      What if we were modified neurologically so we could only tell the truth? What if aliens beamed us proof that God didn't exist? What if a teleportation accident created a duplicate you? What if the sideshow freak you're seeing is really a visiting alien?

    Meet the Savage Humanists: the hottest science-fiction writers working today. They use SF's unique powers to comment on the human condition in mordantly funny, satiric stories, each accompanied by extensive commentary by renowned SF scholar Fiona Kelleghan.



    Every author in this anthology has been nominated for the Hugo or Nebula Awards - or both! - and many have won. The Savage Humanists features stories by the top-selling names in the SF field, including Kim Stanley Robinson (author of the novel Red Mars), Connie Willis (The Doomsday Book), James Morrow (The Philosopher's Apprentice), Jonathan Lethem (Gun with Occasional Music), and Robert J. Sawyer (Rollback). A treat for SF readers, and a perfect choice as a teaching text for university science-fiction courses.
