The ebook contains the full text of the 2003 edition, with typo corrections and additional notes, plus five [now seven – April 2017] further pieces from the 1980-2002 period covered by the book and the expanded, improved 2004 version of Langford's witty introductory essay from Terry Pratchett: Guilty of Literature. Total length of ebook: a little over 139,000 words.

"There is wit here, and great jokes, and a sharp mind. But there's more. David Langford makes us feel welcome in the house of science fiction. By being here, he graces us." – John Clute on the cover of the print edition
