DESCRIPTION

Science fiction is one of the most vigorous and exciting areas of modern culture - from ground breaking novels of ideas, to blockbusters on the cinema screen. In Science Fiction, Adam Roberts offers a clear and engaging account of the phenomenon, illustrating the critical terminology and following the contours of its ongoing history. You will find that this book:

*provides a concise history of science fiction, and explores the key concepts in SF criticism and theory
*focuses particularly on the impact that postmodernism and technological advances have had on the subject
*examines the interactions between science fiction and science fact - with events such as the moon landings, the Challenger disaster, and the film Apollo 13
*concentrates on SF in book or short-story form as well as SF on screen
*discusses in detail the categories of "the Alien," "Technology," and "the Future," looking at Cyberpunk, New Wave, and Alternative Science Fictions, as well as the mainstream
