Wizard’s Tower Press is pleased to announce the publication of an ebook edition of Kontakt: An Anthology of Croatian SF, edited by Tatjana Jambrišak and Darko Macan.

This Croatian anthology, originally published in paperback for the 2012 the European Science Fiction Convention (Eurocon) in Zagreb where it was given away free to members, was an immediate hit with readers of the genre. “We wanted to present the best Croatian genre stories to the English-speaking audiences, the intention was to showcase Croatian science fiction and fantasy fiction to the wider world,” said Darko Macan. All the stories are translated into English, and many of the authors have won Croatian national genre literary awards.

Of the twelve stories in the book, two have already achieved recognition outside of Croatia. “The Corridor” by Darko Macan won the Lapis Histriae, an international short story competition open to writers from Italy, Slovenia, Croatia, Serbia, Bosnia and Montenegro. “Every Time We Say Goodbye” by Zoran Vlahovi? received an honorable mention in the 2013 Science Fiction and Fantasy Translation Awards. Until now, the anthology has never been generally available for sale.

“I had little idea of what to expect when I visited Croatia for the Eurocon, and was blown away by the friendliness, enthusiasm and organizational skills of the people that I met. I liked the country so much that I went back again last year. I am delighted to be able to bring some of the finest science fiction and fantasy by Croatian writers to a wider audience,” said Cheryl Morgan, owner of Wizard’s Tower Press.

Kontakt: An Anthology of Croatian SF will be available for the Kindle, and in the standard epub format for other reading devices and computers. It will be available worldwide. Copies are available now from the Wizard’s Tower bookstore (, and will appear in other popular stores in due course.

  1. Have to agree about how friendly the Croatian fans are! The book was given to all members, and I remember reading through it at the time and been impressed with it.

    Will have to dig out my copy and reread!
