Different Engines : How Science Drives Fiction and Fiction Drives Science Hardback
Part of the Macmillan Science series
Since its emergence in the seventeenth century, science fiction has been a sustained, coherent and subversive check on the promises and pitfalls of science.
In their turn, invention and discovery have forced fiction writers to confront the nature and limits of reality.
Different Engines traces the way in which we've imagined the future.
