More Sample Praise

  • Critical Theory and Science Fiction:

    "[An] important volume . . . [Freedman] writes intriguingly about affinities between science fiction and historical fiction and makes useful observations about parallels between science fiction and utopian fiction . . . His concluding speculations about the future of both critical theory and science fiction are judicious and restrained. A valuable addition to the slim collection of groundbreaking critical works on science fiction. " --Choice

    "Full of sharp insights . . . an ambitious book . . . fans who . . . ponder about sf 's links with wider bodies of thought and conversation will find it extremely useful. "--Foundation: International Review of Science Fiction

  • The Incomplete Projects:

    "The extended introduction to The Incomplete Projects is as lucid an explanation of the economics underlying the Marxist approach to the world in general and to history in particular as I can imagine anyone writing today. It will be especially informative for the young and the curious. This collection should be as exciting for our time as Caudwell's Studies & Further Studies in a Dying Culture were for the 1930s."
