Indian Science Fiction The Space Cuckoo and other stories

For far too long, science fiction has been considered an American or British field — but the brilliant Arvind Mishra shows that Indian science fiction is just as important, just as powerful, and just as relevant. A wonderful collection!

— Robert J. Sawyer, Hugo and Nebula Award-winning author

Dr. Arvind Mishra’s stories deal with themes that show a clear influence of classic western SF, but retain a distinct Indian flavour in their approach. Readers will have the best of both worlds.

Indian science fiction is a lost continent of wonders ripe for discovery by the global SF community, and Arvind Mishra is one of its greatest treasures. His stories recollect the classic voices of the Golden Age like Clarke and Asimov combined with the mythic imagery of contemporary India. Reading the stories of Arvind Mishra in their first translation from Hindi is a revelation awaiting for English language SF fans, and a truly seminal event for Mytho-SF.
