Featuring new short stories from top names in the genre, Solaris Rising 2 is the latest galaxy-spanning collection of science-fiction from the leader in SF anthologies.

Showcasing the finest new science fiction from both celebrated authors and the most exciting of emerging writers, it follows in the footsteps of the critically-acclaimed first volume, editor Ian Whates has once again gathered together a plethora of thrilling and daring talent.

From unexplored frontiers to common themes of the genre – alien worlds, time travel, artificial intelligence – this is science-fiction made entirely new in the telling. Paul Cornell, Nancy Kress, James Lovegrove, Adrian Tchaikovsky, Nick Harkaway, Allen Steele, Kay Kenyon, Norman Spinrad and many more prove once again why SF continues to be the most innovative, satisfying, and downright exciting genre of all.

The SF short story is a groundbreaking tradition that has brought us some of the greatest science-fiction writers in the world. Solaris continues this tradition with Solaris Rising, its series of SF collections featuring both new and established voices in the modern genre.

 Bizarre futures, gritty other worlds and strange realms, Solaris Rising exemplifies the diversity and innovation that continue to make science fiction the most thrilling genre there is.

“One of the best SF anthologies published this year… there’s almost nothing here that isn’t good or outstanding”
