520 |a "In recent years, there has been a rapid growth in interest by scholars in the US, the UK, and Anglophone Canada in science fiction from other regions. Organizations dedicated to science fiction and fantasy literatures worldwide have sprung up outside the Anglophone axis, several anthologies have appeared that either include or are entirely dedicated to international sf, and awards have been established to promote and reward scholarship and translation in the field. Genre studies journals have produced international-, area-, or nation-themed special issues. Despite all of this interest, scholarship on the topic is still in its infancy. Lingua Cosmica serves to introduce figures worthy of belonging to an international sf canon, filling the gap between survey-type studies and articles focusing on only one work. This volume features eleven essays by leading scholars on international sf authors/filmmakers: Daina Chaviano (Cuba), Jacek Dukaj (Poland), Jean-Claude Dunyach (France), Andreas Eschbach (Germany), Angelica Gorodischer (Argentina), Sakyo Komatsu (Japan), Liu Cixin (China), Laurent McAllister (Canada), Olatunde Osunsanmi (Nigerian-US American), Johanna Sinisalo (Finland), and Arkady and Boris Strugatsky (USSR/Russia). All of these authors possess one thing in common: there is little or no scholarship in English on their work"--  |c Provided by publisher.
