Science Fiction in India

Yes, there is some, don’t be silly. However, this post is not specifically about fiction, it is about a book of essays. Science Fiction in India is a collection of academic papers that were presented at a conference in Varanasi in 2008. Academic works are often horribly expensive, but this one is available on the Kindle for just $6.99 (potentially plus taxes). So if you are interested in knowing what academics in India are writing about SF, this is a very good way to start. The book’s editor, Arvind Mishra, has more information on his blog.
