This book was published in 1975. This is one of the largest volumes of all-new science fiction ever published. Epoch presents state of the art science fiction in the 1970s. It has become a mature form, retaining the exhilaration, the soaring sense of wonder for which it has been so long admired, and has risen to new heights of drama, of character realization, of stylistic clarity. This book includes a full novel by Jack Vance called The Dog Town Tourist Agency. The short stories in this book are by Larry Niven, Gordon Eklund, Ursula K. Le Guin, R.A. Lafferty, Frederik Pohl, Ward Moore, Clifford D. Simak, Kate Wilhelm, W. Macfarlane, Jack Dann, Joseph Green, Alexi and Cory Panshin, George R. R. Martin, Lou Fisher, Joanna Russ, A.A. Attansia, Michael Bishop, Barry N. Malzberg, Gregory Benford, Harry Harrison, Brian W. Aldiss, Neal Barrett, and Jr. John Shirley.
