Jurassic announces... a new history of SF by Andrew Liptak
I'm delighted to say that Jurassic London has acquired the rights to an as-yet-untitled history of science fiction by writer and historian Andrew Liptak.
Andrew is the co-editor of the upcoming War Stories anthology of original fiction, and is an administrator with Norwich University's College of Graduate and Continuing Studies, where he received his Masters in Military History. He is a regular contributor to io9, Armchair General, Lightspeed, Kirkus and many others.
I personally consider his ongoing series on the history of speculative fiction at Kirkus to be required reading: Andrew not only brings genre's rich history to life for modern readers, but does so in a way that demonstrates its contemporary relevance.
Andrew's book, scheduled for early 2015, will be Jurassic's first foray into original non-fiction, and I personally couldn't think of a better way for us to start.
