After the New Wave: Science Fiction Since 1980 presents ten of Nader Elhefnawy's previously published essays on science fiction in revised and updated editions, along with other material old and new. Dealing with topics ranging from the politics of post-cyberpunk to the Victorian roots of the techno-thriller, from the boom in steampunk to the evolution of the space opera, the book offers a big picture view of the genre's evolution during the last three decades. For anyone interested in knowing where science fiction has been "after the New Wave," and where it is going now, this book is essential reading.
