Reflections and Refractions: Essays on Science Fiction, Science and Other Matters by Robert Silverberg

Sci-fi master Robert Silverberg explores science, technology, and society in this collection of opinion and commentary

Robert Silverberg is a classic science fiction writer and observer of the science fiction scene who has written hundreds of commentaries and essays since he began publishing columns in Galileo magazine nearly 20 years ago. His opinions deal not only with science fiction but with current scientific, technological, and social issues; and the impact recent developments in various fields such as genetics, astronomy, biology, and linguistics have on our society. Now he has chosen the liveliest, most thought provoking of his hundreds of commentaries for this collection, which constitutes a vivid, 20-year chronicle of events in both science fiction and the world in general.

Every reader of fantasy literature and science fiction will want to own this collection by one of the genre's masters. In his 40-year career, Silverberg has written dozens of novels and hundreds of short stories. His observations of science and fantasy, and his relationships with virtually all the important writers and editors of our time, make this anthology a collector's item.
