We have adorned the lowest heaven with an ornament, the planets...

A string of murders on Venus. Saturn's impossible forest.
Voyager I's message to the stars - returned in kind.
Edible sunlight.

The Lowest Heaven collects seventeen astonishing, never-before-published stories from award-winning authors and provocative new literary voices, each inspired by a body in the solar system, and features extraordinary images drawn from the archives of the Royal Observatory Greenwich.

Swift, Jon Courtenay Grimwood, Mark Charan Newton, Kaaron Warren, Lavie Tidhar, Esther Saxey, David Bryher, S.L. Grey, Kameron Hurley, Matt Jones and James Smythe. The Lowest Heaven is introduced by Dr. Marek Kukula, Public Astronomer at the Royal Observatory, with a cover designed by award-winning artist Joey Hi-Fi.

Contains Sophia McDougall's "Golden Apple", a finalist for the British Fantasy Awards, E.J. Swift's "Saga's Children", a finalist for the BSFA and Kaaron Warren's "Air, Water and the Grove", finalist for the Ditmar and winner of the Aurealis Awards.

This is the solar system as you've never seen it before.
