From the Author:
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 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.
About the Author:
Jared Shurin has edited over a dozen anthologies on topics ranging from mummies to Dickens. He's been a finalist for the Shirley Jackson and Hugo Awards, and twice won the British Fantasy Award for Non-Fiction. He's also the editor of Pornokitsch, the award-winning pop culture site which is (sadly) not nearly as naughty as it sounds.
