ESSAYS, JOURNALS, LETTERS & OTHER PROSE WORKS. In this hilarious, inspiring and provocative series of essays, Kingsley Amis introduces every reader to the wonders and value of science fiction writing. From the extraordinary ideas but sexless science of Jules Verne to the power of H. G. Wells' terrifying storytelling; from the brilliance of bad science fiction writing to the potency of their important ideas; from a portrait of the average SF reader to Amis' sad prediction that this genre will never make it in film or television, "New Maps of Hell" is a warm and witty exploration of a world many readers may be yet to discover.
