MEDIA REVIEWS
Review from previous edition 'both authoritative and audacious, up-to-date and historically wise, the best yet introduction to a bewildering field' * Greg Benford *
'travels through ninety years' development from mechanical to fantastical ... first rate' * Daily Telegraph *
'ideal ... even contains much to convert the sceptics, with its survey of highlights from Wells to Kipling, via Arthur C. Clarke and J.G. Ballard, to David Brin' * Independent on Sunday *
'[Tom Shippey's] new anthology not only is useful and important, it illuminates the field with the editor's insights and selections.' * James Gunn *
