There has been some sf in Albanian since the late 1960s, but not until 1978 was the first sf book published there. By 1991 there had been about a dozen, of which five were by Thanas Qerama, a prolific writer and also an editor of juvenile science magazines; examples are Roboti i pabindur ["Disobedient Robot"] (coll 1981), Një javë në vitin 2044 ["One Week in the Year 2044"] (1982) and Misteri i tempullit të lashtë ["Mystery of the Old Church"] (1987). The following authors have written at least one sf book each: A Bishqemi, N Deda, B Dedja, Vangjel Dilo, Dh. Konomi, Flamur Topi and B Xhano. [JO]
