  • A concise history of science fiction and the ways in which the genre has been
    used and defined
  • Explanations of key concepts in SF criticism and theory through chapters such as Gender, Race, Technology and Metaphor
  • Examines the interactions between Science Fiction and Science Fact
  • Anchors each chapter with a case study drawn from short story, book or film, from Frank Herbert's Dune to Star Wars, from The Left Hand of Darkness to Neuromancer.
