Synopsis : A finalist for the World Fantasy Award.
Many important fantasists and science fiction writers have lived and written in Colorado from the 1940s to the 1990s. For some, Colorado did not feature prominently in their work. But for others, its high mountains and deserts and unique urban enclaves proved a profoundly interesting backdrop for works of imagination.
Now editor Steve Rasnic Tem has assembled a notable cast of contributors and some of the best writing in the field, much of it entirely new or previously uncollected. Work is included from Vance Aandahl, Michael Bishop, Ed Bryant, Joanne Greenberg, Wil McCarthy, Stanley Mullen, Bruce Holland Rogers, Melanie Tem, Don Webb, Connie Willis and many others. An original novella by Dan Simmons is also included in its first appearance in print.
In addition to the fiction, High Fantastic is illustrated with art of the fantastic created by Colorado artists of the 1940s through the 1990s. Ed Bryant has contributed a history of genre writers and writing in Colorado, and art editor Lee Ballentine has also contributed an essay on Art and Science Fiction in the state.
A propos de l'auteur: Editor Steve Rasnic Tem won the British Fantasy Award in 1988, and has been nominated for the Bram Stoker Award and the World Fantasy Award for his short fiction. Before undertaking High Fantastic, he edited the Umbral Anthology, which was a finalist for the Philip K. Dick Award.
