Just Out . . . The End of Science Fiction?

I have a new book out.

The description reads as follows:
It seems that for almost as long as science fiction has been a genre fans have been thrashing out the question of whether it is getting tired, stale or even dying.

THE END OF SCIENCE FICTION? brings Nader Elhefnawy's 2008 essay about the debate together with newer writing reconsidering both the original, and the bigger controversy that sparked it-whether science fiction has already seen its best days, why this might be the case, and what the future of this most future-oriented genre may hold in store for us all.
You can preview it here at Amazon, or at Google Books.

Great initiative, it made my day when I saw this. I think the essay is a very useful synthesis, even if you have gone further in your reflexion. I have updated my original review-analysis: https://xenoswarm.wordpress.com/2015/11/09/the-end-of-science-fiction-1-the-end-of-science/ and https://xenoswarm.wordpress.com/2015/11/11/the-end-of-science-fiction-2-the-end-of-technological-progress/, and also added a new section: https://xenoswarm.wordpress.com/2016/12/01/the-end-of-science-fiction-3-the-end-of-utopia/.
