ABOUT THE THESIS

THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN CREATOR AND CREATURE IN SCIENCE FICTION

I hope to publish my thesis at a future date, so it will not be appearing here for the moment. Part of it – an earlier version of material now divided between Chapters 5.02 and 5.2 – was published in ManuScript, the graduate journal in English published by Manchester University's Department of English and American Studies. There is a copy in the Bodleian Library, under the catalogue number D219256/03.

In the meantime, the following are included here for information:

At some point I may also post the full bibliography on this site, as a resource for students seeking to research similar questions.

Also published on this site is ‘A Momentary Stay Against Confusion’ – an interview with Dan Simmons, the author of the Hyperion Cantos sequence of novels which I examine in Chapter 5 of my thesis. This originally formed Appendix B to the thesis, but is published here for the first time.
