This book is a well done research on and analysis of the question of style in science fiction and fantasy. The author shows that most researchers had neglected the question of style in the past due to a general prejudice against the science fiction and fantasy genre and then proceeds to show the importance style has in these stories that need to make so different worlds coherent, consistent and credible.
It is everything I hoped for and more, citing and referring even to more recent novels that haven't been explored by previous scholars.

In-depth and incredibly useful. An automatic five stars from me. It's a must-have for anyone studying sci-fi or fantasy. Also useful for writers!

I bought this this to use for the final project for my Masters Professional Writing final project. Susan Mandala's discussion/analysis really helped inform my own work on examining the differences between general fiction and fantasy fiction - given that all fiction is, in a sense, fantasy. This book helped me tease out what it is about the use of language that enables the reader to successfully enter (and immerse themselves in) fantasy fiction.
