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

Romanian SF is almost a century and a half old. And today, Romanian SF is still alive and vivid, with its sense of humour and lyricism and mocking exuberance. Science fiction is a global phenomenon, indeed !” – Cornel Robu
