The Lowest Heaven is a new anthology of contemporary science fiction, published to coincide with Visions of the Universe, a major exhibition of space imagery at the Royal Observatory Greenwich.
Each story is themed around a body in the Solar System, from the Sun to Halley's Comet.
The stories are illustrated with photographs and artwork selected from the archives of the Royal Observatory, while the book's cover and overall design are the work of award-winning South African illustrator Joey Hi-Fi.
