You might find some reading recommendations in this and if nothing else it's quite fascinating.

It's very large so have not embedded it:

Certainly interesting looking, hard to follow though.

Here is their blurb about it: http://www.wardshelley.com/paintings...ceFiction.html

Quote:
"History of Science Fiction" is a graphic chronology that maps the literary genre from its nascent roots in mythology and fantastic stories to the somewhat calcified post-Star Wars space opera epics of today. The movement of years is from left to right, tracing the figure of a tentacled beast, derived from H.G. Wells' War of the Worlds Martians. Science Fiction is seen as the offspring of the collision of the Enlightenment (providing science) and Romanticism, which birthed gothic fiction, source of not only SciFi, but crime novels, horror, westerns, and fantasy (all of which can be seen exiting through wormholes to their own diagrams, elsewhere). Science fiction progressed through a number of distinct periods, which are charted, citing hundreds of the most important works and authors. Film and television are covered as well.

NOTE TO INTERESTED PERSONS:

On March 9, 2011 this image was inadvertently leaked onto the web and sort of went viral.

Because of the amount of interest generated by this drawing among fans of Science Fiction, we have made a large poster-size print available.

If you would like to know more about the print, click the link below. Thanks for your interest.
I wouldn't mind seeing the others in the series (fantasy/horror/crime/etc.)
