Very good, exactly what I expected.
Cheers!

I love science fiction, and I'm also very interested in Marxist theory. So for me this edited volume was fantastic. Although some of the pieces are a bit dry, overall they're incredibly creative attempts to apply different theories to a very diverse cross-section of science fiction film and literature. I probably read the whole thing in two or three sittings.
