Description
 
Daniel O’Brien (au); Kim Newman (in). Science fiction (SF) is chiefly an invention of Brit. authors, & Brit. SF has always retained its own unique flavor -- frequently a dark & dangerous vision of the future. From the uneasy technological visions of HG Wells to the bleak post-modern dystopias of JG Ballard, Michael Moorcock & Alan Moore. From the Faustian pact of Mary Shelley’s “Frankenstein” to the meddling scientists of “The Avengers” From the political paranoia of “1984” to the cosmic paranoia of “2001.” This book is based on the U.K. Channel 4 series, & delves into the astounding future as depicted by Britain’s SF authors, artists & filmmakers. Draws on film, TV, novels & graphic novels etc. Also contains an introductory chapter setting the story of British SF in a wider context. Illus.
