I’ve found out that a couple of scientists on the Kepler Spacecraft project have written an anthology of stories called Kepler’s Dozen.
What makes that so awesome, you ask? Simple–they’re stories about REAL exoplanets with environments and technologies that are all completely scientifically accurate (based on what we know now).
This science fiction writer finds this idea fairly kick-ass. I’m going to order the anthology, and you should too.
