Review quote

A ground-breaking anthology. . . . The stories in The SFWA European Hall of Fame are not quite like any sf I've read before. Like much of the best sf, these stories tend to be allegorical, often absurdist, existential, and just plain weird. . . . You would be hard pressed to find another anthology whose works were more different from one another--and from the stories you're accustomed to--than this one. It's a mind-opening journey."--Cory Doctorow "A ground-breaking anthology. . . . The stories in The SFWA European Hall of Fame are not quite like any sf I've read before.

These 'disciplined speculations' by European writers and their painstaking translators not only excite the mind, they move the heart." --Publishers Weekly, (starred review) A ground-breaking anthology. . . .

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"
