Demand My Writing: Joanna Russ, Feminism, Science Fiction

Portada
Liverpool University Press, 1999 - 254 páginas
In this major study of the work of Joanna Russ, Jeanne Cortiel gives a clear introduction to the major feminist issues relevant to Russ's work and assesses its development. The book will be especially valuable for students of SF and feminist SF, especially in its concern with the function of woman-based intertextuality. Although Cortiel deals principally with Russ's novels, she also examines her short stories, and the focus on critically neglected texts is a particularly valuable feature of the study.

"I recommend this book to any reader interested in Russ's fiction, or in women's science fiction generally."—Science Fiction Studies
