"This book makes a case for the novel idea that science fiction comes out of The Time Machine as a literature of re-visions as well as of visions. 'Re-vision' in the pertinent sense finds its analogue in the succession of hypotheses that the Time Traveller comes up with regarding a future which perpetually changes under his scrutiny. Rather than being another term for 'recursivity, ' then, 're-vision' involves the imaginative reconception of some prior text so as to elicit from it a latent meaningful possibility which the original vision was, so to speak, either not fully conscious of or not conscious of at all. In pursuing this thesis, Visions and Re-visions takes account of a number of the most original and highly esteemed writers associable with science fiction
