Life Beyond Us will be on sale on Apr 22, 2023. This is an original anthology of SF stories and science essays (series: European Astrobiology Institute presents) edited by Julie Novakova, Lucas K. Law, and Susan Forest.


What would life be like if it originated in a frigid ocean beneath an impenetrable shell of ice? Or on a world whose haze obscures any view of the universe beyond? Or on an unfathomable scale in the depths of space?

How would fi rst contact—on Earth, in space, on another planet—transform our understandings of technology, philosophy, and what it means to be human? What kind of cognitive dissonance would society experience, if we discovered a previously unrecognized sentience on Earth?

Life—beyond us.

Dive in as the European Astrobiology Institute presents fi fty-four original SF Stories and Science Essays on life, from microbial to macro, from automatic to sagacious. Each speculative story is followed by a professional essay illuminating the scientifi c underpinnings of the story and providing a new window into the cutting-edge knowledge about exploration for life in the universe.
