Science fiction is at the intersection of numerous fields. It is literature which draws on popular culture, and engages in speculation about science, history, and all varieties of social relations. This volume brings together essays by scholars and practitioners of science fiction, which look at the genre from different angles. It examines science fiction from Thomas More to the present day; and introduces important critical approaches (including Marxism, postmodernism, feminism and queer theory).

Review:

"...an excellent introduction..." Steven Silver's Reviews

"The quality of the writing is consistently high, combining clever observation, crisp phrasing, and edifying illustration. [...] We all should be glad to have the book, which performs a conisiderable and important sevice: it will be a core text of our critical toolbox for years to come." Science Fiction Studies

"An excellent introduction to SF as a field and also a book that can be read with interest by both SF fans and by literature students." Emerald City
