Australia's best science fiction writing, collected in one volume.
The Best Australian Science Fiction Writing distils fifty years of creativity. It shows that the most vital writing today is speculative, and that the best SF has long moved beyond outer space to explore all manner of imaginative worlds.
Packed with enthralling and provocative stories, this will be a bible for all lovers of science fiction writing and a perfect introduction for those so far unacquainted with it. Enjoy a cautionary tale of greed and diamonds by the inimitable Jack Dann, ponder an investigation of what it means to be civilized by A. Bertram Chandler and marvel at Sean McMullen's discovery that manned flight was first invented in the middle ages.
Among the many contributors are Peter Carey, Greg Egan, Damien Broderick, Philippa Maddern, George Turner, Rosaleen Love, Jack Wodhams, David Lake, Lucy Sussex, Lee Harding and Sean Williams.
