"...SF accustoms us to looking; it does not, in the end, tell us what we are going to have to see. SF is the window, not the view." John Clute

    SCORES: Reviews 1993-2003   -   by John Clute

    The third book of John Clute's collected reviews and essays. It follows on from Strokes (Serconia Press; 1988) which included pieces from 1966 to 1986 and Look at the Evidence (Serconia Press; 1996) which covered the years 1987 to 1993. It contains 125 pieces assembling work from various sources, but mostly from Interzone, Science Fiction Weekly and New York Review of Science Fiction. Where it has seemed possible to do so without distorting contemporary responses to books, these reviews have been revised, sometimes extensively.
