Fascinating concept. I shall keep an eye out for this one. Thanks.

Dick Allen, who wrote a bit of sfnal poetry and saw it published beforehand, was getting in on the ground floor with texts devoted to fields just beginning to get widespread academic attention...at about the same time, he produced the first edition of SCIENCE FICTION: THE FUTURE, which had a similar mix of the giants in the field and "outlander" fellow travelers writing either sf or, in a few instances, fiction or poetry that achieved similar effect, along with reprinting some of the pioneering critical articles and adding some new analysis. That one got a second edition. I suspect I'd like this one about as much.

Hope you can find a copy, Matt and Todd! It wasn't available at my local library, but there's always interlibrary loan.
