'When the moon gets too close and too bright, it makes us crazy. Loony, even. In that spirit, editor Lancelot Schaubert rounded up sci-fi and fantasy writers to write about cosmic influence. The fantasy writers took a more mythological approach, speaking of the symbolic (or perhaps godly) Mercury and Mars and Neptune. The sci-fi writers tell you what it’s like to live on Jupiter and Uranus. All of them, though, speak of the influence of what one writer called “the music of the spheres.” These are stories OF GODS AND GLOBES. They’re quite the ride: they made the editor laugh and cry and chilled him to the bone with terror. And one of the stories made him long for a home that… well for a home he doesn’t think he's ever been to before.'
