Gabriel McKee’s Evil Twin?

If you haven’t seen it already, Gabriel McKee has written a review, entitled “Wrong on Religion; Wrong on Science Fiction”, for Internet Review of Science Fiction. It is a review of a book by James Herrick that I’ve also reviewed (my review gets mentioned in McKee’s).

Akhenaten's Boardroom Suggestion
The Fundamentalist Interprets Scripture (Sheep and Goats)
The Swahili of Baba Yetu
In the Even(t) of an Emergency

    This is unfortunate. I was thinking of buying this book but given your review and McKee’s review it doesn’t seem worth it.

    Unfortunate? We just saved you some money! :)I am trying to remember whether I read The Extraterrestrial Life Debate:1750-1900. I know I read a comparable book by Steven Dick, as well as one he edited called Many Worlds. It is a subject I’ve touched on before, and hope to actually include in a class I am planning on religion and science fiction, although the question is one that may not remain fictional forever, of course…
