GOVE, Philip Babcock
(1902-1972)
   US academic, author of The Imaginary Voyage in Prose Fiction: A History of its Criticism and a Guide for its Study, with an Annotated Check List of 215 Imaginary Voyages from 1700 to 1800 (1941; reissued by ARNO PRESS 1975). Though in no sense a book about sf per se, it is one of the most important and reliable tools for the researcher into 18th-century FANTASTIC VOYAGES, about which few books have been written.
