Here’s what PS has to say about this book: Did you grow up on a diet of catastrophe novels? Classics such as "War of the Worlds", "Death of Grass", "Day of the Triffids", "Greybeard", "The Purple Cloud" and so forth? Did you hone your teen angst through a diet of disaster stories? This book won't exactly take you back to that Golden Age . . . because the purpose of "Catastrophia" is to revitalize this sub-genre of Science Fiction for the early twenty-first century. To bring a modern sensibility and craft to the business of ending the world as we know it. These days, there's plenty of catastrophe on screen - whether it be at the cinema or on TV - but we have somewhat let the subject slip in the literary world. No longer! Contributors include Adam Roberts, Simon Clark, Stuart Young and Brian Aldiss. Catastrophe stories, what fun! Also available in an elaborate, signed traycased edition. #44783

Price: $34.00
