Subterranean Press has announced the 2009 release of Caitlín R. Kiernan’s A Is For Alien, a gathering of her science fiction stories, including the novellas “Bradbury Weather” and “Zero Summer.” The flap copy of the collection: “A is for Alien is award-winning author Caitlín R. Kiernan’s first collection devoted entirely to her science-fiction work. It includes the critically acclaimed novelette ‘Riding the White Bull”‘(chosen for The Year’s Best Science Fiction, 22nd Annual Collection), along with seven other tales of a less-than-utopian future. Ranging from the wastelands and mountains of Mars to the streets of a late 21st-Century Manhattan, from the moons of Europa and Saturn to an iceless Antarctica, these tales bring Kiernan’s trademark brand of the eco-gothic to bear on what it means to be human and the paths and decisions that may face mankind only a little farther along.”

A Is For Alien will be published in two unique editions, a cloth bound trade hardcover ($25), and a signed limited edition of 250 copies, with a chapbook of additional fiction ($45). To pre-order: A Is For Alien
