Editorial Reviews

Review

"Red Planets is that rare event, an entirely coherent collection where each contributor intervenes to conspire a shared 'problem,' … (it) is an exemplary collection."—Darran Jorgensen, Science Fiction, Film, and Television

Review

“Red Planets is a highly readable and interesting collection of essays. Many of the pieces have completely new things to tell us, and will be of interest even to those who are antagonistic toward politically inspired criticism.” (Neil Easterbrook, associate professor of critical theory, TCU)

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Kevin M. Johnson on December 21, 2012
Format: Paperback
I love science fiction, and I'm also very interested in Marxist theory. So for me this edited volume was fantastic. Although some of the pieces are a bit dry, overall they're incredibly creative attempts to apply different theories to a very diverse cross-section of science fiction film and literature. I probably read the whole thing in two or three sittings.
