?Booker and Thomas have produced a valuable work that manages to find a niche in a suddenly crowded market for resources on science fiction.? (CHOICE, October 2009)
"The book is ... rich, [and] diverse ... .If you are interested in science fiction ... you [should] run out and get a copy. Although the focus is on literature, movies and TV shows are also included. I highly recommend it. The book not only taught me and demonstrated its a potential as a reference work, it introduced me to works of science fiction that I had not read and left me wanting to go out and read them." (Exploring Our Matrix Blog, September 2009)
"In short, The Science Fiction Handbook is a fascinating reference work that puts science fiction subgenres into historical perspective while offering more detailed analyses of representative corresponding novels." (SF Signal, July 2009)
?In The Science Fiction Handbook, authors M. Keith Booker and Anne-Marie Thomas finally give the genre its due, and celebrate it, as well as help to distinguish it from other forms such as fantasy or horror.? (SFscope.com, April 2009)"This book represents an extremely useful pedagogical tool, that will find a home in both research libraries and undergraduate classrooms."--Phillip Wegner, University of Florida
