“This takes science fiction criticism in a new direction by invoking sophisticated theories of colonialism, race, literature, and genre. Rieder's book will become one the commonly cited authorities in the field.” ---John Huntington, professor of English, University of Illinois at Chicago

“'Science fiction exposes what colonialism imposes.'--Rieder's compelling argument is at the forefront of the revitalized Marxist engagement with the fantastic and makes new a genre we thought we already knew. It is essential reading.”---Mark Bould, University of the West of England
