HASH(0x8ced77e0) out of 5 stars Tons of fun and inspiration! 24 May 2015
By Guy P. Harrison - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a wonderful collection of memorable and thought-provoking quotes from science fiction books and films. I have sought out several books to read based on a brief quote I read in this book. Westfahl did a magnificent job putting this collection together.

HASH(0x8ba0d06c) out of 5 stars Yawn.... 22 April 2010
By Michael Higgins - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Some good quotes, some from sources I was not able to find even on Google. No real theme or thread to the flow. And the introductions will put you to sleep. Index was well done, but if the content is lacking no amount of good indexing will help it.
