Ærgerlig over at du ikke kan læse noget af vores æresgæst Paul McAuley på dansk? Frygt ikke. Lørdag den 14. juni – Fantasticons åbningsdag – udkommer Under Mars, som er den første samling af Paul McAuleys noveller oversat til dansk.

Bag udgivelsen står Science Fiction Cirklen, og det er Niels Dalgaard, som har udvalgt og oversat novellerne, hvoraf den ældste er fra 1991, mens den nyeste er fra 2012.

Under Mars indeholder følgende ti noveller: Antarktis begynder her (Antarctica Starts Here), Tilflyttere (Incomers), Under Mars (Under Mars), Festplaneten (All Tomorrow’s Parties), Genkrigene (Gene Wars), Hvordan vi mistede Månen, en sand historie af Frank W. Allen (How We Lost The Moon, A True Story By Frank W. Allen, Rev (Reef), To gange Dick (The Two Dicks), En meget britisk historie (A Very British History) og Dr. Luthers assistent (Dr Luther’s Assistant).

Niels Dalgaard interviewer Paul McAuley på Fantasticon søndag kl. 14, og dagen før vil den britiske forfatter læse op sammen med vores anden æresgæst, Rochita Loenen-Ruiz.

Science Fiction Cirklen vil selvfølgelig være til stede på Fantasticon med en stand, hvor publikum kan købe Under Mars og andre af forlagets udgivelser.
