New Journal of Science Fiction

The Museum of Science Fiction, currently proposed for construction in Washington, D.C., has started publishing the Journal of Science Fiction.  Instead of publishing science fiction stories, this journal focuses on scholarly works analyzing science fiction works and the role of science fiction in society.  The following is the table of contents for the first issue, which is available to download (free!) here:

 

  • Reflecting on Science Fiction, Monica Louzon
  • Biogenetics, The Nation, and Globalization in Paolo Bacigalupi’s Critical Dystopias, Derrick King
  • Gods of War Toke While Riding a Vimana: Hindu Gods in Three Indian Science Fiction Novels, Sami Ahmad Khan
  • Loving the Other in Science Fiction by Women, Karma Waltonen
  • Paul’s Empire: Imperialism and Assemblage Theory in Frank Herbert’s Dune, Amanda M Rudd

Happy Reading!
