    Mills, 7 Quarry Street, Ellington, CT 06029, (203) 875-6522. Sf can extrapolate from our known world into unknown worlds to give us a unique perspective to examine what it means to be human. The green cross marks those items which are baloney, but are tolerable for the sake of dramatic effect as long as the events of the story do not depend on them. However, our primary focus will be on the novels themselves.

    As to whether or not the pleasures of literature are greater in something like John Stuart Mill’s sense (in which the higher, intellectual pleasures are far superior to the more sensory pleasures), this is less clear. A review by Lucius Shepard of the recent film of The Time Machine or The X-Men (both included in the anthology) is likely to be more substantive -- and amusing -- than most of the hundreds of other reviews of those movies, because Shepard is capable of offering intelligent insights both about film as an art form and about SF tropes and how they are employed.

    In what ways does sf either challenge, or reinscribe conventional gender stereotypes? (4) The ideological implications of narrative. The question of why people read science fiction is intriguing (certainly it has implications for collection development and readers' advisory work).

Although science fiction is a form of fantastic literature, many of the events recounted are within the realm of future possibility, e.g., robots, space travel, interplanetary war, invasions from outer space.

The Night Stalker was the first time TV saw little details such as the police acting like the police might actually do in reacting to an out-of this-world situation, a true meeting of the mundane and the fantastic; It was the tone of a surrounding believable reality that made The Night Stalker such a hit at the time.
