SYNOPSIS: Other Canadas is the first anthology of Canadian science fiction and fantasy. It was edited by John Robert Colombo, who combined his encyclopedic knowledge of things Canadian with his long-time love of the literature of the fantastic to produce a book that is at once entertaining to read and an intriguing, speculative look at Canada - its alternate pasts, parallel presents, and possible futures. Included in Other Canadas are: a preface by the editor (who discusses the four characteristics of Canadian SF&F); excerpts from four novels; 17 short stories; 27 poems by 13 poets; two critical articles; one prophetic essay (written in 1883, about the Dominion in 1983); a film script (the National Film Board's Universe); and a brief annotated bibliography. Such native-born writers as Phyllis Gotlieb and Margaret Atwood are represented, as well as Canadian-born writers living in the United States, like A.E. van Vogt and Gordon R. Dickson. New Canadians, like Judith Merril and Spider Robinson, are included; and even non-Canadians, Cyrano de Bergerac and Jules Verne, with excerpts from imaginative works set in New France and the Arctic. Other Canadas is a pioneering anthology and an important one, for it reveals a new and unexpected dimension of the Canadian imagination. Yes, there is a Canadian science fiction and fantasy, and here is your guide to it. Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Bookseller Inventory # 000154
