Feedback: What did you think of this show?: 

Guest: Dr. Nader Elhefnawy returned to The Space Show to discuss the role of space throughout literature. As you will hear, space in one form or another has been part of literature since early times although it is not normally considered as a destination or place. In addition, now it's almost exclusively found in science fiction and this genre is waning in interest and popularity. You will want to hear what Dr. Elhefnawy has to say about this throughout this program. We talked about many literary works and authors over the centuries to see how they portrayed or used space and how this has changed over the years. Many of these works are mentioned on the show and I recommend you check them out for further information about the subject. This discussion with Nader provides a fascinating walk through literature and the use of space that you will want to hear and think about. If you have comments or questions for Dr. Elhefnawy, please send them to me at or you can email Nader at
