The Value of Science Fiction

Nine legendary authors - Poul Anderson, Isaac Asimov, John Brunner, Gordon Dickson, Harlan Ellison, and James Gunn, Damon Knight, Frederik Pohl, and Jack Williamson - present their ideas on why SF is important to readers and what it teaches them. These excerpts are from a series of interviews and lectures done from 1968—1978 by Professor James Gunn at the University of Kansas. Full interviews are on the Literature of SF DVD. This video is brought to you by AboutSF and the Center for the Study of Science Fiction at the University of Kansas.
