It has taken me 30 years to get round to taking this out of my to be read plies but it still holds up as pretty much the definitive starting point for anyone wanting to analyse SF as a literary phenomenon There are some places where it is dated For instance a tendency to seek to reuire a clear technology element to separate SF from fantasy or where he welcomes a move away from aliens being stereotypical bad guy BEMS to being often sympathetically portrayed whereas since that time many authors have moved a step beyond that to try and show the alien as being truly alien in outlook However in much of the rest Amis remains spot on For instance SF used as a mechanism for current issues or which simply reflects the culture in which it was created the use of What If as a core story element the tendency of some SF to turn characters into mere cyphers the difficulty and rareness of humour in SF remember Amis would count Pratchett as fantasy not SF and its similarity to other genre formsEven if you disagree with his analysis the wide selection of SF books name checked in this text would make an ideal recommended reading list for any fan of the genre

This has been possibly one of the hardest books to categorise that I have read in recent times Let me explainThe book is based around a series of lectures Amis gave in the early 60s He himself a fan of science fiction although openly admitting he is neither an expert not a professional in this field chose to give his views on the subjectNow on first glance you would assume this would the source of major consternation after all someone who does not know the subject putting it under scrutiny This is not the case Many of his opinions are well explained and justified and it is uickly demonstrated that he does know the subject just he is not claiming all knowledge is hisThen there is the rather antiuated and at times extreme views often dismissing certain sub genres and even certain authors as at best not really science fiction authors and at worst those who are simply retelling old stories but simply substituting people and places for exotic sounding versions for example his explanation of Space OperasNow all of this should have got me ranting but no after all this was written in 1961 where science fiction like much of popular fiction was coming out of the pulp era and learning to join the mains stream Yes there were many who looked and for many years after as well down their noses at science fiction relegating it to pubescent youths mainly boys or pipe smoking intellectuals who used to to express ideas they were incapable of expressing in any other way As Amis explains this is not the way just for some reason we try and dismiss it as suchThen there is also the fact that through out the book for all its criticisms it is a positive tone he takes this is a genres that is here to stay and not only that has growth and potential Unlike many other styles and stories who really only try and find new ways of retelling the same story science fiction is limited only by us as new discoveries and ideas come to the front so this genre will be there to explore themSo I will admit if I could have my rating rise and fall like a pendulum I think I would do at one moment wanting to max it out and then another to dismiss it This is a classic bit of science fiction history although at the time I am sure these were explosive wordsOne aspect I did enjoy was the determination that Amis tried to link Science fiction to jazz I will say no but I will give him full marks for his determination and creativity

This was hard to rate On the one hand it is very dated ironically perhaps a 50 year old critiue of SF suffers from some of the same stale dating that 50 year old SF itself suffers from Furtherdespite its overall pro SF agenda it is perhaps just a shade too eager to adopt a semi apologetic tone for treating such generally puerile and stylistically sterile work seriously On the other hand it is probably the first serious book length critiue of SF certainly the first such by someone from outside the genre IIRC the first academic journal devoted to SF studies began only the year before this book came out when there was virtually no audience for such a study as its publication by Ballantine one of the better SF houses in the 1960s complete with a typical Ballantine SF cover perhaps attests As such it is a trail blazing work And it does show insight and critical discrimination albeit not always in ways I uite agree with Amis doesn t seem to see much room in SF for than satire or didacticism To be sure SF can be both satiric and didactic often at the same time but I would have thought that even by 1960 the potential at least for would have been evident to an avid and discrminating reader He does make clear however that the best SF writers are at least comparable to decent non SF writers and he is at some pains to point out that the specifics of the genre ight mean it does not do certain things but that neither ought it try to do them his conclusion that there areperhaps a dozen or so SF authors that could reasonably be viewed as minor writers of some merit is on the face of it perhaps insulting but it is perhaps also not as far from the truth as one might hope Anyway perhaps unsurprisingly given the absence of a critical tradition and of anything like a clearly identifiable audience other than SF fans the book tends towards the general and the summative but Amis writes with verve and dry wit and he generally selects excellent examples to demonstrate his points He also especially early on provides fascinating information about the development of fan communities the sales figures of various SF magazines the relative status of different magazines etc valuable information easily lost in time Anyone interested in the genesis of SF criticism should read this book but any SF fan generally should find this an illuminating time capsule
