Wondrous, detailed map of the history of science fiction

Artist Ward Shelley's  brilliant map of the history of science fiction from 2009 is a kind of  interestingness black hole whose event horizon captured me for several  hours this morning as I pored over the diagram and the arguments it  makes about the history and origins of science fiction. I don't agree  with every conclusion illustrated here, but thinking about them made me  reconsider a lot of cherished beliefs.
