Synopsis

The subject matter of this collection is varied, but displays Jones' stance as a practising SF writer and a feminist; the writing is characterised by both an incisive engagement with the texts and a refusal to dress that engagement in jargon. This very readable book provides insight into the work of one of our most interesting writers and presents strong - sometimes even subversive - views of a range of modern SF and fantasy.
