Beginning with "Actions" ("What I do I do because I like to do," Anthony Burgess, A Clockwork Orange) and ending with "Work" ("Even if one has been to the moon, one has still to earn a living," H. G. Wells, The First Men in the Moon ), many well-known and some more esoteric quotations are identified. Among other categories are "Belief," "Death," "Freedom," "Nature," "Reality," "Space," and "Utopia." The "History" and "Religion" sections, in particular, provide large and stimulating collections of quotations. Within categories, quotations are generally arranged chronologically. Titles in quotation marks are short stories, and italicized titles are books and films. An index of authors and an index of titles provide additional access points for readers.
In this well-researched work, Westfahl shows how diverse the genre of science fiction has been and remains. Most public and academic libraries will want to purchase. Susan Awe
