The Persistence of Vision

This is Varley’s first story collection — a multiple award winner. It won the Locus Award and the Prix Apollo for Best Single Author Collection. The title story also won a Locus Award and a Hugo and a Nebula. Five other stories were near awards.

PBS turned “Overdrawn at the Memory Bank” into a 3-(out of 10)-Star, made-for-TV movie starring Raul Julia. And “Air Raid” grew into Millennium: novel, screenplay, movie.

The Persistence of Vision was published in the UK as In the Hall of the Martian Kings in 1978.
