Editorial Reviews

Review

"The critical vocabulary of the mainstream often give short shrift to the fantastic, and scholars of the fantastic have often had to look elsewhere for their critical terminology.' Such scholars will find Wolfe's work an excellent resource. Definitions for nearly 500 terms have been culled from general literary handbooks and from critical works. Because this vocabulary developed during 150 years of research and debate, an extensive introductory essay on the history and key issues in the criticism of fantasy literature is included. Because the material draws heavily on individual writings, there are frequent references to this bibliography of more than 200 items. An index to primary authors is also included. The definitions include conventional as well as fantastic usage.... This specialized perspective, based on standard literary practice, will ensure an audience for this handbook wherever there are scholars or students of science fiction and fantasy. Undergraduate and graduate collections." -- Choice
