Three short novels about space, happiness, and immortality. Science fiction hungers to see the infinite, from the infinitesimally small to the edges of the universe, and from the beginning of things to their final end. In three powerful short novels James Gunn writes of strange dreams and how they end. These stories are the work of a master of science fiction.
"Space Is A Lonely Place" concerns man's long-held dream of travelling to another world. "The Joy Ride" is about ultimate happiness and the nature of reality. And "The Immortal" considers whether man is ready to pay the price of immortality. The three pieces, all of them serious by intention, are told with the verve, excitement, and flashes of humor characteristic of James Gunn's fiction.
All three stories stand alone, but also continue and conclude the dreams begun in Some Dreams are Nightmares.
