I received my copy of Sense of Wonder: A Century of Science Fiction yesterday. I really do have a sense of wonder as I ponder what it has managed to do, bringing together actual science fiction stories and critical essays on a range of topics and issues from a range of perspectives, in a massive volume that is almost a thousand pages in length, with really small print and really narrow margins in a significantly oversized book. What the editor, Leigh Grossman, has managed to include in a single volume really is impressive.
There are also quotes about the volume on the web site, the best of which comes from sci-fi author Kit Reed:
“…so big that if you dropped it, it would kill your dog.” —Kit Reed
