The second edition of “1/10th the Speed of Light” is a collection of more traditional science fiction stories. No magic, wizards, vampires or beings with powers that violate the laws of physics. The main story concerns a civilization that has achieved interstellar travel between closely spaced stars in a cluster. Other stories concern future technology and environmental regulation.
Where are the Flying Cars? is not really about flying cars. It's a brief discussion of science, technology and public policy, and the need to confront the reality that not all new and proposed technologies will ultimately prove to be both successful and (hopefully) environmentally benign. Included is a suggested energy policy for America with some of the rationales behind the recommended actions.
