About the Book

The J. Lloyd Eaton Conferences on Science Fiction and Fantasy Literature—long held at the University of California, Riverside—have been a leading influence in the study of science fiction and fantasy for 30 years. The conferences have attracted leading scholars and acclaimed authors whose papers are published in Eaton volumes found in university libraries throughout the world.
This collection brings together 22 of the best papers—most with new afterwords by the authors—presented in chronological order to show how science fiction and fantasy criticism have evolved since 1979.
