We live, once more, in parlous times. In the last decade we've had war, famine, terrorism, climate change – and now COVID-19. While it is sometimes tempting to give into fear, it is far more tempting to continue to dream, to explore and create.
Science fiction has always asked the tough questions – "what if" and "if this goes on" – but we've also dreamed of the alternatives, the if only solutions to hard problems.
When I first started to put together this bundle, no one had even heard of the novel coronavirus, yet here we have a set of novels and short story collections perfectly suited to the times.
Without darkness, there can be no light. Even the grimmest of these tales illuminate the strength of the human spirit while the brightest reveal the power of hopes and dreams.
And some are just rip-snorting fun, designed to carry you away to other worlds when this one seems a little hard to take. – Hayden Trenholm, Bundoran Press
