Reviews

Winner: Science Fiction and Technoculture Studies Book of the Year Award 2014 University of California, Riverside, USA

"A portrait of centuries' ends, of catastrophic denouements and apocalyptic rebirths, Fin de Siècle Fictions, 1890s-1990s brings to life the millennial preoccupations characteristic of the emergence and consolidation of global capitalism and technoscientific Empire. The range of texts from HG Wells to Octavia Butler, future war fiction to Star Trek, lost world fiction to The X-Files and contexts with which it engages is impressive." Dr Mark Bould, University of the West of England, UK
