A Case Study of P. Death rays! Absurd idea peddled by con artists and amateurs and promoted by a sensationalist press? Not quite. Government and military leaders and mainstream scientists endorsed the possibility of such a fantastic weapon in the years before World War II. Borne out of research with electricity and other energy sources, the death ray or "directed energy weapon" was widely reported for nearly five decades.
Claims for its invention appeared as early as , and increased thereafter, until the "death-ray craze" of the s and s. The idea influenced fiction, making its way from newspapers and magazines into novels, short stories, films, theatrical productions and other media.

The transgressive monster: from the melancholic Jew to the blood-sucking vampire -- A cursed embodiment: modernity, medievalism and the melancholic werewolf -- Epilogue. This study explores the antihero of speculative fiction as a paradoxical blend of human and transhuman. These protagonists illustrate the dynamics of individual, technoscientific and societal norms, and blur distinctions between human and machine, biology and technology, right and wrong. Gregory examines the sublime and its implicit theologies as they appear in early American pulp science fiction, the horror writing of H.
Lovecraft, science fiction narratives of evolution and apocalypse, and the work of Philip K. Ironically, science fiction's tussle with Christianity hides the extent to which the sublime, especially in popular culture, serves to distort the classical Christian understanding of God, secularizing that God and rendering God's transcendence finite. But by turning from the sublime to a consideration of the beautiful, Gregory shows that both Christian and science-fictional imaginations may discover a new and surprising conversation.
As the texts illustrate, awareness of and deep concern about perceived vulnerabilities-ends of water, oil, food, capitalism, empires, stable climates, ways of life, nonhuman species, and entire human civilizations-have become central to public discourseover the same period. Fantasy literature is often regarded as formally schematic and predictable.
In this book, Lykke Guanio-Uluru demonstrates that even as popular fantasy texts like The Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter and Twilight share common structures and tropes, they put these tropes to highly diverse ethical uses. While the archetypal symbol of the tree is used to link and structure values in The Lord of the Rings, both Harry Potter and Twilight are organized around the figures of the vampire and the shape-shifter. Simultaneously, while the vampire is tied to evil in Harry Potter, in Twilight the same figure is associated with the 'highest good'.
It is also replete with myth - from the ubiquitous trickster to all sorts of ghosts that have come to haunt First Nations people in a post- colonial, globalized world. Discussing contemporary novels by Angela Carter, Valerie Martin, Toni Morrison, and Janice Galloway; films such as The Exorcist, Repulsion, The Others, and The Orphanage; and Alison Bechdel's groundbreaking autographic work, Fun Home, within a framework of psychoanalysis, phenomenology, and spatial and architectural theories, this book reveals the complicated relationship between the house and the female subject.
BROWN eds. Zombies, vampires and ghosts feature prominently in nearly all forms of entertainment in the 21st century, including popular fiction, film, comics, television and computer games. But these creatures have been vital to the entertainment industry since the best-seller books of a century and half ago. The contributors unearth forgotten monsters and reconsider familiar ones, examining the audience taboos and fears they embody.
Through the transgressive works of prominent writers like Octavia Butler, Nnedi Okorafor, and Nalo Hopkinson, Medicine and Ethics in Black Women's Speculative Fiction explores the fraught history of medicine as it relates to black women and the inconsistent application of medical ethics in today's world. Covering authors from Mercedes Lackey and Brandon Sanderson to Christopher Paolini and Stephenie Meyer, the author finds that it is the nature of tropes and the language used that make a fantasy story, for bad or good.
Past Futures showcases work by more than a dozen artists, including the biomorphic cosmic spaces and hybrid alientotemic figures painted by the Chilean artist Roberto Matta ; the utopian Hydrospatial City envisioned by Argentine Gyula Kosice ; and Incidents of MirrorTravel in the Yucatan, in which Robert Smithson layered tropes of time travel atop Mayan ruins. The artists respond to science fiction in film and literature and the media coverage of the space race; link myths of Europeans' first encounters with the New World to contemporary space exploration; and project futures both idealized and dystopian.
Gothic Science Fiction is a comprehensive account of the rise of a fascinating genre that has grown out of the Gothic. From the dark and mysterious world of mad scientists to the horrors and terrors associated with monsters and aliens, Sian MacArthur takes the reader through a madcap journey to identify those features of the Gothic that have influenced and continue to influence the world of science fiction. From Frankenstein to Doctor Who and from H. G Wells to Stephen King, the book explores several aspects, beginning with Mary Shelley and bringing the subject matter right up to date with the inclusion of works by Justin Cronin and Daniel Wilson.
Gothic Science Fiction gives the crazy and always interesting world of Gothic science fiction detailed attention in an account that is both accessible and engaging. To what extent can the future-oriented narratives of science fiction, emerging alongside modernism during the last years of the nineteenth century, be described as 'modernist'? To what extent did modernism, responding to the scientific and technological breakthroughs of Darwin, Edison and Einstein, draw upon a grammar of ideas and images that we would call 'science fiction'?
This book pursues these questions through a wide-ranging series of examples, drawn from literature, film and the visual arts in Britain, Eastern and Western Europe, and the Americas, from Edward Bulwer-Lytton's The Coming Race to J. Ballard's Crash Individual chapters examine key topics from within this period including scientific romance, utopia, pulp sf, and the New Wave.
With his usual argumentative rigor, he elucidates the distinction between science fiction, a genre in which science remains possible in spite of all the upheavals that may attend the world in which the tale takes place, and fiction outsidescience, the literary concept he fashions in this book, a fiction in which science becomes impossible. This comprehensive bibliography covers writings about vampires and related creatures from the 19th century to the present. What is utopia if not a perfect world, impossible to achieve?
Anahid Nersessian reveals a basic misunderstanding lurking behind that ideal. In Utopia, Limited she enlists William Blake, William Wordsworth, John Keats, and others to redefine utopianism as a positive investment in limitations.
Scientific progress is usually seen as a precondition of modern utopias, but science and utopia are frequently at odds. Utopian Literature and Science traces the interactions of sciences such as astronomy, microscopy, genetics and anthropology with 19th- and 20th-century utopian and dystopian writing and modern science fiction. Ranging from Galileo's observations with the telescope to current ideas of the post-human and the human-animal boundary, the author's examination of key literary texts brings a fresh perspective to the paradoxes of utopian thinking since Plato.
Quand la science explore les croyances. Numerous dimensions of the Gothic are still underexplored. With this in mind, The Gothic and the Everyday aims to draw attention to one facet of the Gothic in particular: the Gothic in relation to lived experience. While the Gothic has been embodied in various cultural trends and behaviours, the broader idea of 'living Gothic', as a term encompassing histories, practices, and legacies, has yet to find a coherent definition and place.
This book offers a clearly written, entertaining and comprehensive source of medical information for both writers and readers of science fiction. Science fiction in print, in movies and on television all too often presents dubious or simply incorrect depictions of human biology and medical issues.
This book explores the real science behind such topics as how our bodies adapt to being in space, the real-life feasibility of common plot elements such as suspended animation and medical nanotechnology, and future prospects for improving health, prolonging our lives, and enhancing our bodies through technology.

