Summary
A tool for collection development, research, reference, and readers' advisory work, updated and reorganized to reflect changes in the science fiction genre over the past decade, and to meet the needs and tastes of today's readers and those who work with them. Experts in the field provide historical and contemporary coverage of the best works in science fiction. Users will find succinct, critical discussions of more than 1,400 SF novels, story collections, and anthologies. In addition, there is a comprehensive survey of the "secondary" literature--resources that discuss fantastic literature, film, and illustration, as well as chapters on teaching SF. A directory of libraries containing significant collections of science fiction is included. Titles appropriate for or appealing to teens are noted, as are award-winning titles and titles of literary merit. Author, title, and theme indexes provide additional points of access.--From publisher description
