Two Mammoth encyclopedias for genre fans.

* The Encyclopedia of Science fiction 

Uniquely authoritative, staggeringly comprehensive and enjoyably opinionated, THE ENCYCLOPEDIA OF SCIENCE FICTION was immediately hailed as a landmark in the genre when first published in hardback, winning the Hugo Award, the Locus Award, and a BSFA Special Award.

With over 4,300 entries and more than 1.3 million words of critical insight and biographical and bibliographic data - including a new appendix of updates and revisions for this paperback edition - it is an indispensable reference work not only for every reader who loves, uses and wishes to know more about science fiction, but for every reader of imaginative fiction at the end of this century.

'Its scholarship is immaculate, its enthusiasm profound' THE TIMES

'Invaluable ... no self-respecting library can possibly do without it' Arthur C. Clarke

'Scholarly, accurate, detailed, critical and interesting ... an essential purchase' TLS


* The Encyclopedia of Fantasy

This huge volume is the first comprehensive encyclopedia of the fantasy field, offering an exciting new analysis of this highly diverse and hugely popular sphere of literature, from precursors such as Shakespeare and Dante, through Lewis Carroll, George MacDonald and L. Frank Baum to J.R.R. Tolkien, C.S. Lewis and their modern successors, like Ursula K. Le Guin, Peter S. Beagle, Stephen R. Donaldson and Jostein Gaarder. With over 4,000 entries and over 1 million words, it covers every aspect of fantasy - in literature, films, television, opera, art and comics.
