Actually, I just tried the phrases "literary criticism" and "science fiction" together and I see some titles in the results that are of the kind I had in mind. There is a lot that are unrelated though. I suppose I will try other phrases like history or writing or what have you and mix them with the phrase "science fiction," but it sure would be nice to get a list of what I want all at once without the bulk of the list being something else.

How about nonfiction as the category and the words science fiction as the search phrase. Actually, maybe that should be "science fiction" so you only get books with the whole phrase, not either science or fiction or both somewhere.

Here is something that needs to be added to the search engine at Bookshare. Or perhaps there is a way to do this that I don't know about. I wanted to search the collection for nonfiction books about science fiction. If I go to categories as far as I can tell it is only possible to browse one category at a time. If I go to advanced search and check both the nonfiction and science fiction categories then I get results that are in either science fiction or in nonfiction. Is there any way to browse books that are categorized as both nonfiction and as science fiction, but not as one or the other?
