Praise For…


“Boskovich sets the tone with a conversational style that enwraps solid scholarship…the collection will broaden your horizons and turn you on to wonders bubbling under the mass-market commodified pleasures to which we all too often limit ourselves.”

— The Washington Post

“My only complaint about “Lost Transmissions” is that there isn’t more of it…Buy this book because it is beautiful, but also so they’ll make another.”

— The Houston Chronicle

“This treasure trove of secrets, presented in a generously illustrated hardbound volume, is like a gateway into science fiction’s inner sanctum.”

— Kirkus Reviews

“…a fascinating enrichment of the history of sf and fantasy."

— Booklist

“...a fascinating illustrated history…” 

— TOR.com

“Boskovich is to be commended for her editorial selection and for doing the heavy lifting of writ­ing 44 well-researched essays on a wide variety of thoughtfully curated subjects and figures.”

— Locus Magazine
