The Essential Science Fiction Television Reader
About the Author
"Telotte's volume makes clear how much science fiction is on television (and how much television has been the subject of science fiction). The contributors to this volume demonstrate how much this matters. These are well-written, accessible, and informative essays that cover the subject in depth, from Captain Video to Star Trek; from The X-Files to Firefly."—Robert Kolker, University of Virginia"
