I have received several wonderful reviews for my new book Aliens, Robots & Virtual Reality Idols in the Science Fiction of H. P. Lovecraft, Isaac Asimov and William Gibson. These are from leading scholars, academics & writers who deal with the same deliciously dark themes & topics as I do, and I think, as all of you do as well.
Here is one of the reviews:
“Steadman’s comprehensive guide wrestles with the concept of the ‘alien’, applying cutting edge theoretical and philosophical ideas to the work of some of the greats of Science Fiction to arrive at a set of exciting new discoveries about what the genre says it means to be ‘human’. Reading Aliens, Robots and Virtual Reality Idols guarantees that you will never look at the writing of Lovecraft, Asimov or Gibson in the same way again.” - David Simmons, University of Northampton, Northamptonshire, UK.
Professor Simmons is a great scholar & I am so flattered by these comments.
I hope that each of you will check out the book & see if you are able, in fact, to “look at the writings of Lovecraft, Asimov or Gibson the same way again.”
But most important, I want you to make up your own mind when you read the book (or, indeed, any book).
There is nothing better than an objective, independent evaluation on the part of an intelligent reader- this is the ultimate point of departure.
