An Informal History of the Hugos

Original Synopsis

"An Informal History of the Hugos has a total of 336 pages which are papers from writer 'Jo Walton'. "A remarkable guided tour through the field—a kind of nonfiction companion to Among Others. It's very good. It's great." —Cory Doctorow, Boing Boing on What Makes This Book So Great Engaged, passionate, and consistently entertaining, An Informal History of the Hugos is a book for the many who enjoyed Jo Walton's previous collection of writing from Tor.com, the Locus Award-winning What Makes This Book So Great The Hugo Awards, named after pioneer science-fiction publisher Hugo Gernsback, and voted on by members of the World Science Fiction Society, have been given out since 1953. They are widely considered the most prestigious awards in science fiction. Between 2010 and 2013, Jo Walton wrote a series of posts for Tor.com, surveying the Hugo finalists and winners from the award's inception up to the year 2000. Her contention was that each year's full set of finalists generally tells a meaningful story about the state of science fiction at that time. Walton's cheerfully opinionated and vastly well-informed posts provoked valuable conversation among the field's historians. Now these posts, lightly revised, have been gathered into this book, along with a small selection of the comments posted by SF luminaries such as Rich Horton, Gardner Dozois, and the late David G. Hartwell. At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied. 2018-08-07 time of publication of the book, [-Macmillan-]"

Starlings

Original Synopsis

"Starlings has a total of 271 pages which are papers from writer 'Jo Walton'. “Exquisitely written feats of imagination, each one leaving an impression long after it’s done.”—Kelley Armstrong, bestselling author of Rituals. In this intimate first collection from award-winning novelist Jo Walton (Among Others, The King’s Peace, Necessity) are captivating glimpses of her subtle myths and wholly reinvented realities. An ancient Eritrean coin uncovers the secrets of lovers and thieves. The magic mirror sees all but can do almost nothing. A search engine logically proceeds down the path of an existential crisis. Three Irish siblings thieve treasures with ingenuity, bad poetry, and the aid of the Queen of Cats. Through eclectic stories, intriguing vignettes, inspired poetry, and more, Walton soars with humans, machines, and more than a hint of magic. 2018-01-23 time of publication of the book, [-Tachyon Publications-]"

Out of Sync & Out of Work

Original Synopsis

"Out of Sync & Out of Work has a total of 214 pages which are papers from writer 'Joel Burges'. Out of Sync & Out of Work explores the representation of obsolescence, particularly of labor, in film and literature during a historical moment in which automation has intensified in capitalist economies. Joel Burges analyzes texts such as The Invention of Hugo Cabret, Wreck-It Ralph, Fantastic Mr. Fox, and Iron Council, and examines their “means” of production. Those means include a range of subjects and narrative techniques, including the “residual means” of including classic film stills in a text, the “obstinate means” of depicting machine breaking, the “dated means” of employing the largely defunct technique of stop-motion animation, and the “obsolete” means of celebrating a labor strike. In every case, the novels and films that Burges scrutinizes call on these means to activate the reader’s/viewer’s awareness of historical time. Out of Sync & Out of Work advances its readers’ grasp of the complexities of historical time in contemporary culture, moving the study of temporality forward in film and media studies, literary studies, critical theory, and cultural critique. 2018-06-27 time of publication of the book, [-Rutgers University Press-]"

Past, Present, and Future

Original Synopsis

"Past, Present, and Future has a total of 374 pages which are papers from writer 'Isaac Asimov'. In Past, Present, and Future, Asimov has culled the best of his essays (some of which appear here for the first time) to form a fascinating journey through the world of astronomy, nuclear power, medicine, physics, history, music, film, politics, and other popular subjects. Our preeminent popularizer of science, Asimov takes on many of today's most discussed issues here - Star Wars, the Chernobyl disaster, genetic engineering, the creationsim/evolution debate - with a flair, verve, and mastery that have won him innumerable readers. But he also includes many essays written in a personal vein, giving us disarmingly humorous accounts of his triple-bypass surgery and his "Hollywood Non-Career." An entertaining look at Asimov's committment to living in New York City (which he calls "Paradise") is afforded in "I Love New York." On a grand tour of the years ahead, in chapters like "Living on the Moon," "2084," "Should We Fear the Computer?" and "The New Learning," we are shown a future that is thrilling, fearsome, and, as the author insists, our present responsibility. Destined to take its place on the shelves of every Asimov fan, Past, Present, and Future is at once rational, argumentative, informal, and charming. 1987 time of publication of the book, [--]"
