Excellent book for the SF reader,
This review is from: The Science Fiction Handbook (Wiley Blackwell Literature Handbooks) (Paperback)
This is an excellent, informative and thoughtful book for anyone interested in the Science Fiction genre . . . but it is also a good book for more casual readers of the genre to dip into and explore. The handbook format of this book allows you to browse individual chapters that take your fancy or you can read it from cover-to-cover. Having now read it from cover-to-cover I am going back and re-reading chapters on areas that I am particularly interested in. Another real pleasure of the book is in finding new books and authors in areas that I have an interest and also the suggested reading and watching lists (for film and television) at the end of each chapter. My "to read" list has now doubled from reading this book!
