Synopsis

Invisible Planets Collected Fiction by Hannu Rajaniemi

Mindblowingly inventive and beautifully written short stories from the most exciting new name in SF Hannu Rajaniemi exploded onto the SF scene in 2010 with the publication of his first novel The Quantum Thief. Acclaimed by fellow authors such as Charles Stross, Adam Roberts and Alastair Reynolds and brilliantly reviewed everywhere from Interzone to the Times and the Guardian he swiftly established a reputation as an author who could combine extraordinary cutting edge science with beautiful prose and deliver it all with wit, warmth and a delight in the fun of storytelling. It is exactly these qualities that are showcased in this his first collection of short stories.

Reviews

'A collection that combines the hard science smarts of Gregory Benford with the hipster speak-infected experimentation of M John Harrison, it's the perfect starting point for Rajaniemi's fiction' SFX
