FROM HERE TO INFINITY An Exploration of Science Fiction Literature

by | Read by Michael D.C. Drout

Contemporary Culture • 7 hrs. • Audio Program • © 2006

Professor Drout's enthusiasm for science fiction pours out of the speakers during these 14 lectures. As he traces the genre from its origins, it's clear that he not only loves the subject matter, he's loved it his entire life. The result is scholarship with a fan's affection in every plot summary, biographical, and evocation of his reading experience. Some scholars view science fiction's particular qualities with a kind of abashed hesitation. Not Drout. He is as eager to talk about giant sandworms as he is to discuss the themes of personal freedom and intergenerational training that he traces through a number of these works.
