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.' (Author's abstract)
Alternative Worlds Andrew Macrae , 2009 single work criticism
— Appears in: Overland , Winter no. 195 2009; (p. 29-31)
Macrae argues that there is still a strong dividng line between speculative fiction (an umbrella term encompassing science fiction, fantasy and horror) and literary fiction in Australian culture, literary circles, arts funding and the discourse of the academy. He then discusses two recent anthologies of SF short stories which demonstrate the appeal SF writing can have for a wider readership.
