Description:

Excellent collections of science fiction abound, but very few have been prepared expressly for classroom use. Heather Masri, editor ofScience Fiction: Stories and Contexts, has prepared an anthology that recognizes, and is designed to meet, the needs of students and instructors in an introductory survey course in science fiction.Grouped into major themes, her comprehensive selection of fiction enjoyable and captivating stories, notable for their literary, philosophical, and cultural richness are by classic and emerging writers from the nineteenth to the twenty-first centuries. The stories are uniquely complemented by contextual documents that suggest the scholarly, theoretical, and historical currents that drove the development of the genre, and informative editorial matter that contributes to the book's flexibility for instructors and usefulness for students.
