AbstractHistoryArchive Description

No single volume could hope to do justice to the wide variety of science fiction now being published throughout the world. In Beyond Tomorrow I have brought together some of the finest contemporary writing from England and America, and combined it with a selection of Australian stories, demonstrating that there are a number of writers in this country already experienced in the difficult art of writing science fiction.

Recent years have witnessed an astonishing flowering of the genre in places as wide afield as Poland, Japan, Russia and South America, to mention only a few. Only a small proportion of this interesting new work has so far been made available in translation, and in some cases rights have proven difficult to obtain. These problems will be solved in time, and I like to think that future publications of this nature will include a representative selection of these important new voices.

'It was jokingly said that he would be late for his own funeral, but Jelks was the kind of technician who was methodical in everything he did. He was the logical operator, for instance to send as observer on the space platform. Unfortunately there was just one thing he missed...' (bertramchandler.com).

Works about this Work

Australian Science Fiction, as Showcased by Australian SF Anthologies Stephan Kraitsowits , 2011 single work criticism
— Appears in: JASAL , Special Issue vol. 11 no. 1 2011; (p. 1-11)
'An apparently convenient way of studying Australian science fiction is to analyse the contents of ready-made anthologies of Australian science fiction. In doing so, the researcher discreetly circumvents the thorny issue of 'What is Australian?' and also 'What is science fiction?' by taking for granted that the texts within collections of Australian sf necessarily are Australian science fiction. Things, however, are never quite so simple and before being able to add to the debate as to what Australian science fiction truly is, it is necessary to overview the 50 odd years separating the most recent sf anthologies from the very first anthology showcasing Australian science fiction and to plot the meandering course of the genre's commercial development.'
