Description

"The SWFA European Hall of Fame" is the best book of its kind in at least two decades. It is a literate, intelligent collection of powerful science fiction stories from across Europe. These tales are representative of the best writers and stories in the last twenty years, written in most of the major contemporary European languages. "The SWFA European Hall of Fame" includes some of the biggest science fiction names in Europe, including Joanna Sinisalo, Andreas Eschbach, Elena Arseneva, and Jean-Claude Dunyach. The appeal of this anthology rests first upon the venerable "SFWA Hall of Fame" imprimatur, and secondly on the sterling reputation of co-editor/ writer James Morrow. Morrow and his wife Kathryn spent six years arranging for translations of the best in European science fiction and working with translators to achieve sharp, polished, entertaining English versions of the stories. James Morrow has written a thought-provoking introductory essay, as well as informative story notes throughout the collection.
This anthology joins the canonical "SFWA Hall of Fame" books that have sold hundreds of thousands of copies over four decades of sale, and belongs in every science fiction library, personal or public.

Review quote

Quotes on James Morrow's latest novel, "The Last Witchfinder" "Here are storytelling, showmanship, and provocative book-club bait...all rolled into one inventive feat.-- Janet Maslin, "The New York Times" "James Morrow's novel about early American witchcraft pulls off so many dazzling fears of literary magic that in a different century he'd have been burned at the stake ... The result is a fantastical story mixed so cunningly with real-life details that your vision of America's past may never awaken from Morrow's spell."-- "Washington Post Book World" "The book is a treat for history lovers."-- "USA Today"
