Transhuman and Subhuman

Transhuman and Subhuman: Essays on Science Fiction and Awful Truth by John C. Wright

A collection of essays on science fiction and fantasy.

Such topics as the logic failures of Childhood's End. Why animals help Snow White and what this has to do with Tarzan. How to imply settings and characters in prose, and the need to set up character arcs. The importance of carrying through the promises a story makes. And more.
