Synopsis: This enormous volume is the first comprehensive encyclopedia of fantastic literature of the nineteenth century. From detective fiction to historical novels, from well-known authors like Jules Verne and H.G. Wells, to Russian newspaper serials and Chinese martial arts novels, THE ENCYCLOPEDIA OF FANTASTIC VICTORIANA is a truly exhaustive look at every aspect of fantastic literature in the days of Queen Victoria. Readers of science fiction and fantasy will be surprised to find here the roots of genres thought to be strictly contemporary, and students of literature will be amazed at the breadth and scope of writings produced in the Victoriana era. This is an invaluable reference, and truly one-of-a-kind.
About the Author: Jess Nevins, a reference librarian at Sam Houston State University, is the author of Heroes & Monsters and A Blazing World, the two volume companion editions to the popular graphic novel series The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen. He lives in Huntsville, Texas.
