FICTION & LITERATURE
Released: July 7, 1999

"If you considered Australia too remote and sparsely populated to be science fictionally important—well, think again."
Not the first volume of Australian SF (editor Van Iken's rather indiscriminate collection arrived here in 1984) but by far the most significant: 20 substantial tales from the modern era, the majority of whose authors will be familiar to Kirkus regulars and SF-story buffs. A. Bertram Chandler (1912—84) offers an ingenious explanation for why Australian Aborigines revere Ayer's Rock. Read full book review >
