The Saturn Above It gathers together twenty-one short stories about space: a diverse collection of authoritative literary voices on encounters with our universe. This anthology offers a glimpse into our attempts to understand space and our place in it through the varied styles and perspectives of literary visionaries including Don DeLillo, Primo Levi, Steven Millhauser, Kurt Vonnegut, Virginia Woolf, J.G. Ballard, and Ray Bradbury. These stories explore the uniquely human ways we react to the strangeness and enormity of the universe. Together, they offer a portrait of the human psyche and who we are - or could be - when we contemplate all that lies beyond Earth's atmosphere. Edited by Karen Stevens.
