Glorifying Terrorism

23 January, 2007

Dangerous SF Authors Glorify Terrorism

In response to the UK Terrorism Act of 2006, Farah Mendlesohn, co-editor of the Hugo award-winning The Cambridge Companion to Science Fiction brings you Glorifying Terrorism, a science fiction anthology, introduced by Andrew McKie of the Daily Telegraph and with
contributions by top UK SF writers Ian Watson, Gwyneth Jones, Ken MacLeod, and Charles Stross, among others.*

As I understand it, the book is good sf, written and published in order to raise awareness of limitations of free speech on both sides of the Atlantic. It’s not horribly expensive, and it’s in service of a good cause. Please think about buying a copy and placing a notice on your own blog.

*Shamelessly paraphrased from the official press release.

UPDATE: I think the website is still under construction, so please be patient if you aren’t able to click through right away.
