Sport and Monstrosity in Science Fiction, Hardcover by Thiess, Derek J. ISBN 1786942224, ISBN-13 9781786942227, Brand New, Free P&P in the UK Mingling politics, extrapolative literary genre, and sport offers important insight to all three fields, contends Thiess, and demonstrates by reading sport in the context of science fiction. He begins with life, death, and Cartesian dualism, covering baseball, not biology: sex and gender; broken teeth: race and bodies; and graying the playing field. Then he turns to the figure of the athlete, and the individual talent; sport, institution, and the Devil; and beasts in the stands: fandom, sport, and science fiction.
