Summary
Two classic novels and a short story collection from the legendary Hugo and Nebula Award–winning author in one volume. This volume from an icon of the Golden Age of science fiction includes: City : In this International Fantasy Award–winning novel, millennia have passed since humankind abandoned Earth, leaving their most loyal animal companions alone. Granted the power of speech centuries earlier, the intelligent, pacifist dogs are the last keepers of human history. With the aid of Jenkins, an ageless service robot, the dogs live in harmony and peace. But now they're threatened by the reawakened remnants of a warlike race called "Man." A Heritage of Stars : More than a thousand years have passed since humankind intentionally destroyed its treacherous technology. The scant knowledge that has survived is kept in monastery-like "universities" where Tom Cushing learns of the legendary "Place of Going to the Stars." On an amazing trek across what was once America, Tom and a band of misfits seek the source of the myth, only to discover an astonishing revelation at the end of their journey. Grotto of the Dancing Deer : Ten tales of wonder, danger, and the future, including the Hugo and Nebula Award–winning "Grotto of the Dancing Deer," in which a man carrying an ancient secret finally speaks up, unable to bear any longer the loneliness he has experienced for millennia; "Over the River," where children from an embattled future are sent back for safekeeping to their ancestors in the peaceful past; "Day of Truce," about the inhabitants of a suburban subdivision who must barricade themselves against bands of roving attackers who invade when the gates open wide one day every year; and seven more stories from a master of speculative fiction
