The Making of an Epic
Not included in either Margaret Aldiss’s excellent bibliography, The Work of Brian W. Aldiss, or in Phil Stephensen-Payne’s bibliography, Brian W. Aldiss: a Man for All Seasons, this 12 page, A4 booklet was published to promote Helliconia Spring. It contains just a few hundred words of text by Aldiss about the origins of the novel, plus photographs, drawings and diagrams. Publisher not stated, but presumably Jonathan Cape who published Helliconia Spring, for promotional purposes only.
