The New Hugo Winners-Volume IV


THE WINNERS OF SCIENCE FICTION'S MOST COVETED HONOR

* Isaac Asimov, SF legend, contributes one of his last, and best stories in "Gold..."

* Charles Sheffield tells of a computer expert who suddenly discovered evidence that someone had built a working digital computer in 1855, investigated, and discovered something even more amazing....

* Connie Willis, already a multiple Hugo and Nebula award winner, offers two unique stories: In "Even the Queen," the Women's Revolution revolves into a new cycle. And in "Death on the Nile," Agatha Christie meets the Twilight Zone for a tourist in Egypt.

Hugo-winning stories by Harry Turtledove, Nancy Kress, Lucius Shepherd, Janet Kagan, and Geoffrey A. Landis.

Praise for The New Hugo Winners:

"If you want proof that SF is a vibrant, evolving genre, look no further than this collection of Hugo Award-winning stories... this book is one excellent, imaginative story after another.... This is one of the best collections of contemporary SF you're likely to find anywhere." —Kliatt

"It is easy to see why these stories are award-winners..... They are all engrossing... the best current writers in the field." —VOYA
