Clearly written on contract Feb. 28 2009
By Michael A. Duvernois - Published on
Format: Paperback
This is an amateurish attempt at a history of science fiction for school children. The author seems to have little to no knowledge or interest in science fiction. Factual errors abound. And there is virtually no recent material in this book. It's published in 2000, but most everything is pre-1990.

I suspect someone submitted a low-ball bid to write this book. That's what it looks like.
when was this book written? Jan. 4 2009
By W Boudville - Published on
Format: Paperback
There is a weird section of the book where current up and coming science fiction authors are described. The intent of the section is surely good. But it talks about people like Frank Herbert, the author of the Dune series. Say what?! Herbert wrote Dune in the mid 60s, and it immediately became famous. Miller's book was published in 2000. Yet not only was Herbert famous by 2000, he was also dead by then!

So when did Miller actually write his musings?
