    [Free E–pub] New Maps of Hell A Survey of Science Fiction Author Kingsley Amis Dated? Yes Is it a brave subject to tackle and defend at the close of the 1950s unlike a certain albeit wonderful author who in 2015 still shuffles behind the spec word absolutely And once again this supposedly awful misogynist I've been reading about flays my expectations by citing two feminist rants in pulp SF magazines as proof of the genre's value OK not because they're feminist exactly but because a reader of westerns wouldn't take to

It has taken me 30 years to get round to taking this out of my to be read plies but it still holds up as pretty much the definitive starting point for anyone wanting to analyse SF as a literary phenomenon There are some places where it is dated For instance a tendency to seek to reuire a clear technology element to separate SF from fantasy or where he welcomes a move away from aliens being stereotypical bad guy BEMS to being often sympathetically portrayed whereas since that time many authors have moved a step beyond that to try and show the alien as being truly alien in outlook However in much of the rest Amis remains spot on For instance SF used as a mechanism for current issues or which simply reflects the culture in which it was created the use of What If as a core story element the tendency of some SF to turn characters into mere cyphers the difficulty and rareness of humour in SF remember Amis would count Pratchett as fantasy not SF and its similarity to other genre formsEven if you disagree with his analysis the wide selection of SF books name checked in this text would make an ideal recommended reading list for any fan of the genre

The first truly critical analysis of science fiction by an author better known for his work outside the science fiction field Amis begins with a brief history of science fiction and its origins in the pulp magazines and brings the reader up to date for the time Along the way he gives synopsis of science fiction stories he approves of and often than not ones he does not approve of He then differentiates the types of science fiction stories one of which is the universal my term science fiction story that deals with a science fiction phenomenon primarily rather than with the people it might affect the danger of such stories as Amis points out is that the synopsis is often better than the actual stories themselves He shows his disapproval of the BEM bug eyed monster story that is the story most non science fiction readers commonly associate with science fiction in which some Jocks In Space do battle with an ugly intergalactic army of cephalopods bent on universal domination Amis argument isn t so much that science fiction can be better than most other types of fiction but that in most cases it can be just as good that just as there is bad literature and good literature there is good science fiction and bad science fiction much of the same argument is being made nowadays about comic books and graphic novels He comes off as a bit of an apologist in that way but he knows his stuff and never appears to be a literary figure slumming in pop culture like just about every literary or cinema figure seems to be doing nowadays He never makes any ualms that science fiction is the best sort of fiction even though it can be the most entertaining and he stresses that is has a long way to go before it can be respected by outside audiences He values the fan base of science fiction which is probably the strongest fan base of anything outside of sports and shows how the fan base s interaction and criticisms of the genre is integral to the flourish and growth of the genre He pays little attention to science fiction novels believing science fiction is better fitted for the short story formOften as I have just been above Amis can dwell too much on summary and synopsis of different stories and histories and not offer enough of his own analysis This book is very dated but it is an excellent primer for those not yet associated with the merits of science fiction
