Decoding Gender in Science Fiction

Decoding Gender in Science Fiction Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From "Frankenstein" to futuristic feminist utopias, "Decoding Gender in Science Fiction" examines the ways science fiction writers have incorporated, explored, and revised conventional notions of sexual difference. Attebery traces a fascinating history of men's and women's writing that covertly or overtly investigates conceptions of gender, suggesting new perspectives on the genre. "Brian Attebery is wonderfully fitted by nature, training, and experience to take on the complex subject of this book. Fair-minded and vastly tolerant, knowledgeable in every field of science fiction and fantasy, writing with vitality, clarity, and humor--he has given us a work that will engage and reward both the scholar and the interested lay reader." --Ursula K. Le Guin
