In this week’s New Yorker

June 6, 2012

A very fine double issue on the theme of Science Fiction, starting with the Daniel Clowes cover. Some excellent fiction by Sam Lipsyte, Jennifer Egan, and Junot Diaz, a long fascinating “Personal History” piece by Colson Whitehead about his childhood fixation on B-movies, and several excellent short essays on sci-fi by famous writers (Ray Bradbury, who just died today, Ursula LeGuin, China Mieville, Margaret Atwood, William Gibson, and — my favorite — Karen Russell). Also a good piece about “Doctor Who” and “Community” by television critic Emily Nussbaum.
