From the earliest days of science fiction, Canada has given readers some of the most important authors in the field. World Fantasy Award-winning editor David G. Hartwell and noted Canadian writer Glenn Grant proved as much with Northern Stars, their first volume of Canadian science fiction. Now, with Northern Suns, they add to that proof some startling names--and incontrovertible evidence.--This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
Margaret Atwood. Robertson Davies. W. P. Kinsella. Not necessarily names one thinks of in connection with science fiction. But they, along with Geoff Ryman, John Clute, Scott Mackay, Nancy Kilpatrick, and sixteen others, here make up a second volume of the superlative speculative fiction that is alive and well and living in Canada. With this dazzling combination of world-renowned masters and bright new lights, Northern Suns is an adventurous mix of visionary futures, otherworldly fantasies, and strange histories that might have been.
Complete with a critical essay, introductory notes, and an updated listing of Canadian science fiction awards, Hartwell and Grant have given us another volume of great SF from the Great White North, one that no science fiction reader can afford to miss.
Welcome to the Canadian invasion.
