The Lowest Heaven is a new anthology of contemporary science fiction published to coincide with Visions of the Universe, a major exhibition of space imagery at the Royal Observatory Greenwich.
Each story in The Lowest Heaven is themed around a body in the Solar System, from the Sun to Halley’s Comet. The stories are illustrated with photographs and artwork selected from the archives of the Royal Observatory, while the book’s cover and overall design are the work of award-winning South African illustrator Joey Hi-Fi.
Edited by Anne C. Perry and Jared Shurin.
This wonderful title arrives signed with a Joey Hi-Fi bookplate exclusive to Forbidden Planet!
“Visually beautiful with an incredibly high quality of fiction. Highly recommended.” - The List
“The whimsical, the hard-core science stories and the outright strange; overall it is a well-crafted ensemble and the solar system theme never seems like a constraint… Starburst has no hesitation in recommending it to any serious reader of science fiction.” - Starburst Magazine
“This back and forth between the actual and the fantastic underpins The Lowest Heaven’s exploration of space, both as we know it and as we can only imagine it.... There can be no questioning the value of this artful anthology: it’s as inspiring as it is inspired.” - Tor.com
