The Illustrated Book of Science Fiction Ideas & Dreams - Vintage
What do writers of science fiction write about? Are their stories merely wild tales to thrill the kids? Or are their stories profound predictions about today and distant tomorrows? This book will answer these questions by showing that science fiction writers do both.
Their fiction is exciting - the most exciting being written. It is thoughtful fiction - the most relevant to our modern world. The author, whose interest has virtually spanned the entire period since the coining of the term 'science fiction', demonstrates by pictures and literary extracts what the authors have been saying in the field. His accompanying text undertakes a Gargantuan task, to make coherent the richness of thought and the variety of ideas and dreams of science fiction.
