Description de l’éditeur
Gilgamesh in the Outback. In this Hugo Award winning novella, Ancient Sumerian king, Gilgamesh, found himself in a Hell not so very different from the kingdom in which he came. Faced with nothing much to do for eternity, he continues as a warrior in the eternity of hell.
Gilgamesh’s conservatism and scorn for the modern technologies drove a wedge between him and his closest friend, Enkidu. Gilgamesh joins forces with other denizens of hell, including fantastic pulp writers H.P. Lovecraft and Robert E. Howard, to foil a plot of Queen Elizabeth's to assemble a fortress at the exit of Hell.
“Gilgamesh” is not the only highly-acclaimed master work included within. The other four stories were nominated for multiple major SF awards—and highlight the author’s mastery of the language and his capacity to engage the reader fully in worlds of his own making. Included in this collection are such classic tales: as "Sundance", "Shwartz Between the Galaxies", "Gianni", and "In Entropy’s Jaws".
