9780765315366: The SFWA European Hall of Fame: Sixteen Contemporary Masterpieces of Science Fiction from the Continent

This is the best book of its kind in at least two decades. It is a literate, intelligent book of powerful SF stories from across Europe. These tales are representativeof the best writers and stories of the last twenty years, written in most of the major contemporary European languages.   The SFWA European Hall of Fame includes someof the biggest SF names  in Europe, including Joanna Sinisalo, Andreas Eschbach, Elena Arseneva, and Jean-Claude Dunyach. The appeal of this anthology rests first upon the venerable SFWA Hall of Fame imprimatur, and secondly on the sterling reputation of co-editor/writer James Morrow.  Morrow and his wife Kathryn spent years arranging for translations of the best in European SF, and working with translators to achieve sharp, polished, and entertaining English versions of the stories. James Morrow has written a thought-provoking introductory essay, as well as informative story notes throughout the collection. This anthology joins the canonical SFWA Hall of Fame books that have sold hundreds of thousands of copies over four decades, and belongs in every library of SF, personal or public.

About the Author:

KATHRYN MORROW and JAMES MORROW live in State College, PA.

From Booklist:

Except for Stanislaw Lem, contemporary European sf and fantasy writers aren't well represented in English translation. The Morrows, husband and wife, address this long-standing sad situation by teaming top-notch translators and some of today's best European sf and fantasy hands in a superlative anthology. Leading lights of French, Polish, Spanish, and 11 other literatures show their writing chops while employing a very broad range of genre motifs, from time machines to space travel. Jean-Claude Dunyach contributes "Separations," the multidimensional story of a zero-gravity choreographer on an unforgettable space ride with a tormented captain. In "The Fourth Day to Eternity," the Czech Ondrej Neff recounts the fate of a frenzied physicist caught in a confusing time loop. As James Morrow underlines in a witty and literate introduction, a truly representative sampling of European speculative fiction would span volumes. Under the attention-grabbing banner of the SFWA Hall of Fame series, this book tantalizingly introduces English-language readers to Europe's riches and may incite them to clamor for more. Hays, Carl
