Riassunto: Part of a VGSF relaunch of classic Aldiss titles, this book tells of the battle of humanity for survival against huge carnivorous plants and grotesque insect life. Brian Aldiss has won almost every prize in the international SF field, including the Hugo And Nebula Awards, and has also been voted "World's Best Contemporary Writer of Fiction" by the Australians. His most recent successes include the Helliconia trilogy and (with David Wingrove) "Trillion Year Spree: the History of Science Fiction".
L'autore: Brian Aldiss is a distinguished science fiction writer and was made Grand Master of Science Fiction by the Science Fiction Writers of America in 2000. In the sixties he originated the three science-fiction anthologies which combined to form THE PENGUIN SCIENCE FICTION OMNIBUS (1973). Aldiss was awarded an OBE in 2005 for his services to literature. He lives in Oxford.
