A slim volume - not as comprehensive as I would have liked
on 18 March 2014
This was a useful but somewhat small volume. The book is a small relatively slim volume, and seems to focus mainly on the earlier fiction of the 50s, 60s and 70s although this is considered the golden age with many great sci fi books published. Published in 2006 so nothing later than about 2005.
Not as comprehensive as I would have liked. Not many works by the likes of Arthur C Clarke, Philip K Dick, Poul Anderson, Isaac Asimov mentioned, just one or maybe two classics - although I guess to be fair there is only room for 100.
As a book to inform and guide me in my science fiction reading, and to point me towards different aspects of the genre then it served it's purpose though I would love a very much more comprehensive volume.
