Science fiction and fantasy, with their necessarily impossible worlds, are perhaps the ultimate in neomedievalism. Earlier volumes have examined some of the ways in which contemporary popular culture re-imagines the Middle Ages, offering broad overviews, but none considers fantasy, science fiction, or the two together. The focused approach of this collection provides a directed pathway into the myriad medievalisms of modern popular culture. By engaging directly with genre(s), this book acknowledges that medievalist creative texts and practices do not occur in a vacuum, but are shaped by multiple cultural forces and concerns; medievalism is never just about the Middle Ages.

Michael Crichton (1942-2008) was an American author, physician, director, and screenwriter. He is best known for his science fiction, thrillers, and medical fiction. He attended college and medical school at Harvard and published his first novel in 1966. It was not until his 1969 novel,The Adromeda Strain, that he became widely known. The book was adapted into a film in 1971. A number of his other books were adapted into films, including Congo, Jurassic Park, and Eaters of the Dead. His book Micro was published posthumously after being completed by Richard Preston.
Joe Dever was seven years old when he became a fan of the British comic series The Rise and Fall of the Trigan Empire, which appeared in the magazine Look and Learn. He built armies of Airfix Roman soldiers and converted their spears to laser rifles, long before he was introduced to fantasy. Dever was introduced to "science fantasy" by his high school English tutor. He was the first and possibly only British person to compete in the Advanced Dungeons and Dragons Championship of America, which he won in 1982.
The response to the original Lone Wolf book series has been largely positive. Three books of the series won "Game Book of the Year" between 1985 and 1987. The series was also awarded the Gamemaster International "All Time Great" award in 1991. The high quality of Joe Dever's descriptive prose receives especial praise, as well as the fact that the books, if played together, form a cohesive continuing story, with recurring characters (something not often seen in gamebooks).
The 2007 extended version of Flight from the Dark was also well received by critics. It was a semi-finalist for the 34th Origins Awards in the "Publication, fiction" category while its German version won the 2010 RPC Game Award in the "Gamebook" category.
