About the Author

Guy Haley is an experienced science-fiction journalist and critic. He was deputy editor of SFX magazine, and edited gaming magazine White Dwarf and SF magazine Death Ray. He is the author of Reality 36, Omega Point and Champion of Mars.


General editor Guy Haley is out to map every last sub-, micro-, and nano-genre. Short essays alongside colourful timelines, stills, and promo images profile over 200 works--not just movies and novels but also TV shows, video games, manga, and more, from Buck Rogers and The Jetsons to Le Guin and Tarkovsky. There's even a chart in the back showing silhouettes of famous spaceships (Tie Fighter, Cylon Raider, Klingon D7 Battle Cruiser, et cetera) in case you spot one and are wondering what it is.-- (12/25/2014)

Made to be flipped and browsed and wallowed in and gifted... an enjoyable time-killer.-- (12/01/2014)
Reference books are a tough market in the days of Google and Wikipedia, but Sci-Fi Chronicles is one worth checking out. A combination timeline and encyclopedia of the genre, it's a terrific compilation of information, lavishly illustrated and surprisingly well written. Covering fiction, film, television and video games, it's the kind of guide that invites a browsing frenzy... The coverage is excellent, ranging from the giant franchises such as Star Trek and Star Wars to entries on leading authors of the golden age.-- (12/07/2014)
This collection goes beyond the final frontier and takes you into the furthest reaches of the imagination. Over 500 pages of detailed information cover an incredible range of science fiction. Books, movies, comics, video games and every possible combination that explores an unknown future are collected together in these pages.... Any lover of science fiction will embrace their inner nerd with a copy of this book.-- (10/17/2014)
More than 200 influential science-fiction titles -- encompassing books, comics, magazines, television, computer games, and film -- are profiled in this chronology of the genre from its origins, in 1818, with Mary Shelley's Frankenstein, to today's popular franchises like the Hunger Games and Halo. Entries range from one to six pages and feature brief narratives on the evolution of a particular title or author, a time line of publication, and a complete photo spread of titles in order of publication. As a reference source, the index provides the best access, but this book will delight science-fiction fans interested in learning more about the development of the genre, making it a great choice for the circulating collection.-- (12/01/2014)
