"Latin American Science Fiction is an essential and timely book. Brown and Ginway have masterfully collected valuable texts that capture the current sci-fi sensibility and provide compelling insights into a growing and mutating genre in the region. The critical scope and depth make this an indispensable volume that discloses the complexity of Latin American literature and film well beyond and away from the cliched perception that it all boils down to magic realism and sociopolitical costumbrismo." - Mike Wilson, Assistant Professor, Facultad de Letras, Pontificia Universidad Catolica de Chile and author of El pugil, Zombie and Rockabilly
"This study contributes to a better understanding of how Latin American science fiction, although sharing a similar historical context and cultural tradition, is far from homogeneous. Its diversity is highlighted by different theoretical approaches and thematic perspectives of the contributors. A valuable book." - Marcello Simao Branco, co-author of Brazilian Yearbook of Fantastic Literature
