Manned space programs attract the most media attention, and it is not hard to understand why: the danger, the heroism, the sheer adventure we as earthbound observers can imagine when humans are involved. But robotic missions deserve a respectful and detailed history and analysis of their own, and this book provides it. Instead of describing one specific spacecraft or mission, Michel van Pelt offers a "behind the scenes" look at the life of a space probe from its first conceptual design to the analysis of the scientific data returned by the spacecraft.

When Kenneth Johnson’s science fiction miniseries V premiered in 1983, it netted more than 40 percent of the television viewing audience and went on to spawn a sequel, a weekly series, novelizations, comic books and a remake. Yet the 2009 V reboot was cancelled in its second season, despite a robust premiere. Both versions were products of their respective times, but the original was inspired by classic works by the likes of Sinclair Lewis and Leo Tolstoy. Johnson’s predilection for literature and history helped give his telling of V a sense of heart and depth that the contemporary version sorely lacked. Featuring exclusive interviews with cast and crew, this book examines V’s cultural impact and considers the future of the franchise.

Armchair Fiction presents classic sci-fi double novels with original illustrations. The first novel is "World of the Mist" by Laurence Manning. Back in the days of the classic pulp magazine, Wonder Stories, editor Hugo Gernsback often filled his magazine with high-adventure, hard-hitting science stories. Laurence Manning's "World of the Mist" is just such a tale. It is the story of three fellow scientific adventurers who build a rocket ship to test their scientific theories in the wilds of outer space, chasing down meteors and looking for neutronium from dead stars. Their purpose? To use neutronium as a doorway into other dimensions. Our three adventurers, Trench, Cogger, and Wadsley, soon find their space vessel tumbling into a bizarre dimension, the likes of which can only be imagined in one's wildest nightmares. It is an inside out world of pink mist, where nothing makes sense. Shapes and forms seem to form and melt away and are often the opposite--or inside out versions--of their mirror-image objects back on Earth. Unfortunately for our adventurers, survival time in this new world is limited--and they will be hard-pressed to find a way back home before it is too late. The second novel is from one of sci-fi's true masters, Murray Leinster. It all started in Greece on the day after tomorrow. Before the last act raced to a close, Coburn was buried to his ears in assorted adventures, including a revolution and an invasion from outer space! Published in 1953, "The Invaders" was considered a mini-science fiction epic at the time. This taut short novel has a plethora of swashbuckling action, a great many vivid characters, and a weird mystery--all spun for you by one of the master story-tellers of the era, Murray Leinster. Leinster was a professional writer long before he could ever vote. In his career he published well over a thousand stories, dozens of novels, as well as many movie, TV, and radio scripts. He is considered one of the finest science fiction and fantasy authors of the 20th Century.

The study of the conventional dimensions of film, whether of characters, narrative device, material objects, locales, or thematic motifs, provides a means of examining the most fundamental cultural assumptions of American movie makers and movie audiences. Because plot conventions are, in themselves, indexes of cultural beliefs about the physical and social world and how they should function, scholarship that focuses on the birth, evolution, or obsolescence of individual plot conventions helps to reveal the interrelationship between the movement of popular film and changes in American society.

Diverse Marxian intellectual cultures are having important effects on political struggles over the subjects of history and knowledge, international law, television, the state, democratic theories and institutions, bodies, sexuality, masculinity, environmentalism, postmodernism, labor, the meanings of the end of the USSR, children, archaeology, the meanings of Columbus, cartography, the North American economy, welfare, NAFTA, the Gulf War, higher education, and the many other topics discussed by the contributors to this important volume. These essays show readers how Marxism's continuing vitality derives from its profound allegiance to diverse struggles for social justice. At this moment we need progressive imaginaries alternative to the tired and ineffectual ones that have left us with enormous challenges and compelling questions on every aspect of contemporary social relations. Here, well-known thinkers are joined by important new voices in exploring fruitful directions for vision, analysis, and political action. This is without question the best collection of mediations so far on postorthodox Marxian tendencies in contemporary global cultures.
