Year's Best Australian Science Fiction/Congreve, Bill/Paper/0975773607/S002-C
Australian science fiction and fantasy have come of age.
You'll find the traditional, the street-smart, the amusing and the adventurous. From urban fantasy to the myths, dreams, and warriors of the future; from the death of the nation to its rebirth; this collection plots a course across the best works of the leading writers and dynamic newcomers. Stories that share a common desire to explore mankind in a moment on the edge. Stories that draw on the vast, often unforgiving, landscape we live in, the multi-cultural nature of the society around us and the lessons we're trying to learn from our history. Stories which feature characters in collision with ideas; characters in search of resolution.
The best stories provoke, inspire and entertain. This is the joy of the written word as it was meant to be: inventive and challenging.
Supplementing the fiction is the editors' insightful summation of the field in Australia, and a list of recommended reading, making this volume a valuable resource as well as a one stop, definitive volume of the best in Australian speculative fiction today.
Contributors include Lynette Aspey, Deborah Biancotti, Damien Broderick, Brendan D. Carson, Rjurik Davidson, Terry Dowling, Brendan Duffy, Margo Lanagan, Geoffrey Maloney, Ben Peek, Cat Sparks, and Kim Westwood.
