Summary
"Speculative fiction occupies a special position in contemporary American culture: It shows us our nightmares and contributes to our efforts to avoid them. That contribution, via the cautionary tale, is what has been captured and analyzed in this volume, which focuses on the nightmares and warnings reflected in prose, film, and television"--Provided by publisher
