eBook publication of the book which was awarded the prestigious MLA Emily Toth Award (1990). 'In re-issuing this book now I'm not attempting to bring it up to date. To do so would necessitate writing a whole other book. Instead I want new readers to discover the work of all these pioneer women writers, and in particular the four whose work I look at in some detail in the second half of the book: Suzy McKee Charnas, Ursula Le Guin, Joanna Russ and James Tiptree Jr. Four writers who were proud to call themselves writers of science fiction, four writers whose work is alive with the fusion of a feminist political worldview with the myriad possibilities of science fictional otherworlds...' The title comes from a line of dialogue in 'The Women Men Don't See', a short story by the late great James Tiptree Jr (aka Alice Sheldon and Raccoona Sheldon): 'What women do is survive. We live by ones and twos in the chinks of your world-machine.' So you thought science fiction was a boys' own zone? Think again! In this classic work of science fiction criticism - winner, when it was first published, of a prestigious MLA award - Sarah LeFanu looks at the work of a whole range of science fiction writers and explores the fusion of a feminist political worldview with the myriad possibilities of science fictional otherworlds. With individual chapters on the work of Suzy McKee Charnas, Ursula Le Guin, Joanna Russ, and Tiptree herself, and a new preface from the author.
