Rutherford's Dreams cover

    Well-crafted efforts; quirky, funny, serious, thought-provoking and clever pieces
    Daily Telegraph
    The title story of the book -- a scientific biography of Ernest Rutherford -- had me turning the pages despite myself, and by the end I knew that here was a triumph: a true science fiction story in its purest form, about a real scientist, his contribution to physics, its implications, and the belief-system of the man himself. The wonderful thing about this tale is that almost nothing is made up, yet inthe end the tiniest twist explodes the story beyond science fiction.

A ground-breaking collection of 20 SF stories by 17 New Zealand-based authors featuring themes set around Earth and space. Both the authors and their stories are very highly acclaimed and some, such as Philip Mann and Lyn McConchie, are well-published in the USA and the UK.
