I wonder if it would be a good idea to rename this article to Science fiction and fantasy in Poland, so we can write about Sapkowski, Kres and others. Comments? --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus Talk 17:56, 14 June 2006 (UTC)

I'm thinking of adding the pre-history of sf in Poland. Mikołaj Doświadczyński is sf as well... //Halibutt 19:30, 15 June 2006 (UTC)
And I read somewhere that Mickiewicz wrote a Verne-like novel too, fragments of which where published I think in Nowa(?) Fantastyka. But I'd have to google for some confirmation (I can be remembering an April Fool's joke, after all). As for M.D., I am not sure if he classifies: the 'old books' had lots of elements of fantasy, but we don't classify Homer's wokrs as fantasy, do we?--Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus Talk 19:50, 15 June 2006 (UTC)
Update: Mickiewicz work is called „Historia Przyszłości”. See [1]. Or "Wizje przyszłości": [2]. Dukaj mentions it here, so it would appear it is not a joke.--Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus Talk 19:55, 15 June 2006 (UTC)

Alternative history novels dealing with Poland[edit]

Could someone list some books for me that deal with alternative histories and Poland? Such as... because of Czochralski, growing large crystals of metal and semi-conductors was found out much earlier and leads to Poland being the most electronically advanced nation on Earth. Televisions, computers, telephones, robots, microwave ovens and quartz watches all by the year 1925. Anything along those lines?

Search Uchronia for mentions of Poland. This is one of my hobbies, and I can tell you there are not many books dealing with alt hist and Poland - but there are a few. The uchronia list is not complete. Are you interested with books by Polish authors, with Poland being a pivotal divergence point, action being set significantly in Poland or just mentioning Poland a little? Also, please consider registering.-- Piot Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus | talk  04:00, 24 April 2007 (UTC)
There's Leo Frankowski's English (language) time-travel series about Conrad Stargard, an idealistic young Polish engineer who gets cast back to 13th-century Poland and realizes he only has a few years to make Poland technologically-advanced enough to resist the coming onslaught of the Mongols. --Orange Mike 04:07, 24 April 2007 (UTC)
Thanks for reminding me of that, I need to read it finally. Few other titles I'd throw: Xavras Wyżryn and some short stories of Jacek Dukaj, Królowa Joanna d'Arc of Konrad T. Lewandowski, Krzyżacki Poker of Dariusz Spychalski, some recent stuff by Andrzej Pilipiuk (Operacja Dzień Wskrzeszenia, and short stories (Szansa, Atomowa ruletka)... the only downside to those is you have to read Polish :) -- Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus | talk  04:41, 24 April 2007 (UTC)
