About this title

Synopsis:

German science fiction offers a most interesting contribution to the history and criticism of science fiction. William B. Fischer examines two writers, Kurd Lasswitz and Hans Dominik. He concludes that German science fiction is in distinct contrast to the “normative” tradition of modern Anglo-American science fiction and to many other literary traditions as well. His book demonstrates vividly the social relevance and enduring cultural vitality of science fiction.

Store Description

We are a privately owned rare and out-of-print bookstore situated in the village of historic Kingston, Rhode Island, in an historic 1897 building that previously housed a general store. The store is located close to the entrance to The University of Rhode Island and is open daily. The store contains approximately 15,000 books, in a large variety of subject categories, as well as a collection of old postcards. The bookstore also has a selection of antique prints from hand-colored flowers and birds to chromolithographs and etchings and engravings. They may be viewed at abgbooks.com. The prints are matted and shrinkwrapped. I am a member of the Massachusetts and Rhode Island Booksellers Association, MARIAB.
