Editor Gunn, himself a science fiction writer, has assembled contributions by more than 100 fellow editors, writers, and academics into a lively, informative reference work on the genre. Entries range from long essays on 96 broad topics (e.g., "Cyberpunk," "Radio") to much briefer entries on individual writers, actors, artists, etc. Despite the brevity of many entries, much information is delivered in each, e.g., film entries include major production credits; author entries give extensive publication lists. This heavily illustrated work should be considered a supplement to and not a replacement for Peter Nicholls's The Science Fiction Encyclopedia (Dolphin: Doubleday, 1979. o.p.). Recommended for most reference collections; a circulating copy is also recommended. A.J. Wright, Univ. of Alabama at Birmingham
