Informative, entertaining and upbeat, this book continues Grazier and Cass's exploration of how technology, science, and scientists are portrayed in Hollywood productions. Both big and small-screen productions are featured and their science content illuminated—first by the authors and subsequently by a range of experts from science and the film world. Starring roles in this volume are played by, among other things, computers (human and mechanical), artificial intelligences, robots, and spacecraft. Interviews with writers, producers, and directors of acclaimed science-themed films stand side by side with the perspectives of scientists, science fiction authors, and science advisors. The result is a stimulating and informative reading experience for the layperson and professional scientist or engineer alike. The book begins with a foreword by Zack Stentz, who co-wrote X-Men: First Class and Thor, and is currently a writer/producer on CW’s The Flash.

This book illuminates the impact, lasting influence, and personalities involved with the creation and development of dark fantasy works of the 20th and 21st century—classics of literature, cinema, and television. This collection of new and reprinted material will focus on recognized trailblazers—Rod Serling, Ray Bradbury, Hugh Hefner, etc.—as well as those whose contributions have been sadly neglected. Featuring profiles, interviews, and essays, this collection will provide insight into not only what is important, but why, and how these works have made such an impact on popular culture.
