Modern Masters of Science Fiction

Acquiring Editor: Alison K. Syring
Series Editor: Gary K. Wolfe

Science fiction often anticipates the consequences of scientific discoveries. The immense strides made by science since World War II have been matched step by step by writers who gave equal attention to scientific principles, to human imagination, and to the craft of fiction. The respect for science fiction won by Jules Verne and H. G. Wells was further increased by Isaac Asimov, Arthur C. Clarke, Robert Heinlein, Ursula K. Le Guin, Joanna Russ, and Ray Bradbury.

Modern Masters of Science Fiction is devoted to books that survey the work of individual authors who continue to inspire and advance science fiction. Books are forthcoming on Ursula K. Le Guin, Neal Stephenson, Joanna Russ, Kim Stanley Robinson, Orson Scott Card, Roger Zelazny, and R.A. Lafferty.
