Overview

A garage owner is called on to repair an Unidentified Flying Object; the seductive rhythmic pulse emanating from beyond a continental shelf village mysteriously beckons the younger submarine generation; a small town cinema projectionist screens 3-D rushes for a 24th century film crew; a divorce case in which the co-respondent is a synthetic human...

Keith Roberts injects his own brand of immediacy and realism through his punchy, readably style and his considerable technical know-how into these stories, ten rare new gems in the dazzling treasury of SF.

About the Author

Keith Roberts (1935-2000) Keith Roberts was an English author and illustrator, who did more than most to define the look of UK Science fiction magazines in the sixties. He won four BFSA awards for his writing and his art, and edited the magazine Science Fantasy (later Impulse) for a time. He was also nominated for Hugo, Nebula (twice) and Arthur C. Clarke awards. He is perhaps best known for his seminal alternative history novel, Pavane, praised by George R. R. Martin: 'No alternate history novel of the past thirty years comes close to equalling Pavane'.
