Science fiction, once perceived as a genre for adolescents and nerds, has gained widespread acceptance in the mainstream. Queen of Blood was released by AIP in 1966, a 'fix-up' of a European film starring John Saxon, memorable for its weirdly atmospheric tone. 1966 saw the release of the engagingly camp spy classic Our Man Flint starring James Coburn and directed by the well respected Daniel Mann.

Pulp Fiction shows what can happen when a talented and ingenious filmmaker reaches his best. ... Another factor in judging books, is how well read is the reader. The following is from the last time I taught the course. And don’t get me started on ‘thoughtfully.’ So many science fiction novels suffer from the same problems: adverbs that proliferate like triffids, characters who are more alive silent than when they speak, and descriptions that deserve the Amis treatment, above. That aura of magic realism excludes the story from the science fiction canon, but it is noteworthy in this sense: In a sense, “.007” is the first work of science-fantasy.

Critics and historians share widely different viewpoints about the origins of Science Fiction. Liars tend to broadcast to me through their body language what they are unless they are pathological enough to convince themselves they are really telling the truth at least while they’re saying it. We will read fiction by African-American, lesbian, and international writers, including Octavia Butler, Eleanor Arnason and Severna Park, and Rokeya Sakhawat Hossain and Angélica Gorodischer.

Selections from representative authors such as Wells, Verne, Orwell, Huxley, Vonnegut, Bradbury, Clarke, Heinlein, Asimov, and Le Guin. Bill Kauffman’s Every Man a King is a brilliant, not very well-known, novel about a man’s descent from up-and-coming political novelist to the relative anonymity of life in his hometown in upstate New York. Basically its the story of a bored and literally impotent millionaire as he stumbles through an energy starved future where the US can no longer afford to light its skycrapers and China is the number 1 economic power (thanks to a strangely familiar form of capitalism, dressed in communist clothes).

Jack Vance's Dying Earth was a comedy of errors; Severian's tale is a tragedy beyond measure. William (Paper) Smith knows his story yet shares little of it. For example, the PADD (Personal Access Display Device) from Star Trek was a precursor of smartphones and tablet computers. While I thoroughly enjoyed the book (and even the sequel The Restaurant at the End of the Universe), I couldn’t seem to muster up the energy or enthusiasm to keep going any further.
