About this Item

© 1976: A collection of seven short stories by Keith Roberts. 1st printing of 1977 edition. SFBC #1122:- Contents:- Weihnachtsabend / The White Boat / The Passing Of The Dragons / The Trustie Tree / The Lake Of Tuonela / The Grain Kings / I Lose Medea:- Synopsis: As an SF writer, Keith Roberts has long been as fascinated with the past as with the future. In his stories, several of which are printed in this new collection, he explores parallel worlds, where, but for a quirk of history, we might all be living today. The Grain Kings, the title story, charts the course of two massive and rival combine harvesters, whole eco-systems themselves, on a collision path in a vast sea of wheat. 'The White Boat' is a disturbing atmospheric story of a girl's awakening from a kind of Celtic twilight, and her abduction by Corsairs from the Continent. 'Weihnachtsabend' explores the eerie parallel world of a German England. There are also barge stories, dragon stories - and a few set on other planets. All testify to the tremendous range of Keith Roberts' imagination - and even more, to his evocative descriptive power:- (original cost unmarked). Bookseller Inventory # 11.001.00187
