Going For Infinity, "...a collection and retrospective of his life's work" (For Love And Glory, jacket).
For Love And Glory, 290 pages of text divided into LIV short chapters:
incorporates in changed form two stories set in a multi-author universe created by Isaac Asimov;
combines recognizable elements and themes from Anderson's Technic Civilization and Harvest of Stars future histories.
Despite these connections and similarities, it is a distinct and independent novel of interstellar civilization and exploration, well illustrated by its cover.
A noticeable difference from the Technic Civilization History is that hyperbeaming, communicating long distance by a hyperspatial equivalent of radio, is possible. For Love And Glory is set not only in a different timeline but also apparently in a much further future. Earth is not the capital of an interstellar empire but a quiet, depopulated planet where people are somehow merging their consciousnesses into a quantum internet.
Human beings live for centuries as they are periodically rejuvenated to a physical age of twenty. It is known that the galactic center is a monstrous black hole. Anderson imagines yet another unlikely astronomical event: a collision between two massive black holes in galactic orbits, with human explorers arriving just in time to observe. I await the outcome.
