This book combines key theories that have become touchstones for work in the field with more recent thinking to showcase how theoretical paradigms central to science fiction such as posthumanism and mediation have become central to critical theory overall in the twenty-first century.

The book is divided into four parts:

  • The Science-Fictionalization of Everyday Life
  • Media, Mediation, Science Fiction
  • Posthumanisms

Each part will not only to outline the central critical trends in the study of science fiction across media but will also to show dialogue and exchange as these concepts are refined.
