Got this is as a Christmas present. It’s ‘just’ a dictionary so it’s hard to say a lot about it… only that’s it’s pretty good. Seems to have just about every ‘sf’ word you can think of eg needle gun, cyborg, wallscreen… to flick it open at random. Also a lot of the language of science fiction fandom is covered – some of which, especially the older more archaic terms, were new to me. Each term comes with multiple extensive citations from the history of sf and its surrounding literature. Also it’s nice to get some definitive pronunciation guides for terms I’ve only seen in print before. There’s also a couple of short introductory essays and several themed ones eg ‘Earthlings’ ‘Star Trek’ ‘Zines’ scattered through the text giving examples of different words used within a topic.
Can’t say I read it cover to cover (nor do I plan to) but it was an entertaining and informative flick through and it’ll be handy to have on the shelf for future reference and inspiration.
