    1. Eric S. Rabkin Is a well-known author, some of his books are a fascination for readers like in the Science Fiction: The Literature Of The Technological Imagination (Great Courses #296) book, this is one of the most wanted Eric S. Rabkin author readers around the world.

    2. This is a course on tape I ripped to mp3 remembered it fondly, but couldn t recall the specifics after almost 20 years I d forgotten a LOT He s also written Science Fiction A Historical Anthology which I d like to check out I just finished listening to another Great Course, How Great Science Fiction Works which I gave Wolfe s 4 star review here Rabkin explores the threads meanings behind the SF story even than Wolfe At times I think he goes too far I don t always agree with his interpretations [...]

    3. It s a great shame this isn t available any, because Eric Rabkin s lectures are tighly crafted, densely packed, and wonderfully insightful I ve revisited them again and again, and I always take away something new.They are as follows Lecture 1 Mary Shelley s Frankenstein and the Emergence of Science FictionLecture 2 Jules Verne and the Popular Passion for ScienceLecture 3 H.G Wells and Science Fiction Parables of Social CriticismLecture 4 Pulp Culture, World War II, and the Ascendancy of American [...]

    4. This lecture series is OK for what it is, but it isn t much I credit Rabkin with knowing that many types of books and stories branched off from sci fi writers that are not longer considered sci fi, that puts him one up on many historians of the genre, but he, like all the rest, does not understand the importance of travelogues in the creation of sci fi and has a fannish esteem for some overrated writers Two and a half stars, but I feel generous today.

    5. Lecturer wasn t as good as most of the Teaching Company lecturers, but this book was still an interesting take on Science Fiction A very good course for someone who reads lots of science fiction
