A full description of some 2,500 science fiction stories from the earliest origins (the Atlantis legend in Plato's Timaeus, c.360-348 B.C.) to the appearance of the genre magazines in 1930. Bleiler draws upon all areas of publication, ranging over stories from Victorian domestic periodicals, dime novels, pulp fiction, British boys' novels, experimental fiction, mainstream fiction, adventure stories, satires--any situation in which science-fiction ideas have served as a focus (and, with great imagination, including hundreds of works not previously identified as science fiction).
