Original Language: German
This East German view of science fiction will surprise American fans. The authors characterize American science fiction as "trivial" and "frivolous." In its particularly East European slant, the book resembles Franz Rottensteiner's The Science Fiction Book: An Illustrated History ( LJ 10/1/75). James Gunn's Alternate Worlds ( LJ 9/15/75) and Brian Aldiss's Trillion Year Spree ( LJ 11/15/86) give excellent and broader coverage of the field for the American reader, especially Aldiss's book, since it is more up to date. Librarians may also want to condsider John J. Pierce's Foundations of Science Fiction: A Study in Imagination and Evolution (Greenwood, 1987); only the first volume of this trilogy has been published, however, so a full comparison cannot be made as yet.
