My Summer Science Fiction Class at UC Davis

I’ll be teaching Science Fiction during Summer Session II at the University of California, Davis.  I’m excited by the opportunity.

My course’s full info is available on the UC Davis English Department’s site.  The reading list (which includes the first Hugo Award-winning novel and the 2012 winner)  and  is below:

  • The Wesleyan Anthology of Science Fiction, Evans, et. al.
  • The Demolished Man, Alfred Bester
  • The Female Man, Joanna Russ
  • The Diamond Age, Neal Stephenson
  • Among Others, Jo Walton

I’ll probably add a few readings to rectify the absence of “Mellonta Tauta,” “The Cold Equations,” and “Heirs of the Perisphere” from the otherwise excellent Wesleyan anthology.

As always, I’m glad to field questions via comments or by e-mail.  I can explain/justify all choices, just not in the length of a single blog post.
