FEBRUARY 15: A collection of essays on the authors of popular science fiction and fantasy books, including the bestselling author Stephen Hawking, author Ursula Le Guin, the American novelist Anne Rice, and the British author Graham Hancock, has been released.
The essay collection is based on research conducted by Professor Steve Novella, the director of the Oxford Centre for the Study of Science Fiction and Fantasy.
The Oxford scholars’ collection contains essays by a selection of authors who have been recognised for their work in popular science-fiction and fantasy, including authors including Arthur C. Clarke, Ursula Brellon, and Ursula K. Le Guins.
The collection, published by Oxford University Press, includes essays by authors such as Arthur C Clarke, Arthur Cott, and James R. Martin, who are all awarded the prestigious James R Martin Award.
In the essay collection, Professor Novellas essayist, Stephen Hawking (pictured) is honoured for his contribution to science fiction.
Hawking is awarded the James R Martins award for his work in science fiction, and is one of the best-selling science fiction authors of all time, and also a great writer of essays.
