If you like to do your reading on screens rather than paper, or if you can't wait for the hard copy to be published, the book was recently made available on Amazon Kindle, via Connected Editions:
For those of you willing to wait for it, or who prefer to read ink on paper, paperback and hardcover editions of the book will be published in March, and are available for pre-order:
Some of the other contributors include the Director of the Vatican Observatory Guy Consolmagno, the science fiction author and public intellectual David Brin, science fiction author Gregory Benford, and several former NASA officials, not to mention an interview with John Glenn, the first American astronaut to orbit the planet. If you want to see the full table of contents, click on the link for the Kindle edition above, then on the "Look Inside" option by clicking on the cover.
And as you can see from this cover image, the collection is co-edited by Paul Levinson and Michael Waltemathe. Some of you may recall that back on May 5th, 2007, we had a Havadallah Talk adult education session entitled "A Talmudic Look at Ancient History and Science Fiction," given by science fiction author Paul Levinson.
Paul is also a Professor of Communication and Media Studies at Fordham University, where he is a colleague of Lance Strate. You can read about that Havdallah Talk on Lance's blog, in a post entitled, The Plotz to Save Socrates (our congregational blog wasn't launched until 2010). And Lance's recent blog post on the anthology, Interfacing With the Cosmos, includes additional links and video.
