Dark Horizons: An Anthology of Dark Science Fiction

In sfarsit a aparut Antologia, Dark Horizons, unde gasim si povestirea scriitorului Costi GurguThe Glass Plague. Daca nu ati avut ocazia sa o cititi in limba romana acum va puteti delecta cu varianta in limba engleza. Pe Amazon o gasiti aici. De ceva vreme Amazonul nu mai livreaza in Albania (Bookdepository-ul nu a livrat niciodata- ciudat , in conditiile in care e sediu DHL mare linga capitala Tirana, sedii UPS prin orasele serioase, plus alte firme internationale de curierat) asa ca am avut norocul sa o gasesc pe Ebay.co.uk, cam pe la acelasi pret cat e la Amazon.

Nu pot spune ca am auzit de editorul Antologiei,  Charles P. Zaglanis, dar tot el va scoate o alta Antologie Urban Fantasy, Street Magick: Tales of Urban Fantasy, nu e neaparat in zona mea de interes, dar iarasi a ales o alta poveste de Costi Gurgu, Children of God, cred ca e o productie ceva mai recenta, asa ca astept cu interes aparitia.

Din ce am observat, si nici nu ma mira, pasionatii de SF din Romania nu prea vorbesc de succesul scriitorului Costi Gurgu, din varii motive, chiar este trecut cu vederea, insa reusita lui de a fi publicat in antologii cu distributie internationala si nominalizarea la Aurora Awards (Premiile Canadiene de SF si Fantasy!!!), cu povestirea Cosmobotica – scrisa impreuna cu Tony Pi , plus cu aceeasi povestire a fost pe lista de Recomandari de la Premiile Nebula, cred ca vorbeste de la sine despre valoarea scriiturii autorului.

Mai nou si-a lansat si o varianta noua de site, http://costigurgu.com/, unde gasiti mai multe informatii despre scriitor si lucrarile sale.

Pina la aparitia romanului Recipearum (Retetarium, Tritonic, 2006) la White Cat Publication ramane sa ne bucuram de povestirile din Antologiile de mai sus.

Stranded on an off-world base, a tech specialist seeks to outwit a confused AI before it kills him. In the depths of space, a mining ship finds a vein of ore that will make everyone aboard rich—if they figure out what happened to the crew of the ship that was here before them. Waiting for the unwary reader of this book are stories of madmen playing with science beyond their control, and alien creatures with malign intent. Welcome to Dark Horizons, where the future is lost.
