In Denmark, the science fiction short story is a thriving genre, though mostly as a subculture. Since 2007, The Danish science fiction association, Science Fiction Cirklen, has published an annual anthology of original science fiction short stories written by Danish authors. The present volume contains a selection from the first two of these annual anthologies.
Many Danish authors place their stories in a local setting, and all of them have something to say in addition to ´just´ being entertaining. You will find philosophical parables, time travels, space yarns, alternate history and much more, as well as stories which in different ways come close to the literary mainstream. The huge AngloAmerican influence on Danish culture since the Second World War is noticeable in the way the authors use the tropes and language of the genre in its modern, international vein.
In making these stories available in English, our aim – besides entertaining the readers – is to demonstrate that science fiction truly is an international genre and that it is being written, even in small European countries like Denmark.
With these words we hope you will enjoy this collection of the ´best of the best´.
