Is it Star Wars or The X-Files? In this detailed and revealing book, author and illustrator Ron Miller asks the same question that science fiction experts and writers have been asking themselves for years: Is science fiction defined by science and technology or by the study of the human mind? In the 80 years since the term was first created, science fiction has exploded with special forms, figures, and themes that have made it a treasured cultural and literary phenomenon.

This is the story of how science fiction began. The History of Science Fiction explores the pioneers as well as the fans of science fiction. In the 19th century, Jules Verne made science fiction popular for the first time with his fantastic stories and wondrous inventions.

In the 1950s, Isaac Asimov created the "Law of Robotics", which has become a standard that every science fiction writer has since followed. Gene Roddenberry's Star Trek changed the way people thought about science fiction by focusing on human stories rather than action and adventure stories. And Stanley Kubrick's film 2001: A Space Odyssey showed that science fiction films could not only be about serious ideas and themes, but also generate a mass audience.

Miller says that over the years the popularity of science fiction has increased dramatically, thanks to the reprintings of classic books such as Dune, 1984, Fahrenheit 451, and The Foundation Trilogy. Younger and younger readers are starting to read science fiction, and many writers have made a specialty of creating science fiction just for them. Filled with abundant information, favorite stories, and exciting illustrations, The History of Science Fiction explains science fiction to those who are beginning to discover it - and to those who already love it.
