In a major publishing project, all of Brian Aldiss' 300+ short stories are being collected together for the first time. Volume one takes us from his very first story - A Book in Time, published in The Bookseller in 1954 and never seen again until now - right up to his establishment as a major new voice in science fiction by the end of that decade. As he enters his 89th year this is a long-overdue retrospective of the career of one of the most acclaimed science fiction writers of all time, and a true literary legend.
