TOC: ‘Strange Divisions and Alien Territories’ Edited by Keith Brooke
Keith Brooke has posted the table of contents for the new non-fiction book Strange Divisions and Alien Territories: The Sub-Genres of Science Fiction:
Strange Divisions and Alien Territories explores the sub-genres of science fiction from the perspectives of a dozen top SF authors, combining a critical viewpoint with exploration of the challenges and opportunities facing authors working in SF today.
Explore hard science, deep space and aliens; consider alternate history and time travel; look at utopias, dystopias, superpowers and religion; think about who we are and who we might become in the not-too-distant future, and be guided by authors who, between them, have won Hugos, Nebulas and other major science fiction awards many times over.
