Picks and Pans Review: Science Fiction: the Illustrated Encyclopedia
by John Clute
Flying cities, space elevators, Martian princesses, global apocalypse, alternate Earths—these are a few of a sci-fi fan's favorite things. Such images (which adorn the covers of pulp magazines, comic books and vintage paperbacks) are gloriously reproduced here. Complementing the evocative graphics are erudite essays on more than 100 key authors, ranging from Mary Shelley and Jules Verne to Robert A. Heinlein and William Gibson, and superb summaries of movies and TV shows. An indispensable reference for buffs and browsers. (D.K. Publishing $39.95)
