This World and Nearer Ones

 
9780007482344: This World and Nearer Ones

Aldiss' acclaimed 1979 essay collection reissued for the first time in over thirty years. Most of the arts - architecture, music, painting, cinema - come under review in this thought-provoking collection of essays first published in 1979. Aldiss writes here with characteristic humour the complex unity of art and science which forms the inner mystery of science fiction, and reveals new aspects whilst 'exploring the familiar'. Brian says: 'A collection of essays on a wide variety of subjects, including literature, film, politics, current affairs, art and the author's own life.'