Visiting topics such as care work, sexuality, sport, and the military in these works, the book demonstrates that acknowledging a more fully embodied age is not only necessary for the individual subject, but will also enrich our understanding of other social categories, including gender and race.
VINT, Sherryl ed.
Science Fiction and Cultural Theory: A Reader is an essential resource for literature students studying science fiction, science and popular culture, and contemporary theory. Examining the intersection of occult spirituality, text, and gender, this book provides a compelling analysis of the occult revival in literature from the s through the course of the twentieth century. Bestselling novels such as The Da Vinci Code play with magic and the fascination of hidden knowledge, while occult and esoteric subjects have become very visible in literature during the twentieth century.
This study analyses literature by women occultists such as Alice Bailey, Dion Fortune, and Starhawk, and revisits texts with occult motifs by canonical authors such as Sylvia Townsend Warner, Leonora Carrington, and Angela Carter. This material, which has never been analysed in a literary context, covers influential movements such as Theosophy, Spiritualism, Golden Dawn, Wicca, and Goddess spirituality.

The Weight of History:! Avant-propos de Tim Powers. Outlander is much more than a television romance about a World War II nurse and a Jacobite soldier in a fetching kilt. The series—and the massive serial novel on which it is based—has been categorized as a period drama, adventure saga, military history and fantasy epic. Inspired by the Irish legends of Fionn Mac Cumhaill and the prophecies of Brahan Seer, the storyline is filled with mythology and symbolism from around the world, from the Fair Folk and the Loch Ness monster to wendigos, ghosts, zombies and succubae.
