9780870715556: Hive of Dreams: Contemporary Science Fiction from the Pacific Northwest (Northwest Readers)

This unique collection brings together for the first time the work of a dozen internationally prominent science fiction writers who make their home in the Pacific Northwest. Editor Grace L. Dillon's informative introduction shows how the region's culture, economy, and natural environment are reflected in the work of these different authors. Exploring tensions between our increasing affinity with technology and traditional concerns with environmental sustainability, the works presented here demonstrate the spirit that makes Northwest science fiction distinctive. "Hive of Dreams begins in the forests and mountains of the Northwest with Ursula Le Guin's "The Good Trip" and ends in the cities and multinational conglomerates of the Pacific Rim with William Gibson's "Idoru. In the space between, readers will encounter writings by such notable authors as Greg Bear, Octavia Butler, Douglas Coupland, Molly Gloss, Richard Powers, Joanna Russ, Neal Stephenson, and John Varley, among others. "Hive of Dreams will clearly establish the unique signature of Northwest writers within the broader world and traditions of science fiction. Lovers of great science fiction, as well as teachers and students of contemporary literature in general, will find much of interest in this exciting collection. The book will also appeal to readers looking for new writers or for an introduction to the genre.
