The University of Western Australia Press will launch anthology Earth is But a Star: Excursions Through Science Fiction to the Far Future, edited by Damien Broderick, at this month's National Convention in Perth.
Produced in a format similar to the earlier UWA Press anthology Women
of Other Worlds, which Broderick credits with breaking the trail, the 466-page
book includes 31 individual pieces, a mix of reprint fiction and commentary.
According to the editor, "the fiction ranges from classic dying earth
stuff, including some from before Jack Vance invented the term, to
recent work by Steve Baxter and a new piece by Rosaleen Love", and most of the
essay material was commissioned specifically for the volume.
