“Let your book start the Time Travel Game”

Season 2: “Let your book start the Time Travel Game”


“Imagine that you have been chosen for a fabulous travel in a space ship following the government’s decision to send a writer to a newly discovered planet. You are permitted to carry only one book of your choice along with your luggage. one important thing is YOU CANNOT RETURN TO EARTH FOR TEN YEARS. Because 1 year in earth is 1 day in the new planet.”


Alephi : Now say which book you may choose to carry with you?

Mike Resnick : I don’t care to go to any other planet until I’ve thoroughly explored Earth. But to answer your question, it would be a thick book, of course, with many stories and points of view rather than just one. I’d take either THE SCIENCE FICTION HALL OF FAME or A DAMON RUNYON OMNIBUS.
