Barry N. Malzberg
Genre: Nonfiction
Word Count: 58,000
Price: $6.99

Formats: Microsoft ReaderMobipocket ReaderRocket eBook

Publisher: ElectricStory.com
In The Engines of the Night, Malzberg reviews his own ambivalent relationship with science fiction up to 1980 and gauges its past and future potentials. Would science fiction have been better off without Hugo Gernsback and the pulp-literature stigma with which he cursed it? What are the seminal works of science fiction? Can science fiction kill you? His answers are brilliant, unequivocal, and surprising. Updated with a 2001 introduction, this Locus Award-winning collection remains an essential and enduring history and critique of a fascinating and problematic genre. More

Genre: Nonfiction
Word Count: 280,000
Price: $9.99


Publisher: ElectricStory.com       Publication Date: Jan 2000
In 1990, Alexei and Cory Panshin's massive history of science fiction, The World Beyond the Hill, won the Hugo award in competition with books by Arthur C. Clarke, Ursula LeGuin, and Harlan Ellison. Isaac Asimov called it, "The best, the BEST, history of science fiction I have ever read." Exploring the genre from its roots in the Romantic Period to the late 20th century, the Panshins make the case for science fiction as modern mythology. The ElectricStory edition includes hyperlinked contents, index, and notes sections for easy navigation. More
