Editorial Reviews


“Compelling . . . A suspenseful genre-bending combination of straight SF and mystery. Consider this required reading.” —Booklist, starred review

“Thought-provoking . . . Stimulating . . . Genuinely haunting . . . [Aldiss is] a major figure in world SF . . . Whatever else Aldiss may be, predictable he is not.” —The Guardian

“I have been reading Aldiss’s work with intense delight for something over forty-five years. . . . Finches of Mars certainly does not disappoint, and in fact shows Aldiss at the top of his game. . . . [This book is] full of incident and history and character.” —Paul Di Filippo

“A science fiction story of ideas . . .  Finches of Mars is a thinking person’s SF novel which wants to engage with the reader, to compel you to reflect on the nature of existence, what it is to be human and our relationship with our home planet Earth as well as our place within the universe.” —Starburst

About the Author

Brian W. Aldiss was born in Norfolk, England, in 1925. Over a long and distinguished writing career, he published award‑winning science fiction (two Hugo Awards, a Nebula Award, and the John W. Campbell Memorial Award); bestselling popular fiction, including the three‑volume Horatio Stubbs saga and the four‑volume the Squire Quartet; experimental fiction such as Report on Probability A and Barefoot in the Head; and many other iconic and pioneering works, including the Helliconia Trilogy. He edited many successful anthologies and published groundbreaking nonfiction, including a magisterial history of science fiction (Billion Year Spree, later revised and expanded as Trillion Year Spree). Among his many short stories, perhaps the most famous was “Super‑Toys Last All Summer Long,” which was adapted for film by Stanley Kubrick and produced and directed after Kubrick’s death by Steven Spielberg as A.I. Artificial Intelligence. Brian W. Aldiss passed away in 2017 at the age of 92.
