(From the publisher):
As an SF writer, Keith Roberts has long been as fascinated with the past as with the future. In his stories, several of which are printed in this collection, he explores parallel worlds, where, but for a quirk of history, we might all be living today. The Grain Kings
, the title story, charts the course of two massive and rival combine harvesters, whole ecosystems in themselves, on a collision path in a vast sea of wheat. The White Boat
is a disturbing atmospheric story of a girl's awakening from a kind of Celtic twilight, and her abduction by Corsairs from the Continent. Weihnachtsabend
explores the eerie parallel world of a German England. There are also barge stories, dragon stories - and a few set on other planets. All testify to the tremendous range of Keith Roberts' imagination - and even more, to his evocative descriptive power.
