Solaris have, in a short time, established a fine tradition of publishing top quality anthologies - indeed they are one of the few UK publishers to schedule them with any regularity.
This latest, Solaris Rising: The New Solaris Book of Science Fiction has been put together by Ian Whates, a fine storyteller in his own right (though not one who updates hios web site very often!), and the roll call shows just how well connected Whates is - featuring all new stories by Alastair Reynolds, Peter F Hamilton, Stephen Baxter, Ian McDonald, Paul di Filippo, Ken MacLeod, Adam Roberts, Pat Cadigan, Lavie Tidhar and others, this is a must for fans of SF in its shorter (and some would say, more perfect) form. A paperback original release.
"Solaris Rising is the first in an exciting new series of anthologies that are set to reaffirm Solaris's proud reputation for producing high quality science fiction. The book will feature all original short stories from Peter F. Hamilton, Alastair Reynolds, Stephen Baxter, Paul di Filippo, Adam Roberts, Lavie Tidhar, Ian Watson, Ken MacLeod, Mike Resnick, Tricia Sullivan, Eric Brown, Steve Rasnic Tem along with other top name authors; stories guaranteed to surprise, thrill and delight, demonstrating why science fiction remains the most innovative, satisfying, and downright exciting genre of all."
