ORDER IN THE COURT! A new anthology of science fiction stories that explores what the future of jurisprudence might well be like, with thrilling, hilarious, and downright entertaining results! So much fun, it oughta be illegal! Stories by Robert A. Heinlein, Larry Correia, Clifford D. Simak, Sarah A. Hoyt, and more.


Whatever the future may hold, one thing is certain: whenever two people get together, the possibility for disagreement will always be present. And when there are conflicts that need settling, lawyers won’t be far behind. From ambulance chasers out to line their own pockets with the client’s money to champions of Justice and Law with a capital J and L, attorneys of all stripes will no doubt follow us to the stars and beyond. Here then, a collection of science fiction tales of men and women who try to balance the scales of justice on a cosmic scale.

An artist tries to disprove the old adage of a man who acts as his own attorney having a fool for a client when he finds himself accused of the heinous crime . . . of drawing portraits on an alien world in Tom Kidd’s “The Sketcher.” An attorney has the unenviable job of defending a computer program accused of murder in Tony Daniel’s “Checksum, Checkmate.” And in Larry Correia’s “Lawyer Fight,” the battle for justice becomes literal when Monster Hunter International is called in to clean up a law office overrun by zombies.

Plus, classics by Robert A. Heinlein, Larry Niven, Clifford D. Simak, Robert Silverberg, and more, and newer stories by Sarah A. Hoyt, Alex Shvartsman, and Alvaro Zinos-Amaro, and still other stellar talents bringing down the judge’s gavel with a verdict of excellent entertainment.
