Demand My Writing: Joanna Russ, Feminism, Science Fiction

by Jean Cortiel - £20.00  Liverpool University Press (1999)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780853236245 | ISBN 10: 0853236240

In this major study of the work of Joanna Russ, Jeanne Cortiel gives a clear introduction to the major feminist issues relevant to Russís 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 Russís 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 Russís fiction, or in womenís science fiction generally."
