In the Chinks of the World Machine

Feminism and Science Fiction
by Sarah Lefanu

One of my all time favorite books. Naturally enough I adore writers such as Ursula Le Guin, Joanna Russ, Angela Carter, James Tiptree Jr, and Samuel R Delaney. Sarah Lefanu's wonderful collection of thoughts about feminism and science fiction also introduced me to.. or reminded me of.. other wonderful gems such as "The Heat Death of the Universe" by Pamela Zoline.

I can't help it. My hard copy is falling apart and I'm not going to loan it to anyone. I'm going to transcribe the section we talked about at dinner last night instead to share with you all.
