Anatomy of Wonder: Science Fiction.
Barron, Neil
This volume provides annotations, which include publishing and price information, as well as syntheses of content, of science fiction books and other works which concern science fiction or its instruction. Part one, "The Literature," contains detailed introductory comments and bibliographic citations relevant to each of the following periods: the early years of science fiction (until 1870), the period of scientific romance (1870-1926), the Gernsback era (1926-1937), and the modern period (1938-1975). A section devoted to juvenile science fiction is included. Part two, "Research Aids," provides listings of historical, critical, and biographical works; bibliographies, indexes, and teaching aids; magazine and book review indexes; periodicals; literary awards; and library collections of science fiction and fantasy. A core-collection checklist is also given, and a directory of publishers and author and title indexes complete the volume. (KS)
