The current issue of The Internet Review of Science Fiction had a couple of interesting pieces. Nadar Elhefnawy looks at the sub-sub genre known as "steampunk". Gary Westfahl looks at the career of J.G. Ballard. An interesting spin. I'm hoping that his books become available again (look at what death has done for Philip K. Dick!). And, Mark Cole looks at Andrei Tarkovsky and his science fiction movies (Solaris, Stalker). I wonder if we'll ever see a "proper" version of the novel Solaris, not the translated-from-Polish-to-French-and-then-massively-abridged-when-translated-to-English version that keeps showing up.
