Collaboratively compiled and co-edited by Jean-Francois Leroux (Associate Professor, Department of English, College Universitaire de Saint-Boniface) and Camille La Bossiere (Professor Emeritus, Department of English, University of Ottawa), Worlds Of Wonder: Readings In Canadian Science Fiction And Fantasy Literature is an anthology of sixteen literary criticisms and essays by a wide variety of learned individuals, especially focusing upon the genre of science fiction and fantasy and specifically in the context of Canadian literature and culture. Examining the works of Margaret Atwood, Charles de Lint, Guy Gavriet Kay, and many more, these writings offer a unique perspective upon the context, identity, psychodrama, parallels to the modern day, and more found in widely popular and enduring works of fantastic expression. A welcome addition to science fiction and fantasy literary criticism shelves.
