Science Fiction or Bust!

Hi everyone! Registration is now open for the first of my two-part online history of science fiction course, Science Fiction, Part 1: From Modern Beginnings to the Golden Age, for The Mythgard Institute. It's a graduate-level course, but you don't have to be seeking a degree from Signum University in order to "sit in" (or audit) just for the love of the subject. Anyone may sign up!

Science Fiction, Part 1 at Mythgard Institute

The class will consist of 24 90-minute online lectures with live Q&A. These lectures will also available to registered students for immediate download as audio and video files. I'll also accept emailed questions in between lectures. There will be a class discussion forum available 24/7.

You can see a full list of the lecture topics, assigned readings, and more here. If you know of anyone who might be interested, I'd be grateful if you'd share the news. Thanks so much!

The second half of the two-part course will be offered in the future and will build upon this one, beginning with the New Wave.

Special thanks to the amazing Elia Fernández for the gorgeous course artwork. You can see the full, uncropped piece here. It's fantastic!

I'm so thrilled that she did this for us! I think it's amazing. I'm so tickled you agree.

Thus far it's not available in a print, I don't think, but Elia's website is here. If she knows there's interest, she might offer it! I hope this helps.

And thanks!
