Update: Sci-Fi Handbook

Just a quick update. I haven’t posted in a while because things in the real world have been hectic. My next big project for this site is to review the Oxford Handbook of Science Fiction. I was fortunate enough to receive a review copy from the publisher. As you can see below, this is quite a hefty tome.

As much as I love science fiction, I’ve always felt I didn’t have a particularly strong grasp on the intellectual history of science fiction. Of course, I’ve read some of the classics, but from the perspective of a casual reader, not as a scholar. I’m looking forward to learning how literary scholars approach the genre.

About Dom

I study constitutional politics in Southeast Asia and I occasionally work as a consultant for rule of law projects. I enjoy science fiction and fantasy stories, both as an escape and as a way to better understand our world. One day, I hope to write a book about politics in genre literature.
