Warrick has done a very creditable job on a formidable task: to present a history ofscience fiction's treatment of artificial intelligence, to analyze that portion of science fictionin terms of recurring images, patterns, and meaning as well as in terms of cross-fertilization withactual science and technology, and 'to make a critical judgment of the literary merit of SF by arigorous evaluative study of one if its important subgenres, cybernetic SF.'

Editorial Reviews

"Warrick's ostensible criteria for literary merit do not include such customary ones as character development, narrative, technique, style, and structure; but like the rest of us, she seems rather to enjoy a well-told story." Antioch Review
