Review

"Contours of The Fantastic is a collection of selected essays from the Eighth International Conference on Fantastic in the Arts, held in Houston, Texas in March 1987. There are some amazing relations/comparisons/relationships drawn here. You will find connections in fiction in ways crossed that you never realized, or could believe. You will find insights on material labeled Fantasy or SF: the OZ creator; Tarzan; films; Christian horror; Gothic; not to mention Lem, Pynchon, Kubin, wand Delany. Amazing, the parallels drawn. Frightening, the insights. You can learn more about interrelationships in fiction in this collection more than anywhere else."-True Review
