This book seeks to document a basic proposition, namely that poetry is a major form of expression for writers of science fiction, fantasy, and horror. It is not a history of poetry in these three genres, yet it nevertheless provides the reader with a sense of the roots and current trends in science fiction, fantasy, and horror poetry. Green provides evidence that there are, in fact, opportunities for publishing such genre poetry in both commercial and small press magazines.

Once upon a time all literature was fantasy, set in a mythical past when magic existed, animals talked, and the gods took an active hand in earthly affairs. As the mythical past was displaced in Western estimation by the historical past and novelists became increasingly preoccupied with the present, fantasy was temporarily marginalized until the late 20th century, when it enjoyed a spectacular resurgence in every stratum of the literary marketplace. Stableford provides an invaluable guide to this sequence of events and to the current state of the field. The chronology tracks the evolution of fantasy from the origins of literature to the 21st century. The introduction explains the nature of the impulses creating and shaping fantasy literature, the problems of its definition and the reasons for its changing historical fortunes. The dictionary includes cross-referenced entries on more than 700 authors, ranging across the entire historical spectrum, while more than 200 other entries describe the fantasy subgenres, key images in fantasy literature, technical terms used in fantasy criticism, and the intimately convoluted relationship between literary fantasies, scholarly fantasies, and lifestyle fantasies. The book concludes with an extensive bibliography that ranges from general textbooks and specialized accounts of the history and scholarship of fantasy literature, through bibliographies and accounts of the fantasy literature of different nations, to individual author studies and useful websites.

Organized by types of information sources, the book selectively covers guides to the literature of popular culture, including general and subject encyclopedias; subject dictionaries; handbooks and manuals; biographical compilations; directories, indexes, and abstracts; bibliographies, discographies, and videographies; and supplemental sources (e.g., periodicals, research centers, associations). Each section is arranged by subject: general; popular arts (e.g., music, fine arts); mass media (e.g., radio, computers); folkways/oral tradition; and fads, events, trends, and other social phenomena. Selective rather than comprehensive, the book offers entries with descriptive and sometimes evaluative annotations. Essential as a research tool in academic and public libraries, this guide will also be useful in collection development.

With more than 500 reviews by subject specialists, this volume is the only comprehensive record of the output of new works in science fiction, fantasy, and horror fiction. The volume begins with a survey of the year for fiction in the three areas. Each survey section concludes with a recommended reading list. In addition there is a survey of fantasy literature and film scholarship, a survey of the year in young adult fiction in the three main areas. Following sections devoted to award winners in 1989 and 1990, the volume provides alphabetically arranged reviews for fiction, young adult fiction, and non-fiction. Access to the material is augmented by a comprehensive title index. By concentrating on literature and serious scholarship rather than peripheral materials, and by enlisting the assistance of the leading scholars in the field, Collins and Latham have assembled a work that is invaluable to teachers, students, and librarians seeking guidance in collection building in science fiction, fantasy, and horror fiction and scholarship. This and the preceding two annuals are designed for easy use within school, public, and university libraries and will be of interest to individual collectors/readers in these three areas as well.
