Product Details


Product Description

From Amazon

If our planet seems a little overexplored these days--well, there are always other worlds to survey. Australian science fiction icon Damien Broderick has collected stories from some of the world's best sci-fi writers in Not the Only Planet, a book of sci-fi travel that propels the imagination on an unbridled tour of worlds no travel agent will ever have on file.

The collection probes the vastness of the space-time continuum, as readers join a tour to the Crucifixion in Garry Kilworth's "Let's Go to Golgotha!"; photograph mountains on Mars in Brian W. Aldiss's "The Difficulties Involved in Photographing Nix Olympica"; and glean essential phrases for the space-traveling earthling ("You are not my guide. My guide was bipedal") in Joanna Russ's "Useful Phrases for the Tourist." From humorous to stark and unsettling, like all good sci-fi and travel writing, these stories investigate the many interiors of the human soul. A provocative book that truly takes travel to new dimensions. --Byron Ricks

Book Description

Like a cyborg and his spaceship, travel and science fiction have always gone together. Not the Only Planet brings together a unique collection of stories about travel by internationally celebrated sf writers.

A science fiction travel anthology - what a great idea. One of my favorite things about traveling is the time it gives me to read and I especially enjoy reading science fiction. Whether the reading takes place on an airplane or in Paris or Bangkok its time well spent!
All of the stories selected are excellent. They are all travel stories that most people can relate to on some level.
I love getting short story anthologies because they give you a chance to try a number of different authors and short stories lend themselves to a busy schedule. This book is one to bring along on a trip and pass along to another traveler in a cafe somewhere when you are finished.
