Two of Aldiss' essay collections from the mid-1980s in one volume. In this warm, chatty, opinionated collection of essays, Brian Aldiss tells the reader a bit about his youth, holds forth on the position of science fiction within the literary and scientific worlds and reveals some of the processes at work in his own writing. This volume also includes the companion collection ...And the Lurid Glare of the Comet.


'For decades, Brian Aldiss has been among our most prolific and consistently stylish writers' The Telegraph 'Aldiss has rarely been far from SF's intellectual centre ' SFX Magazine
