The essays in this book focus particularly on how early SF engages with such contemporary issues as exploration, the development of science and social planning. Although written by academics, this book is cast in an accessible style, avoiding the use of theoretical jargon.

Charlie’s Sportsmen’s Club is a two-story, skid-row joint housing a long bar, a poker room, and a Chinese restaurant, with hotel rooms rambling across the upper floor. Business depends on a subculture of alcoholics, hustlers, shills, gamblers, and those in need of a cheap bed. Among them is Alexander Kyness, whose friends call him “Kindness”, a man who has chosen the club as the place to live a life of obscurity. In this odd, little world that ticks along to its own beat of greed, deception, and predation, Kindness’s stance of detachment is tested by a number of strange occurrences. More than a few times, unusual events and lingering mysteries ignite his curiosity and beckon him to apply powers of investigation for which he has an apparent gift. Kindness’s self-willed anonymity and aversion to personal entanglement may meet their match in Dolly “Little Doll” Grey, the manager with formidable wit and will who keeps order over the misfits and malcontents in this place where “something interesting always happens”. In narrating the disarming happenings—at times hilarious, while at other times horrifying—at Charlie’s, Kindness shows himself to be a man worth getting to know, especially if you wish life had dealt you a better hand.

As much as any individual, Ray Bradbury brought science fiction's ideas into the mainstream. Yet he transcended the genre in both form and popularity, using its trappings to explore timely social concerns and the kaleidoscope of human experience while in the process becoming one of America's most beloved authors.   David Seed follows Bradbury's long career from the early short story masterpieces through his work in a wide variety of broadcast and film genres to the influential cultural commentary he spread via essays, speeches, and interviews. Mining Bradbury's classics and hard-to-find archival, literary, and cultural materials, Seed analyzes how the author's views on technology, authoritarianism, and censorship affected his art; how his Midwest of dream and dread brought his work to life; and the ways film and television influenced his creative process and visually-oriented prose style. The result is a passionate statement on Bradbury's status as an essential literary writer deserving of a place in the cultural history of his time.
