The Folio Science Fiction Anthology
Illustrated by Florian Schommer
Introduced by Brian W. Aldiss
Edited by Brian W. Aldiss
In this collection created exclusively for The Folio Society, legendary science-fiction writer Brian Aldiss selects and introduces a series of electrifying short stories.
Science fiction has always been a fertile home for the short story. Brian Aldiss, award-wining author of science-fiction classics such as Non-Stop and the Helliconia trilogy, is also a master of the short story – Hothouse, his collection of novelettes, won the Hugo award for short fiction in 1962, while his ‘Super-Toys Last All Summer Long’ was the inspiration for the Steven Spielberg film A.I. Artificial Intelligence. A central figure in the genre for more than 60 years, and a hugely respected editor of numerous anthologies, Aldiss has selected and introduced each story in this special Folio collection. The result is a shining constellation of science-fiction stars, each story exemplifying the very best of the genre.
