For decades science fiction has excited the imagination with tales of flight to other planets, escape to other dimensions, lost worlds, utopias, mechanical creatures and intelligent aliens. More and more people have become fascinated by its unique mingling of technology with spiritual aspiration; of the serious with the escapist; of the intelligent with the lunatic; and of metal with metaphor. SF has proliferated like no other literature. In 'Trillion Year Spree' Brian Aldiss, Britain's best-known SF author, provides the first comprehensive and up-to-date history of this extraordinary phenomenon. Amusing, intelligent and authoritative, it takes us on a tour through that zone where literature and science engage in an eternal flirtation - the trillion year spree." including index - 511 pages.
