Science Fiction with a Bite!

What if we were modified neurologically so we could only tell the truth? What if aliens beamed us proof that God didn't exist? What if the sideshow freak you're seeing is really a visiting alien? What if a teleportation accident created a duplicate you?

Meet the Savage Humanists: the hottest science-fiction writers working today. They use SF's unique powers to comment on the human condition in mordantly funny, satiric stories, each accompanied by commentary by renowned SF scholar Fiona Kelleghan.

Every author in this anthology has been nominated for the Hugo or Nebula Awards - or both! - and many have won. In these pages, you'll find the top names in the SF field including:

Jonathan Lethem (author of the novel Gun, with Occasional Music),
James Morrow (The Philosopher's Apprentice),
Kim Stanley Robinson (Red Mars),
Robert J. Sawyer (Rollback),
Connie Willis (The Doomsday Book), plus
Gregory Frost,
James Patrick Kelly,
John Kessel, and
Tim Sullivan.

About the Author:

Fiona Kelleghan has published SF criticism in Extrapolation, , Science Fiction Studies, Journal of the Fantastic in the Arts, and SFRA Review. She is a librarian at the University of Miami.

From Publishers Weekly:

As librarian and critic Kelleghan observes in her introduction, the authors of these nine savage classics are angry. Gregory Frost's Madonna of Maquiladora tells of a poor neighborhood's miracle that may just be a corporate trick to prevent unionizing. Kim Stanley Robinson mercilessly details the pervasive nature of wartime imagery in A History of the Twentieth Century, with Illustrations. The aliens in James Patrick Kelly's Think Like a Dinosaur, coldly debating humanity's right to interstellar travel, satirize the SF field's own sexism. A few stories never rise above the literary version of street protests, but most entertain and satisfy as they view age-old problems from sharp new angles. Speculative and mainstream readers alike will both enjoy and be unsettled by this bounty of opinions and rage. (Nov.)
