Well, it's not mean to be encyclopedic, quite the contrary. The center 
of the book is a "case of samples" where I provide brief readings of a 
range of books brilliant, good, okay and a few ugly. I do offer a 
hypothesis or organizing device of Waves (with the radical "new wave" of 
the 1960s in the middle of the genre's development to date). And I even 
talk a bit about my own sf history and approach to writing and reading 
the stuff.
