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.
