Summary The Oxford Handbook of Science Fiction attempts to descry the historical and cultural contours of SF in the wake of technoculture studies. Rather than treating the genre as an isolated aesthetic formation, it examines SFʹs many lines of cross-pollination with technocultural realities since its inception in the nineteenth century, showing how SFʹs unique history and subcultural identity have been constructed in ongoing dialogue with popular discourses of science and technology. -- Publisher description
