I would like to take this moment to give a shout out to the awesome futuristic book jacket for Margaret Atwood's forthcoming In Other Worlds: SF and the Human Imagination. How cool is this?

The book comes out on October 18 and brings together the three-part speech Atwood made at Emory University in October of 2010 titled "In Other Worlds: SF and the Human Imagination."

Emory describes the series here—the three parts were titled "Flying Rabbits," "Burning Bushes" and "Dire Cartographies" and explored the evolution of Atwood's literary tastes and interests. The author also explained the differences between "science fiction" and "speculative fiction."

Atwood, an avid Tweeter, has already solicited Weird Tales-style illustrations for the book on Twitter.

Sci Fi fans: Are you excited about this book?

Also in BookPage: Read reviews of Atwood's Blind Assassin, Oryx and Crake and The Year of the Flood.
