Worth reading if you want to know more about science fiction Jan. 22 2012
By R. Stewart - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This book is worth reading for anyone who is interested in the history of science fiction. Stableford has written several fairly lengthy critical biographies of authors whom he considers worthy of attention. The first half of the book covers historically important authors and editors. I was particularly happy to find the essay about Camille Flammarion because little is written about this seminal figure in both science fiction and popular science writing. The second half of the book consists of three essays on three contemporary writers. The choices here seem idiosyncratic. Benford, Sterling, and Watson have made worthwhile contributions to the field, but none of the three can really be considered pivotal or highly influential writers in the field. The book feels as if it started to be a history of science fiction and that the project was largely abandoned, with three concluding essays on writers Stableford just wanted to write about with no overarching strategy. It's an interesting book but not one that feels particularly complete or fulfilling.
