Praise and critiques:
This book was a wonderful read because it gives a behind the scenes look at what going on in today’s speculative fiction. The book is jam packed with interviews and essays by important voices in modern speculative fiction. The interviews provide unique insights into author processes and motivations and will get you interested in their works (I learned of several new authors). And the essays express a wide variety of viewpoints into different aspects of speculative fiction, from games, to films, to the written word.
Highly recommended for fans of contemporary speculative fiction who would like to know more about the authors.
4 of 5, because it is an informative and a fun quick read.
