, here is a full spectrum of short science fiction as practiced by today’s best writers.
