Limited Edition $40.00

Produced to honour the centenary of Sir Arthur’s birth, this anthology acts as a fund raiser for the Arthur C. Clarke Award. 
The authors’ brief was simple: deliver us a stunning SF story of precisely 2001 words; and deliver they did. The book features contributions from some of the biggest names in science fiction, including 10 winners of the Clarke Award and 13 authors who have been shortlisted, as well as non-fiction from thrice-winner China Miéville and former judge Neil Gaiman.
