from the editor's introduction

" I was flattered to be aked to produce the 2005 Worldcon songbook for Interaction, but I did wonder what I was letting myself in for. This time I would be collecting songs from all over the world, not just one country. ......... The collection of songs has gradually grown. It started with a few songs on vastly different topics. Gradually more songs trickled in and the gaps started to fill as the topics spread even broader. Within this book you'll find songs from two continents; songs on science fiction, on space flight and technology, and on fantasy; parodies, spoken verse, and songs that are both serious and silly. .... Come and join me - under filk wood."

Seventy-one songs, many with original music and/or guitar chords - more than thirty authors, and eight illustrators.
