5.0 out of 5 stars Readable, comprehensive, and inclusive 23 Aug 2013
By Raissa Rivera Falgui - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
There is a broad range of well-written and highly readable essays here on speculative fiction, including several by women, one a Filipina. I think it succeeds at being inclusive and so though it isn't a book of scholarly criticism, it makes a worthwhile contribution to studies of this literary genre.
