Abstract

The Anuário Brasileiro de Literatura Fantástica: Ficçao científica, fantasia e horror no Brasil em 2005 (Directory of Brazilian Fantastic Literature: Science Fiction, Fantasy and Horror in Brazil in 2005) l is the second volume in a projected five-volume series of reference books to be dated 2004-2008 (published 2005-2009) . It was written and edited primarily by the duo Marcello Simão Branco and Cesar Silva, both active or founding members of groups such as the Clube de Leitores de Ficçao Científica (Science Fiction Readers' Club) and the Sociedade Brasileira de Arte Fantástica (Brazilian Society of Fantastic Art) and both founding editors of Brazilian fanzines of the 1980s and 90s such as, respectively, Megalon and Hiperespaço, For the most part each section of the Anuário is attributed to either Simäo Branco or Silva. Other contributors to the 2005 volume are Jorge Candeias, who provides an overview of the fantastic literature published in Portugal in 2005, and M. Elizabeth Ginway, author of Brazilian Science Fiction: Cultural Myths and Nationhood in the Land of the Future, who contributes an invited essay.
