Christopher Priest

Reviews of AN INFINITE SUMMER (1979)

An Infinite Summer

[Five long stories about desire and love, dreams of the past, distant islands, lost happiness, and growing up.]

Publishers Weekly:

Priest is arguably the best new SF writer to emerge in Britain in the '70s, and these five stories demonstrate the range and depth of his talent. All these stories are full of atmosphere, elegant in form and brimming with memorable images and striking ideas. If you can read only one collection of an SF author's stories this year, this should be it.

Washington Post:

H. G. Wells invented scientific romances, but Priest has made himself a master of romantic science fiction, told with elegance, touched with the bitter-sweet, darkly erotic.
