High Fantastic cover

Many important fantastists and science fiction writers have lived and written in Colorado from the 1940s to the 1990s. For some, Colorado did not feature prominently in their work. But for others, its high mountains and deserts and unique urban enclaves proved a profoundly interesting backdrop for works of imagination.

Now editor Steve Rasnic Tem has assembled some of the best writing in the field, much of it entirely new or previously uncollected, with a notable cast of contributors including Vance Aandahl, Michael Bishop, Ed Bryant, Joanne Greenberg, Wil McCarthy, Dan Simmons, Melanie Tem, Don Webb, Connie Willis and others.

In addition to fiction, poetry and comic art, High Fantastic is illustrated with art of the fantastic by Colorado artists of the 1940s on, selected and discussed by art editor Lee Ballentine. Ed Bryant has contributed a comprehensive history of genre writers and writing in the state.
