Great Science-Fiction & Fantasy Works

Science-fiction & fantasy literature: a critical list with discussions.

Welcome to the Great Science-Fiction & Fantasy Works web site!

You have apparently come to this page from a link on a search engine or another site. If this is your first visit here, I much recommend that you take a few minutes to look over the introductory material accessible via the red “Introductory” navigation block just below the pictures. An understanding of the purposes and principles of organization of this site will, I hope and believe, much augment your experience here, for this page and in general. You can simply click this link to get at the site front page, which, unsurprisingly, is the best place to start. Thank you for visiting.
Search, or just roll your cursor over the colored boxes farther below.

Samantha Hunt

Quick page jumps:

Standard Disclaimer:

This is a brief discussion of Samantha Hunt and, of course, of some speculative-fiction books by Hunt.

This discussion and list does not necessarily include every book by Hunt: it includes only those books that I both know and like. Just as with the author list itself, omission of a particular item may mean I didn’t think highly enough of the omitted item, or it may simply mean that I have not yet sufficient familiarity with it. (In a very few cases, I have listed some books merely on the strength of my opinion of the author: all such books are clearly marked below, as throughout these lists, with a hash mark (#) before the title so you know what’s what.)

I don’t pretend that this discussion is a deep analysis. My intent is no more than to give you a rough idea of what kinds of tales Hunt tells, how those tales are usually told, and what makes them and Hunt worthy; in sum, to help you rank Samantha Hunt (and the works by Hunt listed here) on your personal literary to do list.

A Few Words About Samantha Hunt

Regrettably, I have not yet had an opportunity to write an essay on this author, but the Other Resources section below will lead you to some information about the Notable Books listed farther down this page.

Other Samantha Hunt Resources

Samantha Hunt Resources on the Web

First, there is her own web site (the navigation of which is so cute it’s hard to follow, but just click on whatever looks clickable).

Moreover, on that site, Ms. Hunt has done a pretty good job of rounding up the online commentaries on The Invention of Everything Else (33 of them as I write this), plus a half dozen others of her first book, and I see no need to reinvent the wheel. Unfortunately, though, not a few of Ms. Hunt’s links have shifted since she posted them, so often you will need to search the target site.

The only general critical review (that is, a review not of one particular book) I could find is the Hunt, Samantha entry at the always helpful Encyclopedia of Science Fiction. But there are lots of those one-off book reviews: as usual, Google Is Your Friend for those.

Besides one-off book reviews, there are also numerous interviews on line; here are just a few:

There is also a fascinating essay by Hunt, Nikola Tesla, An Alien Intelligence, which served as the introduction to an edition of My Inventions by Tesla himself. It is well worth reading.
