Another new academic work: Imagining Mars: A Literary History by Robert Crossley
More great news! The Wall Street Journal reminds us why the Red Planet has been the dominant orb, after Earth itself, in the science-fiction imagination by promoting Imagining Mars: A Literary History (Jan 2011), a new hardcover academic work by Robert Crossley, Emeritus Professor of English at the University of Massachusetts–Boston, and the latest volume in the Early Classics of Science Fiction series published by Wesleyan University Press. Endorsed by Steven J. Dick, former NASA chief historian, here is the promotional piece for Imagining Mars:
The table of contents looks interesting and a short review in Publishers Weekly concludes: “Scholarly but accessible, with a generous number of illustrations and photographs, Imagining Mars is a fun and interesting read for sci-fi fans and armchair astronomers.”
