Nest of Worlds is the first novel to appear in English from Polish science fiction master Marek S. Huberath. A metafictional adventure through a dystopia that owes as much to Borges, Saramago, and even Thomas More as it does to Stanislaw Lem, Nest of Worlds is a meditation on the narrative nature of reality, the resilience of love, and an inquiry into the darkest aspects of the human psyche and the organization of civilization.

Marek S.

Huberath is a pseudonym for a physicist from Krakow who began publishing his fantastic works in the late 1980s. His real name is Hubert Harańczyk. Born April 24, 1954. He is engaged in biophysics and solid state physics at the Institute of Physics of the Jagiellonian University. He made his debut in 1987, when his story "Wrócieeś Sneogg, wiedziaam ...", submitted to the literary competition in the magazine "Fantastyka", won first place. It was a dark story about the aftermath of war and radiation that resonated with many readers. The story has been translated into several languages, including Russian and English (first in 1990 - "You Came Back, Sneogg, I Knew It ...", and later, with a more adequate translation of the title, as "Yoo Retoont, Sneogg.

Ay Noo "). For a time, Huberat was associated with this monthly and a group of young authors, with whom the editor of the magazine, Maciej Parowski, worked. The first works of two today`s leaders of Polish science fiction - Andrzej Sapkowski and Jacek Dukai, and such a brilliant, but not long-written author like Maciej Zherdinsky - also appeared there, being sent to the competition. Marek Huberat started working more actively already in the nineties. He wrote several more successful stories, after which he took up the novel, but this process stretched out for him for almost ten years. During this time, several other books of the writer were published. In his works, he mainly deals with the topics of philosophy, religion and morality - he is interested in whether people lose their human qualities in extreme and unusual circumstances, or remain people ...

Several times the works of Marek Hubert were awarded him a prize. Janusz Seidel. He is also an honorary member of the Galician Fantasy Fans Guild. Not so much has been written by the author, but he is undoubtedly one of the leading contemporary science fiction writers in Poland. Every new book by Huber is eagerly awaited by loyal readers. Another story of the writer, Kara większa (The Greater Punishment, in the anthology The Dedalus Book of Polish Fantasy), was translated into English. The now classic Wrócieeś Sneogg, wiedziaam ...
