Robert M. Philmus, Visions and Re-Visions: [Re]constructing Science Fiction. Liverpool: Liverpool UP, 2005. $85.00 cloth. Robert M. Philmus's Visions and Re-Visions: [Re]contructing Science Fiction (2005) is an energetic, vibrant tour de force of science fiction scholarship, and his chosen objects of study constitute a veritable compendium (even though he calls it short) of some of the greatest names in that genre. The list is long: Swift, Zamyatin, Orwell, Wells, Lem, Capek, Stapledon, Lewis, Vonnegut, Borges, Calvino, Le Guin, and Dick. On the strength of this scope alone, Philmus has added immeasurably to the study of science fiction, and the volume will be useful to everyone from upper level undergraduates to scholars who have been working in the field for decades. Indeed, Philmus's new volume has found its well deserved place on Science Fiction Studies's online bibliography of science fiction criticism (, and it is a volume with which any scholar of science fiction ought to be as familiar as they are with, say, Suvin or Freedman or Jameson.
