Écrits sur l’imaginaire 170

par Norbert Spehner

Exclusif au Volet en ligne (Adobe Acrobat, 1.02Mo) de Solaris 170, Printemps 2009

Quoi de neuf à propos de la science-fiction, du fantastique et de la fantasy? Cette nouvelle rubrique, qui se veut le pendant « non fiction» de celle que vous trouvez dans le volet papier de Solaris, « Sur les rayons de l’imaginaire», vous propose un choix d’études internationales sur divers aspects de vos genres favoris. La bibliographie est divisée en deux parties: les études littéraires, qui portent donc sur la littérature fantastique et de science-fiction proprement dite, et les essais qui traitent du cinéma ou de la télévision.
