Dear Mark

It may interest you to know that an early title within the SHORT CUTS series
published by Wallflower Press (London) and distributed by Columbia
University Press in North America is 'Science Fiction Cinema: From
Outerspace to Cyberspace' by Geoff King & Tanya Krzywinska.

Like all the SHORT CUTS texts, this is an introductory study aimed at
entry-level undergraduates but it does cover the whole history of sci-fi up
to very recent times (it is in three parts and the third part is a full case
study of Star Wars Episode 1: The Phantom Menace.)
