Far Frontiers


Frontiers. There’s something magical about that word. Something stirring in its echoes. Something that calls to us, that sets our blood singing, our pulse pounding, and our souls soaring. Frontiers are more than just that, however, more than just stirring action, compelling char¬acters, and lives lived on the edge.

I’ve long believed that what our modem society needs most is a new frontier—something that would re¬ignite a sense of patriotism and community, something that would help to channel our aggressions, something that would give us, as a nation and as a world, a sense of pride, a sense of productivity, a sense of progress.

That’s why I’ve been such a fan of the space program. It’s also why, for the past twenty years or so, I’ve been so disap¬pointed in our space program.

But space isn’t the only frontier left open to us. It may not even truly be the final frontier. Some of my favorites include cities on the ocean floor, virtual reality, and per¬haps the greatest frontier of all: death itself.
Come with us now as we invite some of today’s top writers to take us on a personal tour of their own favorite frontiers.
