The Transcendent Adventure: Studies of Religion in Science Fiction/Fantasy

Synopsis

"Reilly's anthology contains 15 essays and two checklists: 4 general essays on the relationships between religion and science fiction; 11 essays on various authors, including Philip Jose Farmer, Frank Herbert, and Doris Lessing; a primary checklist of religious SF and fantasy; and a secondary checklist of religious SF. In general, the essays are nicely handled.... Overall, a good beginning on the topic--and a book that SF collections, and many religious collections, will want. Undergraduate primarily; some graduate use; some general interest." - Choice
