What will humans become as we begin to develop an interplanetary and interstellar society? Join Editors Les Johnson and Rob Hampson and their contributing authors to the upcoming fiction/nonfiction anthology "Homo Stellaris" for a discussion of potential changes to human society, psychology, biology and genetics in support of interstellar exploration and colonization.
