Download or read book Another World written by Gardner Dozois and published by Baen Publishing Enterprises. This book was released on 2012-11-15 with total page 137 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: A collection of science fiction classics edited and introduced by the winner of fifteen Hugo awards for best editor, Gardner Dozois. From the introduction: Here is life on another world, in another place, another time. Here is what it is like to wear an alien skin. Here are new concepts, new vistas, magic. . . "Why read science fiction?" It's alive in a world of dead art, dead minds, dead institutions; it's a bright-eyed, irreverent little animal scurrying through a petrified landscape of old dead trees; it's unashamedly potent and prolific in a world that grows increasingly weary and sterile; it dares to raise its voice in boisterous joy, sorrow, and anger in a place full of sour silence and dead echoes. Contains these legendary tales: "The Oldest Soldier" by Fritz Leiber, "After the Myths Went Home," by Robert Silverberg, "The Stars Below," by Ursula K. Le Guin, "Straw," by Gene Wolfe, "On the Gem Planet," by Cordwainer Smith, "Beam Us Home" by James Tiptree, Jr.,"The Barbarian," by Joanna Russ, "Among the Hairy Earthmen," by R. A. Lafferty, "Man in the Jar," by Damon Knight, "Old Hundredth," by Brian W. Aldiss, and "The Signaller," by Keith Roberts. At the publisher's request, this title is sold without DRM (Digital Rights Management). "A fine idea for an anthology _ 'adventures in otherness' is really what SF is all about, isn't it? _ and the stories . . . are a very neat mixture of themes and literary methods, and of course a bunch of very fine examples of first-class narrative prose . . .an artful and elegant group, intelligently chosen."¾Robert Silverberg
Download or read book The Animal Fable in Science Fiction and Fantasy written by Bruce Shaw and published by McFarland. This book was released on 2010-04-23 with total page 268 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Though animal stories and fables stretch back into the antiquity of ancient India, Persia, Greece and Rome, the reasons for writing them and their resonance for readers (and listeners) remain consistent to the present. This work argues that they were essential sources of amusement and instruction—and were also often profoundly unsettling. Such authors in the realm of the animal fable as Tolkien, Freud, Voltaire, Bakhtin, Cordwainer Smith, Karel Čapek, Vladimir Propp, and many more are discussed.

Download or read book H Beam Piper written by John F. Carr and published by McFarland. This book was released on 2008-05-23 with total page 262 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: H. Beam Piper is one of science fiction's most enigmatic writers. In 1946 Piper appeared seemingly from out of nowhere, already at the top of his form. He published a number of memorable short stories in the premier science fiction magazine of the time, Astounding Science Fiction, under legendary editor John W. Campbell. Piper quickly became friends with many of the top writers of the day, including Lester Del Rey, Fletcher Pratt, Robert Heinlein and L. Sprague de Camp. Piper also successfully made the turn from promising short story writer to major novelist, authoring Four-Day Planet, Cosmic Computer, Lord Kalvan of Otherwhen and Little Fuzzy, which was nominated for a Hugo award. Even those who counted Piper among their friends knew very little about the man or his life as a railroad yard bull in Altoona, Pennsylvania. This biography illuminates H. Beam Piper, both the writer and the man, and answers lingering questions about his death. Appendices include a number of Piper's personal papers, a complete bibliography of Piper's works, and an essay on Piper's Terro-Human Future History series.
