Synopsis

Part Two of the complete Aldiss Short Stories from the 1970s. A must-have for collectors, reissued as part of the Brian Aldiss Collection.

This collection gathers together, for the very first time, Brian Aldiss' complete catalogue of short stories from the 1970s, in two parts.

Taken from diverse and often rare sources, the works in this collection chart the blossoming career of one of Britain's most beloved authors. From the brutal invasion of a world of dreamless vegetarians to the mother who retreats to a planetoid, frozen in time, this book proves once again that Aldiss' gifted prose and unparalleled imagination never fail to challenge and delight.

The two parts of the 1970s short story collection are must-have volumes for all Aldiss fans, and an excellent introduction to the work of a true master.

THE BRIAN ALDISS COLLECTION INCLUDES OVER 50 BOOKS AND SPANS THE AUTHOR'S ENTIRE CAREER, FROM HIS DEBUT IN 1955 TO HIS MORE RECENT WORK.

About the Publisher

Harper Voyager

With a heritage stretching back nearly 200 years, HarperCollins is one of the world's foremost English-language publishers, offering the best quality content right across the spectrum, from cutting-edge contemporary fiction to digital hymnbooks and pretty much everything in between. In the UK, the Glasgow-based William Collins & Sons was founded in 1819 and published a range of bibles, atlases and dictionaries, later including classic authors HG Wells, Agatha Christie, JRR Tolkien and CS Lewis. The original Harper Brothers Company was established in New York City in 1817 and over the years published the works of Mark Twain, the Bronte Sisters, Thackeray, Dickens, John F Kennedy and Martin Luther King Jr. In 1987, Harper & Row, as it had then become, was acquired by News Corporation. The worldwide group was formed following News Corp's 1990 acquisition of William Collins & Sons. Today we publish some of the world's foremost authors, from Nobel prize-winners to worldwide bestsellers recent successes including the Booker-winning Wolf Hall and Bring Up The Bodies by Hilary Mantel, and George RR Martin's blockbusting A Song of Ice and Fire series.
