Écrits sur l’imaginaire 162

par Norbert Spehner

Exclusif au Volet en ligne (Adobe Acrobat, 1 123Ko) de Solaris 162, Printemps 2007

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.
