Gathered together for the first time from a major publisher are the short stories of Adam Roberts. Unique twisted visions from the edges and the centre of the SF genres. Stories that carry Adam Roberts' trademark elegance of style and restless enquiry of the genre he loves so much. Acclaimed stories, some that have appeared in magazines, some in anthologies, some appearing for the first time. Stories to make you think, to make you laugh, to make you wonder, to make you uneasy. Stories that ask questions, stories that sow mysteries. But always stories that entertain.
There are times when you’re reading that you really want stories that you can dive into during journeys, or something a little different for your lunch break and that’s where short stories really weave their magical influence, or in the case of Adam Robots, programme you with their influence as his own brand of Sci-Fi short stories comes to the fore in this publication by Gollancz.
Each have their own moral, their own wonderful twist which when blended with the authors ability to weave a tale that really drags you in does exactly what the reader wants out of these types of story. Add to the mix a cracking sense of wonderment, some great twists as well as characters that will stay within your memory and all round you’re in for a treat.
