Full text not available from this repository.


The Guide concentrates on the criticism of science fiction produced in English since around 1960. It summarises the main critical trends and developments of the genre; reviews the attempts to formulate a critical history of science fiction; attempts to connect the major developments in science fiction itself with the rise of certain theoretical paradigms (feminism, postmodernism); discursively introduces key critical texts and the bodies of work of major critics of science fiction; and provides short quotations from major texts (both articles and monographs) to give the reader a direct sense of the style and texture of these major critical works.
