Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0816045674, Paperback)

Written by a noted film reviewer and journalist, The Encyclopedia of Science Fiction Movies is a fascinating A-to-Z historical overview of science fiction in the cinema from the earliest experiments in silent film in the 1890s to the most recent blockbusters.

Each of the more than 1,300 entries includes the film's vital statistics-title, year released, director, screenwriter, cast, studio, and running time-along with a summary of the film and a critical analysis of its success or failure as science fiction and as entertainment. Select entries contain additional information, trivia, and anecdotes on the making of the film.

Additional features include:
• More than ninety black-and-white photographs that capture the most exciting moments in sci-fi film history
• A historical overview of science fiction movies at the Oscars-the winners, the losers, and the overlooked
• An appendix citing literary sources for science fiction films
• An interview with Frank Herbert, author of Dune, covering the film adaptation of his landmark novel.
