Product Overview

This is the best book of its kind in at least two decades.  It is  a literate, intelligent book  of powerful SF stories from across Europe.  These tales are representativeof the best writers and stories of the last twenty years, written in most of the major contemporary European languages.      "The" "SFWA European Hall  of Fame"  includes  someof the biggest SF names  in Europe, including Joanna Sinisalo, Andreas Eschbach, Elena Arseneva, and Jean-Claude Dunyach.  The appeal of this anthology rests first upon the venerable  "SFWA Hall of Fame" imprimatur, and secondly on the sterling reputation of co-editor/writer James Morrow.   Morrow and his wife Kathryn  spent years arranging for translations of the best in European SF, and working with translators to achieve sharp, polished, and  entertaining  English versions of the stories.  James  Morrow has written a thought-provoking  introductory essay, as well as  informative story notes throughout the collection. This anthology joins the canonical "SFWA Hall of Fame" books that have sold hundreds of thousands of copies over four decades, and belongs in every library of SF, personal or public.
