In The Mail: Parabolas of Science Fiction

Every so often, the nice people at Wesleyan University Press send me presents. One arrived this morning. It is Parabolas of Science Fiction, a collection of academic essays edited by Brian Attebery and Veronica Hollinger. The title seems a little contrived, but the content looks interesting. According to the blurb:

The fourteen original essays in this collection explore how the field of science fiction has developed as a complex of repetitions, influences, arguments, and broad conversations.

The contributors include Gary K. Wolfe, L. Timmel Duchamp, Graham Sleight and Rachel Haywood Ferreira. I’m looking forward to reading it. Also, thank you Wesleyan, I note that for an academic title it is very reasonably priced in ebook and paperback forms, so you lot can check it out too.

    Looks interesting. Do you know if it’s available as a non-Kindle ebook?

      Not that I can see. Hopefully someone at Wesleyan will see your comment and reply. If not I shall inquire.

    • Hi Tero,

      The ebook will be available through different channels, not just Amazon for the Kindle. It files are currently on their various electronic paths to various ebook distributors. The files go out to over 100 different ebook retailers, as well as to libraries. It is a bit slow sometimes, and might take a few more weeks to be available.

      Thanks for asking!
