‘Dangerous Visions and New Worlds’ sounds like an interesting read. It’s a collection of essays that explore various aspects of science fiction from the 1960s and 70s and how the authors and their stories fit into societal change at the time.
From the publisher’s blurb: “‘Dangerous Visions and New Worlds’ contains over twenty chapters written by contemporary authors and critics, and hundreds of full-color cover images, including thirteen thematically organised cover selections. New perspectives on key novels and authors, such as Octavia Butler, Ursula K. Le Guin, Philip K. Dick, Harlan Ellison, John Wyndham, Samuel Delany, J.G. Ballard, John Brunner, Judith Merril, Barry Malzberg, Joanna Russ, and many others are presented alongside excavations of topics, works, and writers who have been largely forgotten or undeservedly ignored.”
