Review:

"Cybernetic Imagination in Science Fiction shows an amazing combination of understanding of cybernetics and of science fiction. For someone who is interested in science fiction the book should be fascinating. It sets a new high standard for clear, literate, and thoughtful consideration of the field." Isaac Asimov



"Literary analysis, examination of ideas, the evolution of science and technology, and the place of science fiction on the spectrum of literature are thoroughly and readably integrated. In the course of all this, she provides a solid definition of the whole genre." Alternative Futures



"Warrick has done a very creditable job on a formidable task: to present a history of science fiction's treatment of artificial intelligence, to analyze that portion of science fiction in terms of recurring images, patterns, and meaning as well as in terms of cross-fertilization with actual science and technology, and 'to make a critical judgment of the literary merit of SF by a rigorous evaluative study of one if its important subgenres, cybernetic SF.' "Warrick's ostensible criteria for literary merit do not include such customary ones as character development, narrative, technique, style, and structure; but like the rest of us, she seems rather to enjoy a well-told story." - Antioch Review



"The book is provocative, stimulating, worth reading." Modern Fiction Studies
