I have been reading Kameron Hurley for years. She's one of my heroes. When I get discouraged, it's essays like these that convince me to go on. Fierce, unapologetic, and relentlessly compassionate, The Geek Feminist Revolution is a bracing tonic for the long journey ahead. Recommended By Mary Jo S., Powells.com
