About This Item

New York: Ballantine Books, 1960. An excellent critical analysis of science fiction up to the late 1950's, this is based on a series of lectures given by the author at Princeton University. Interiors are tightly bound and lightly tanned. There is light underlining to about 5 pages. Cover shows a light reading crease and minor rubs. A brilliant study into all aspects of this genre. First Edition - First Printing. Vintage Paperback. Good/No Jacket. Illus. by Richard M. Powers - Cover Art. 12mo - over 6¾" - 7¾" tall.


New Maps of Hell is a series of lectures about critical literary analysis of science fiction, including it's history from rough beginnings as short stories in pulp magazines up to the mid-seventies. Includes many synopses, breaks down the "types" of science fiction, and provides a thoughtful introduction to an often scoffed at form of modern literature.
