Pressestimmen

"I had an embarrassingly good time poring through Brave New Words. It's more than a dictionary, it's a secret history of science fiction -- and of the last 50 years of popular culture."--John Scalzi, author of Old Man's War
"This is a fine work, helpful for anyone who has ever been asked what the hell we've been talking about all this time. Grade: A"--SciFi Magazine


"Bottom Line: This admirable and unique source demonstrates on nearly every page the surprising extent to which the language of science fiction has entered everyday English-terms and concepts such as beam me up, cyberspace, downtime, gateway, morph, newspeak, robot, and space cadet. Highly
recommended for public and academic libraries with an interest in science fiction."--Library Journal

Kurzbeschreibung

Winner of a 2008 Hugo Award, this new paperback takes readers on spectacular tour of the language created by science fiction. From "Stargate" to "Force Field," this dictionary opens a fascinating window into an entire genre, through the words invented by science fiction's most talented writers, critics, and fans. Each entry includes numerous citations of the word's usage, from the earliest known appearance forward. Drawn not only from science fiction novels and stories, citations also come from fanzines, screenplays, comics, songs, and the Internet.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Fabulous book, a must-have reference title for sci-fi writers 8. September 2008
Von J. Roberts - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
This review is going to be short simply because nothing I can say could be as helpful in your decision-making as Gene Wolfe's very excellent introduction. I'll give you a minute to read it.

. . .

See? Wasn't kidding was I? Very well done.

Anyway, if you want the opinion of this unpublished non-science ficiton writer, I think that if you're interested in science fiction and if you're interested in language, then you ought to own this book.

This isn't like most of the Oxford Dictionaries I've seen. The definitions are scanty and the etymologies are long - but consider the subject matter. Most of the words in here are either rather common in modern parlance ("android," "spaceship") or highly idiosyncratic ("grok"), neither of which lend themselves well to wordy definitions. And, moreso than in most other subjects, the definitions of the words shift and change over time.

Also entertaining are the short essays between letters. They're entertaining and well-written, but also highly informative and on-point.

This isn't a book to sit down and read cover to cover for most people, but it's an excellent book to scan through and a helpful reference for those sci-fi words you've always wanted to know a bit more about. And, for someone like me who only participates in sci-fi fandom at the very edges, it's a handy glossary for a lot of industry terms as well.
5.0 von 5 Sternen I recommend to any science fiction novelist 22. Mai 2016

Having written a couple of novels, I find this book very handy when trying to find terms I want to use in my story. I recommend to any science fiction novelist.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Interesting, but could be a LOT better 11. September 2009
Von R. Matthew Sailors - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
I have to echo a previous reviewer's comments about typographical and grammatical errors and the maddening lists of synonyms--just add them as additional "related words" in the main entry.

I'm also disappointed in the depth and breadth of coverage. While many of the individual entries are fine, many only cite examples from the first decade of a word or concept's use rather than including a broad spectrum of examples include some which might be recognizable to non-SF fans / family who want to understand what in the heck their SF-fan relative is raving about. Is it really necessary to have 8 examples of a concept's use from publications in 1920s and 1930s, when it has been better used in stories in the past decade?
The breadth of coverage is also lacking. Many important SF terms (yes, some author or story specific, but often still very important culturally) are omitted, even as specific examples within a more general entry.

I was expecting something more along the breadth of Nicholls and Clute's New Encyclopedia of Science Fiction and this is not it. It is still an interesting reference, but not at the list price.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A Good Effort at a tough task 11. Januar 2013
Von Jack L. Courtney - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
I can't imagine putting in the kind of time and effort needed to produce a dictionary like this. The author knew what he was doing and the product is useful to SF entusiasts.

4.0 von 5 Sternen No Doctor Who? 3. Oktober 2011
Von Zhuxx - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
This dictionary is amazing, and I marvel at the amount of work that went into making it.

However, I bought this dictionary in the hopes that who was in it, or "the Doctor" or something of that sort. I'm working on a definition paper and "the Doctor" is my topic, and I need a specialized dictionary in which I got my definition. I found no such mention of Doctor Who, though I have yet to read the entire thing. Is Doctor Who mentioned in this at all? Please, help would be appreciated.
