Afterword to Horst Pukallus’ collection

Begedia Verlag, coming publisher of one of my own works, just published Horst Pukallus‘ latest story collection Fl├╝sterasphalt. I collaborated with Horst – one of the most important writers, translators and critics in postwar German science fiction – on numerous occasions in the last twenty years (including our novel Hinter den Mauern der Zeit, published by Heyne in 1989). For his new book which collects stories written within the last ten years I contributed an afterword with some remarks on the tradition of New Wave science fiction that influenced Horst’s writings.
