    One thought on “The Science in Science Fiction”

    1. A very interesting look at Science Fiction stories from the aspect of the science used in them. Nicely laid out chapters that use very good explanations and examples of the science discussed. Recommended

    2. This book was in my high school library. I checked it out more times than any other book there put together.

    3. This is such an awesome read. I wish he updated Peter Nicholls would put together a new one of these. Truly a fascinating read, and organized to be picked up and put down easily.

    4. Articles are bit brief and general, nothing surprising in any of them. Fairly standard stuff. The book might work as a reference work for science fiction ideas.
