AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Norma Hemming (1928-1960) was Australia’s first significant female science fiction writer. This volume brings together all the nineteen stories she published in the 1950s, before her untimely death from breast cancer. Also included are two previously unpublished plays, originally performed at Australian science fiction conventions in the 1950s. She is now commemorated by the Australian Science Fiction Foundation through the Norma K. Hemming Award, inaugurated at the World Science Fiction Convention in Melbourne in September 2010.'
