New Arrivals, Old Encounters by Brian Aldiss


Brian Aldiss views the drives and achievements, the foibles and failures of mankind from the most wildly imaginative vantage points in his marvellous new collection.

The enduring fascination of Brian Aldiss's fictions is the fresh and unexpected light they throw upon shadowy regions of man's nature. In his richly furnished future states and distant landscapes lies revealing evidence of the fears and threats, possibilities and promise that shape human behaviour.
