Reviews

">"Complex yet easy-to-read, Science Fiction Culture will appeal to the SF fans who cut their teeth on Azimov's I, Robot to the pre-teens picking up their first copy of a book starring Xena, Warrior Princess. Both such readers will enjoy the author's inside look at this wonderfully strange universe."--ForeWord "A milestone work that brings sf studies into conversation with cultural studies."--Science Fiction Studies
