Notes

  • Notes on variant texts:

    Originally published in the anthology New Writings in SF in 1964: the story was Broderick's first professional sale, when he was twenty. This original version of the story was reprinted in Climbing Mount Implausible. The version in Uncle Bones is heavily revised.

    The novella also formed the basis of the 1993 novel of the same name. According to the introduction to Climbing Mount Implausible, however, the novel is the result of 'altering and elaborating the far-future culture portrayed in the original version, re-naming most of the central characters, and introducing new subtleties into their motivations' (pp.7-8). The novel has therefore been treated as an adaptation of the original story.

Works about this Work

The Fiction of the Future : Australian Science Fiction Russell Blackford , 2012 single work criticism
— Appears in: Sold by the Millions : Australia's Bestsellers 2012; (p. 128-140)
'According to Russell Blackford 'commercial science fiction is the most international of literary forms.' He observes that 'Australian SF continues to flourish, even if it trails heroic fantasy in mass-market appeal.' Australian SF writers although published internationally, with a dedicated fan followings in USA, UK and Europe, were overlooked for a very long time by Australian multinational publishers. The international editions had to be imported and were then distributed in Australia (Congreve and Marquardt 8). Blackford in his chapter throws light on the history of Australian SF and observes how Australian SF writers, with their concern for the future, achieved a powerful synthesis in form and content. The progress of Australian SF, maturity of style in the work of younger writers, and massive worldwide sales make Blackford optimistic as he asserts that 'the best Australian writers in the genre will be prominent players on the world stage.'
