Fantasy and Science Fiction Medievalisms: From Isaac Asimov to A Game of Thrones

by Helen Young


"Fantasy and Science Fiction Medievalisms borrows a page from Umberto Eco’s Travels in Hyper Reality (English translation 1986), where the Italian semiotician and cultural critic spoke of the multiple dreams of the Middle Ages that the post-medieval world advances. Young’s introduction speaks of such dreams as she explains the rationale behind her decision to divide the essays in this equally excellent collection into four sections. ... As with her other collection of essays, Young here offers much to our continuing discussion of medievalism in its many forms and iterations, and for that we are deeply in her debt." —Arthuriana
