Product Description: Authors imagine sports in intergalactic, Olympic-like competitions of the future. Eighteen stories, eighteen different sports, many never written about in science fiction before.
The Olympic Games--pushing skills, minds, brains and bodies to their limits in the ultimate competition on Earth. But once mankind has reached the stars, playing sports will travel with us. Yet galactic sports come with new challenges and possibilities. And new dangers.
From downhill figure skating to horse racing with alien life forms; from baseball played with speedboats to basketball on Mars and golf on the Moon; from alien opponents to literally death defying stakes, Galactic Games takes the competition to a whole new level. Includes stories by authors George R.R. Martin, Mercedes Lackey, Larry Correia, Todd McCaffrey, David Farland, and Seanan McGuire, Robert Silverberg, Randall Garrett, Gene Wolfe, Mike Resnick, Jack C. Haldeman, and more.
