Title: Space and Beyond: The Frontier Theme in Science Fiction Title Record # 103707
Author: Gary Westfahl
Date: 2000-01-30
Type: NONFICTION
Language: English
Synopsis: Amazon: "Although the exploration of space has long preoccupied authors and filmmakers, the development of an actual space program, discoveries about the true nature of space, and critical reconsiderations of America's frontier experiences have challenged and complicated conventional portrayals of humans in space. This volume reexamines the themes of space and the frontier in science fiction in light of recent scientific and literary developments. From this new perspective, we discern previously unnoticed commentaries from older authors, while newer writers either remain within a reassuring but obsolete tradition, venture into unexplored new realities, or abandon space to focus on other frontiers."
