This review is from: Fifty Key Figures in Science Fiction (Routledge Key Guides) (Paperback)
I bought this book expecting essays about important figures in science fiction. It delivered to a certain extent but some of the "key figures" are decidedly strange choices. Including critics is perverse: I would prefer more about people who write SF and less about people who write about SF. It is probably no coincidence that the book was compiled by critics.

The book consists of 50 essays each exploring the work of a single figure. On the plus side most of the articles are interesting but some I found simply boring.

Overall, I am happy to have bought this book but I feel that it failed to live up to its title.
