Young Adult Science Fiction

By C. W. Sullivan Iii | Go to book overview

Index
Note: Normally, in an index, I would list the authors and titles dealt with throughout the volume—as I did in the index to Science Fiction for Young Readers; however, all of the articles in this volume are survey articles and deal with hundreds of authors and titles—or more. To list them all would create an enormous index. Therefore, I have decided to limit the index to the major authors but not the titles of the fiction discussed and to also construct entries that focus on the topics each critic examines. CWS.
