The Encyclopedia of Science Fiction

“Of all the things you can read on the internet, The Encyclopedia of Science Fiction is one of the only good ones. In perpetual conversation with itself, ever growing and expanding—perhaps threatening, in its accumulated obsessions, to become self-aware—this index of the fantastic documents possible pasts and futures alike.”
—M.H. Rowe. “The Encyclopedia of Science Fiction is the Best Place on the Internet
Self-Referential, Argumentative, and Never Dispassionate.” Lithub.com. August 16, 2018.

M.H. Rowe’s article is a love letter to The Encyclopedia of Science Fiction. The whole thing is fantastic. If you aren’t interested in diving in after reading it, you’re never going to be.

My favorite entry, thus far, is infodumps. Also, I appreciated the reminder to read Ted Chiang on my first dive in.
