The Empire Strikes Out: Kurd Lasswitz, Hans Dominik, and the Development of German Science Fiction

Front Cover
Popular Press, 1984 - Literary Criticism - 335 pages
German science fiction offers a most interesting contribution to the history and criticism of science fiction. William B. Fischer examines two writers, Kurd Lasswitz and Hans Dominik. He concludes that German science fiction is in distinct contrast to the “normative” tradition of modern Anglo-American science fiction and to many other literary traditions as well. His book demonstrates vividly the social relevance and enduring cultural vitality of science fiction.
