    y Alien Shores : An Anthology of Australian Science Fiction Peter McNamara (editor), Margaret Winch (editor), North Adelaide : Aphelion Publications , 1994 Z296377 1994 anthology short story science fiction satire Comprising only seven reprints, the new stories are from SF luminaries such as George Turner, Lucy Sussex and Sean McMullen. 'Several of the stories have an almost 1950s golden age tinge to them - for example, George Turner's first-contact story 'Flowering Mandrake,' in which humanity and aliens find they have little in common. In 'The Miocene Arrow Sean McMullen continues his stories in which prehistoric cetaceans take revenge on humanity. In 'Kay and Phil,' Lucy Sussex produces a wonderful vignette of Philip K. Dick in 1961 and the imaginary influences on his cult novel The Man in the High Castle... Fascinating is [Damien Broderick's] short introduction [to 'The Magi'], which tells of his meeting with a prostitute who loves science fiction at a seminar at the Humanities Research Centre at ANU (Colin Steele, SF Commentary No 77, p.53).
