From release/information:

Like it's companion volumn Novel Ideas: Fantasy, Novel Ideas: Science Fiction gives us a rare chance to learn about where the ideas for stories and novel come from. Seven science fiction writers give an introduction to their short stories telling where the ideas came from and then you get to read the short story that later became a novel. The contents includes: "Ender's Game" by Orson Scott Card later expanded to the novel Ender's Game; "Fire Watch" by Connie Willis which inspired The Doomsday Book, To Say Nothing of the Dog, and All Clear; "Air Raid" by John Varley later expanded to the novel Millennium; "Lady in the Tower" by Anne McCaffrey later expanded into the novel The Rowan; "The Postman" by David Brin which became the novel The Postman; "Blood Music" by Greg Bear which was later expanded into the novel Blood Music; and "Beggars in Spain" by Nancy Kress expanded into the novel Beggars in Spain."
