Greg Benford Review from previous edition 'both authoritative and audacious, up-to-date and historically wise, the best yet introduction to a bewildering field'

Daily Telegraph 'travels through ninety years' development from mechanical to fantastical ... first rate'

Independent on Sunday 'ideal ... even contains much to convert the sceptics, with its survey of highlights from Wells to Kipling, via Arthur C. Clarke and J.G. Ballard, to David Brin'

James Gunn '[Tom Shippey's] new anthology not only is useful and important, it illuminates the field with the editor's insights and selections.'
