MEDIA REVIEWS

`Well designed for reference, for serendipitous browsing, or for systematic study, The Routledge Companion to Science Fiction will be welcomed by novice and veteran scholars alike.'- Carl Freedman, Louisiana State University, USA

'This title should serve as a base for future updates that will continue to enrich knowledge and appreciation of science fiction...Highly recommended.' - Choice

'The Routledge Companion to Science Fiction will, one day soon, become an indispensable guide to sf's history, breadth, and depth for the genre's scholars, authors, and aficionados... The Routledge Companion to Science Fiction to a crucial addition to sf scholarship. The book most directly appeals to the genre's academic surveyors, but non-scholars will find it fascinating, intelligent, and debatable information in its pages. This publication's comprehensive, incisive, and useful entries make me wish the Companion a long and prosperous (shelf) life.' - Journal of the Fantastic in the Arts
