More About The Dreams Our Stuff Is Made of by Thomas M. Disch
 
 
 
Overview
From one of science fiction's most acclaimed novelists comes this engrossing journey through the books, movies, and television programs that have shaped our perspective of both the present and the future. In an uncompromising, often irreverent survey of the genre from Edgar Allan Poe to Philip K. Dick to "Star Trek, " Thomas M. Disch analyzes science fiction's impact on technological innovation, fashion, lifestyle, military strategy, the media, and much more.
An illuminating look at the art of science fiction (with a practitioner's insight into craft), as well as a work of pointed literary and cultural criticism, "The Dreams Our Stuff Is Made Of" reveals how this "pulp genre" has captured the popular imagination while transforming the physical and social world in which we live.
