The Science Fiction Handbook Paperback / softback

Edited by Nick (Brunel University, London, UK) Hubble, Aris Mousoutzanis

Part of the Literature and Culture Handbooks series


As we move through the 21st century, the importance of science fiction to the study of English Literature is becoming increasingly apparent.

The Science Fiction Handbook provides a comprehensive guide to the genre and how to study it for students new to the field.

In particular, it provides detailed entries on major writers in the SF field who might be encountered on university-level English Literature courses, ranging from H.G.

Wells and Philip K. Dick, to Doris Lessing and Geoff Ryman. Other features include an historical timeline, sections on key writers, critics and critical terms, and case studies of both literary and critical works.

In the later sections of the book, the changing nature of the science fiction canon and its growing role in relation to the wider categories of English Literature are discussed in depth introducing the reader to the latest critical thinking on the field.
