Faber Stories, a landmark series of individual volumes, presents masters of the short story form at work in a range of genres and styles. Brian Aldiss, who died in 2017, was best known for his science fiction - and in particular for a short story optioned by Stanley Kubrick, which would, under the direction of Steven Spielberg, become the film A.I. Artificial Intelligence. Aldiss`s first book was published by Faber in 1955. This brief, late trilogy contains much of his lively humour, one improbable invention, and a pervasive sense of loneliness and longing. `Sadness is just happiness in reverse,` says someone in a story within the story, `We humans have to put up with it.` Bringing together past, present and future in our ninetieth year, Faber Stories is a celebratory compendium of collectable work.
