"Mathews here leads the reader through a lively examination of Brian Aldiss's literary development. Alidss, the leading British science fiction writer, deserves greater attention in the US, and ALDISS UNBOUND fills a need for readable, up-t0-date criticism, a particularly crucial need in the area of science fiction. A worthwhile, inexpensive addition to any science fiction collection." -- CHOICE
"Mathews should be praised for writing a stimulating study which reveals, above all, how much there really is to Aldiss." -- SCIENCE FICTION STUDIES
