“Worlds and Beings”, Romanian Contemporary Science Fiction Stories

    Worlds Beings

    A comprehensive and panoramic survey of the contemporary Romanian SF. The balance sheet of the genre on the Romanian soil shows that science fiction is now enjoying a lot more dignity and cultural respectability. As for the future, I’m confident : with its yet untapped resources, serene and tenacious, Romanian SF keeps on running.” – Mircea Opriță
