Summary

Evolving from its turn-of-the-century status as a minor subgenre to its present role as a major division of popular fiction, science fiction in the 20th century has come to attract considerable critical attention. It accounts for more than one in four of all fiction titles published and is taught as a subject in most of the nations colleges and universities. Moreover, several scholarly journals regularly publish articles and reviews on science fiction. In addition to DLBs acclaimed biographical coverage of this collection of writers, this volume includes special articles on trends in science fiction, a listing of Hugo and Nebula Award winners, a world chronology of important science fiction works (1818-1979), selected science fiction magazines and anthologies and books for further reading.

91 entries include: Isaac Asimov, Ray Bradbury, Edgar Rice Burroughs, Philip K. Dick, Harlan Ellison , Philip Jose Farmer, Robert Heinlein, Fritz Leiber, Ursula K. Le Guin, Anne McCaffrey, Frederick Pohl, Theodore Sturgeon and Kurt Vonnegut, Jr.

Very handsome indeed...A pleasure to peruse.
