Following on my recent blog post about science fiction, classical reception and fannishness, I’m glad to announce that the final piece has now been published!
You can read In A Galaxy Far, Far Away: On Classical Reception and Science Fiction over at Strange Horizons.
Ultimately, I’m very pleased indeed with how the piece turned out. As I explained in my preliminary blog post, this is quite a big shift away from some of my usual stomping ground, and I’ve really appreciated the opportunity to get familiar with the territory. That’s because I have another project on tap that looks like it will make really good use of the sort of material that I got to use and get familiar with for this piece – but that’s another story for another time. Until then, enjoy this overview of the state of the field, and do let me know what you think!
