Summary

The first substantive anthology of its kind in two decades, The SFWA European Hall of Fame comprises sixteen stories translated from thirteen languages. During the six years that James and Kathryn Morrow devoted to this project, they strove to find stories that would engage English-speaking readers through familiar motifs-aliens, dystopias, time travel, space exploration, artificial intelligence-while simultaneously showcasing the distinctive and exotic flavors of European SF, from the philosophical to the phantasmagoric. Book jacket.

Author Biography
