Scores: Reviews 1993-2003 by John Clute

£14.00

John Clute began to review science fiction in the early 1960s, and currently contributes Scores, a regular critical column, to the online journal Strange Horizons. Much of this work has been gathered into collections. He has co-edited or written three encyclopedias of fantastika, including The Encyclopedia of Science Fiction - the third edition of which is available free online here.

He has won four Hugos, four Locus Awards, the World Fantasy Award, and others. For his critical work in particular he was given a Readercon Award in 1989, the Pilgrim Award in 1994, the Eaton Grand Master Award in 1995, the ICFA Distinguished Guest Scholar Award in 1999, and the Solstice Award in 2012.

For nearly 40 years John Clute has been reviewing science fiction and fantasy. As Scores demonstrates, his devotion to the task of understanding the central literatures of our era has not slackened. There are jokes in Scores, and curses, and tirades, and apologies, and riffs; but every word of every review, in the end, is about how we understand the stories we tell about the world. Following on from his two previous books of collected reviews (Strokes and Look at the Evidence) this book collects reviews from a wide variety of sources, but mostly from Interzone, the New York Review of Science Fiction, and Science Fiction Weekly. Where it has seemed possible to do so without distorting contemporary responses to books, these reviews have been revised, sometimes extensively.

125 review articles, over 200 books reviewed in more than 214,000 words.
