Langer’s Science Fiction and Postcolonialism

By Adam Roberts | December 19, 2011
Categories: Book News

Here's something to take not of (erm, '... of which to take note') if you're interested in SF. The brilliant Jessica Langer's brilliant Science Fiction and Postcolonialism (Palgrave Macmillan, 2011) is now available. Three things you should do.

1. Buy a copy.

2. Check out tomorrow (Tuesday, around 10 AM North American time), who are running an except from the book.

3. Nominate Dr Langer for a best-related Hugo and/or best-related BSFA award, if you have that power.

That is all. (What's that? My 'buy a copy' link goes to a UK site? Oh, right. Here you go).

    Hmm I wish one of my English courses would use this as a text book.

    "Here's something to take not of (erm, '... of which to take note')"

    I like the tone of the first part best, a stern Old Testament sort of admonition. ...

    But the second part is probably more accurate.
