Editorial Reviews

Review

In this collection of essays, Gunn (English, U. of Kansas, emeritus) discusses his relationship with science fiction as a writer and critic and offers several approaches to teaching works in the genre. He also discusses the film industry's treatment of science fiction and its impact on the "real world." This revised and expanded edition includes five articles published since the book's first publication in 1992. (Reference and Research Book News, August 2006)

...Gunn writes clearly and directly. He doesn't talk down to a mass audience, and he doesn't lapse into jargony shorthand when he's with a supposedly better-informed group. Moreover, the essays are studded with wry wit....as a model of clear, well-informed writing for general readers, it's worth recommending strongly to your neighborhood library. (The New York Review Of Science Fiction, January 2007)

...a fascinating set of essays...this is a valuable addition to the historical literature on science fiction... (Green Man Review)
