The seductive thrill of uncharted worlds, of distant galaxies... and the unknown threats that lurk in the vastness of the cosmos. From Foundation to Lensman, Star Wars to Guardians of the Galaxy, space opera continues to exert its magnetic pull on us all.

This is the definitive collection of original short stories by many of today's finest authors, writing brand new adventures set in their most famous series. Here in lie canonical tales of the Honorverse, the Lost Fleet, Dune, Vatta's War, Ender Wiggin, the Legion of the Damned, the Imperium, and more.

Also included are past masterpieces by authors whose works defined the genre, including a Miles Vorkosigan adventure, a story from the author of the Dragonriders of Pern, and a rare tale coauthored by the screenwriter for The Empire Strikes Back. 

Nebula and Hugo Award winners, New York Times bestsellers, and Science Fiction Grand Masters-these authors take us to the farthest regions of space.

"Space opera is celebrated in this capacious anthology with stories from a stellar lineup of its best contemporary practitioners....irresistible to space opera enthusiasts."
-Publishers Weekly Starred Review

"While the broad sampling means readers may not enjoy every tale, the wide variety on offer makes this volume worth a look for any sf reader, regardless of their particular genre tastes."
-Booklist Review

"Infinite Stars is a strong celebration of the variety and power of the space opera subgenre, both in its history and its ongoing vitality" - Locus magazine

"celebrates the breadth and scope--and storytelling power--of space opera" - Barnes & Noble SFF blog

"a once-in-a-lifetime collection" Unbound Worlds

"great sci-fi done right, an appetizer whetting the appetite for much larger entrees to follow." -- Seattle Book Review

"After reading this volume, even the most grounded reader will be able to see that space opera has blasted off from its formulaic and predictable pulpy roots to explore galaxies of carefully crafted prose, thematic depth, and character complexity. These stories beg the reader to question the very nature of reality and gaze in wonder at the universe, pondering the struggles and joys of humans who seek to find their place in it" -- Tethered by Letters

"A great anthology with a bit of something for everyone and some top notch writers to boot." - Portland Book Review

About the Author


Kevin J. Anderson is the author of nearly 100 novels, 48 of which have appeared on national or international bestseller lists; he has over 20 million books in print in thirty languages. He has won or been nominated for the Nebula Award, Bram Stoker Award, the SFX Reader's Choice Award, and New York Times Notable Book. By any measure, he is one of the most popular writers currently working in the genre.

Anderson has coauthored eleven books in the Dune saga with Brian Herbert, including the most recent, The Winds of Dune. Herbert and Anderson are co-producers on a major new film of Dune from Paramount. Anderson's popular epic SF series, The Saga of Seven Suns, is his most ambitious work; all seven volumes were just released in paperback and topped international bestseller lists. He is currently at work on a sweeping fantasy trilogy, Terra Incognita, about sailing ships, sea monsters, and the crusades. The first novel, The Edge of the World, was released in June 2009.

As an innovative companion project to Terra Incognita, Anderson cowrote (with wife Rebecca Moesta) the lyrics for an ambitious rock CD based on The Edge of the World. Performed by the new supergroup Roswell Six for ProgRock Records, the CD is a groundbreaking project featuring performances by rock legends from Dream Theater, Asia, Saga, Kansas, Rocket Scientists, Shadow Gallery, and others.

His novel Enemies & Allies chronicles the first meeting of Batman and Superman in the 1950s during the Cold War; also for HarperCollins/DC, Anderson wrote The Last Days of Krypton, chronicling the end of Superman's planet.

He has written numerous Star Wars projects, including the Jedi Academy trilogy, Darksaber, the Young Jedi Knights series (with Moesta), and Tales of the Jedi comics from Dark Horse. Fans might also know him from his X-Files novels or Dean Koontz's Frankenstein: Prodigal Son. He has published comics with DC, Marvel, IDW, Wildstorm, Topps, and Dark Horse.
