About the book
Speculative Fiction celebrates the best in online non-fiction - the top book reviews, essays and commentary of the year. The 2013 collection is edited by Ana Grilo and Thea James of The Book Smugglers.
Speculative Fiction 2013 collects over fifty pieces from all corners of speculative fiction fandom – from book criticism to incisive commentary on important issues like sexual harassment at conventions; from feminist themes in summer blockbusters to life-changing video games; from the merits of grittiness to the downfalls of grimdark.

Reviews and Extras
"A review of a book of reviews about books. Absurd? Perhaps. But who cares. This is a book that deserves a loud, hearty recommendation, and here I am to give it to you... Read this book. It is awesome.... I found myself getting excited about books I had never read and even more excited about books I had." - Bookpunks
