“First Contact and Time Travel”

Here is the front cover of the new Zoran Živković’s book — First Contact and Time Travel — to be published in early July by the prestigious scientific publisher Springer (Springer International Publishing AG) in its renown “Science and Fiction” series.

This volume collects both essays and fictional material around two core topics in the long career of the Serbian writer, essayist, researcher, publisher and translator. The first topic – first contact – is chiefly represented by his comprehensive essay on “The Theme of First Contact in the SF Works of Arthur C. Clarke and reflected on the literary level with his short stories “The Bookshop and “The Puzzle”. Two shorter essays on the second topic – time travel in SF literature – introduce, amongst others, the well-known and fascinating mosaic novel Time Gifts, which skillfully explores the more literary side of the notions of past, present and future. In the annotations the author provides insights into his take on the subjects presented.
