This encyclopedia was published in 1995 - so it's twenty years out of date. But still, for being a reference for works prior to 1996 it's great. At 1,385 pages this book is huge. Sure you can now look all this up on the web, but it's nice to have a copy on hand to look stuff up when you need to. I'm happy with my purchase.
the copy didn't appear just like new - it looked more like brand new
on 27 July 2016 - Published on Amazon.com
I always wanted to own a copy of The Encyclopedia of Science Fiction but didn't buy one until a couple of weeks ago. I bought a second-hand copy described as 'Like new'. When I opened the box, the copy didn't appear just like new - it looked more like brand new. So naturally I was very pleased with it. The content of the book needs little introduction. Though the book is now somewhat outdated because it was published two decades ago, I still enjoy reading the information from the 90s. If you are a science fiction fan, you will not be disappointed with this book.
Essential Encyclopedia About Speculative Fiction
on 10 May 2016 - Published on Amazon.com
Still the best one volume overview for students or enthusiasts of science fiction. It's a can't miss volume if you're interested in the genre.
Excellent reference for someone with an historical interest in science fiction.
on 20 December 2012 - Published on Amazon.com
This excellent reference is very difficult to find - the version reviewed here is the 1995 copyright - but it is an outstanding source for science fiction enthusiasts. At 1386 pages, it is easily the most inclusive reference for readers and movie-goers of all ages and interests. The span of topics is impressive and one is tempted to remark that every significant theme in science fiction lore of the last 100 years (or so) can be found here. This is probably an overstatment, but if a topic is not included in this compendium, it is certainly a rare subject. That being said, this reference focuses largely on literary and motion picture history and background. Those exploring the "imaginative technology" of science fiction may be disappointed.
I Couldn't have asked for better

The book was well protected and arrived on time. I have the first version of this encyclopedia and I needed the update (roughly 20 years worth of science fiction to cover).
