It offers close readings not only of works by English-language authors from H.G. Wells to Ursula Le Guin (along with Jonathan Swift), but also by Evgeny Zamyatin, Karel Capek, J.L. Borges, Italo Calvino, and Stanislaw Lem. Each chapter can stand independent of the rest, but together they are designed to have a revisionary impact on one another. In that respect, the concluding analyses of Le Guin's The Dispossessed and Philip K. Dick's The Man in the High Castle are crucial, as is the discussion of Calvino's 'Priscilla' trilogy that precedes them, inasmuch as all of these works are revealed to be self-consciously revisionary fictions in and of themselves."--Jacket
