Far Horizons, edited by Robert Silverberg, is an anthology of eleven short works of science fiction by major authors in the genre, including one by Silverberg himself. It contains an introduction explaining the project by Silverberg, and each story has an introduction and occasionally an afterword by its author. Each story was a new (as of 1999) work set in one of the principal fictional universes of each author (the exact ones are noted in the Contents section below).

Silverberg was also the editor of the Legends anthologies, which similarly contain new short works by fantasy authors set in those authors' fantasy universe. Four authors (Card, Le Guin, McCaffrey, and Silverberg) had stories included in both collections.
