"As the first comprehensive study of Gregory Benford--and an excellent one--Slusser's book fills what has been a large gap in scholarship. This work is an elegant, fascinating, and much needed addition to scholarship on science fiction as a major branch of American Literature."
--Paul K. Alkon, author of Science Fiction Before 1900: Imagination Discovers Technology
"Filling a scandalous scholarly gap for both professional researchers and casual readers of contemporary science fiction, George Slusser's superb single-author study examines Benford's resuscitation of a distinctively American brand of hard sf and its approach to representing the thrill and terror of scientific discovery and technological innovation."--Science Fiction Studies
"Slusser offers rich critical analysis that will interest SF scholars."--Year's Work in English Studies
"An intriguing look at working astrophysicist and prolific author Gregory Benford. . . . careful examinations of Benford's Eaton Conference papers, Galactic Center sagas, and science thrillers, along with an entertaining interview with the author, help shore up Slusser's assertions regarding Benford, one of the more successful science fiction authors to straddle the world of the academy in the sciences and the day-to-day life of a working writer. Recommended."--Choice
