Johnston brings a fresh eye to science fiction criticism in this book, drawing attention to some of the exciting and influential films that resonate within the genre and discussing often forgotten elements such as trailers, posters and adverts. * Lincoln Geraghty, University of Portsmouth, UK * Johnston's book should take its place as the most sophisticated and original introduction to the genre. * Kevin Heffernan, Southern Methodist University, USA * Compiling an introductory work that briefly comprehensively covers a particular film genre - particularly one as richly diverse and complex as science fiction -is no easy tasks. Yet Keith Johnston has been remarkably successful in this endeavour, surveying and unpacking in detail a wide range of issues and films pertinent to the science fiction film scholar, student and general reader. -- Adam Brown, Deakin University * Media International Australia *
