I am the first person to admit that my obsession with true crime is a bit extreme and that my love of all things mystery, murder and crime is probably not the best thing for my psyche at time but, hey, it’s my thing. Apparently it is many other people’s “thing” as well seeing as how popular the podcast by the two authors has become and how they published a book about their lives. This isn’t the normal book you’ll see on our blog but as it was one of my most looked forward to and important reads of 2019 here I am reviewing it. Okay? Let’s dive in.

Lingua Cosmica: Science Fiction from Around the World is an academic book. This isn’t a novel or even a generic non-fiction title. This is a book by academics about science fiction writers from countries other than the United States. These authors are giants of the genre, the sort of authors whose works change science fiction in that region.
