130x195 144 страниц. 2012 год. Penguin Books Ltd. In this hilarious, inspiring and provocative series of essays, Kingsley Amis introduces readers to the wonders and value of science fiction writing. From the brilliant ideas but sexless science of Jules Verne to the power of H.G.Wells's terrifying storytelling; from the brilliance of bad science fiction writing to the potency of their important ideas; from a portrait of the average SF reader to Amis's sad prediction that this genre will never make it in film or television, New Maps of Hell is a warm and witty exploration of a world many readers may be yet to discover.
