Science fiction and fantasy are among the most popular of all literary genres, but until now Australia has had no work that records the depths and significance of its contribution. This unique and comprehensive book will become the standard reference for students, both Australian and international, of the rapidly-growing genre of Australian science fiction and fantasy. Entries cover authors, book and story titles, important fanzines, important sub-genres and works published electronically. It categorises works for adults, young adults and children and includes essays and articles by distinguished Australian scholars and writers in the field.
