Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: What happens when two U.S. Naval Astronauts land on the planet Harlech, where there is no government, no law -- indeed, no concept of sin! Public nudity is a way of life and the paternalism of children is of little interest to their mothers. This wry, amusing, and suspenseful satire is truly John Boyd at his best. Praise for John Boyd's The Last Starship from Earth "This is the best anti-Utopia, the strongest satire on trends in our present culture, I have seen since '1984' appeared. I enjoyed its humor, its half-buried allusions. The puns, the almost-not-quite-quotations, the thinly-veiled references to our 'real' world—all of these delighted me. It belongs up at the top, along with 'Brave New World' and '1984'." --Robert A. Heinlein "A fascinating novel that kept me amused and interested to the end. The future society it describes is one of the most convincing I've ever encountered.” -- Arthur C. Clarke "In the tradition of Huxley, Orwell, and Bradbury... A work of extraordinary impact." -- The Los Angeles Times

Whether it can defend itself against Matt Cairns is a question only the gods can answer ...

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Experimental, strange, and unabashedly feminist, Joanna Russ's groundbreaking science fiction grew out of a belief that the genre was ideal for expressing radical thought. Her essays and criticism, meanwhile, helped shape the field and still exercise a powerful influence in both SF and feminist literary studies.Award-winning author and critic Gwyneth Jones offers a new appraisal of Russ's work and ideas. After years working in male-dominated SF, Russ emerged in the late 1960s with Alyx, the uber-capable can-do heroine at the heart of Picnic on Paradise and other popular stories and books. Soon, Russ's fearless embrace of gender politics and life as an out lesbian made her a target for male outrage while feminist classics like The Female Man and The Two of Them took SF in innovative new directions. Jones also delves into Russ's longtime work as a critic of figures as diverse as Lovecraft and Cather, her foundational place in feminist fandom, important essays like "Amor Vincit Foeminam," and her career in academia.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Joanna Russ, a feminist writer best known for The Female Man (1975), has produced a fierce, intense body of fiction and essays whose influence has been wide-ranging and complex. Her many publications include How to Suppress Women’s Writing (1983), and she has won both of science fiction's most prestigious awards, the Nebula and the Hugo. The essays in this volume examine every aspect of Russ’s body of work and provide a critical assessment that is long overdue. The first part of the book, “Criticism and Community,” gives readers a context for and overview of Russ’s works, and includes discussions of Russ’s role in the creation of a feminist science fiction tradition. The second part, “Fiction,” offers detailed analyses of some of Russ’s writing. Contributors include: Andrew M. Butler, Brian Charles Clark, Samuel R. Delany, Edward James , Sandra Lindow, Keridwen Luis, Paul March-Russell, Helen Merrick, Dianne Newell, Graham Sleight, Jenéa Tallentire, Jason Vest, Sherryl Vint, Pat Wheeler, Tess Williams, Gary K.

Book excerpt: John Boyd is back to delight readers of his superb first novel, The Last Starship from Earth. Robert A. Heinlein wrote of it: "This is the best anti-Utopia, the strongest satire on trends in our present culture, I have seen since '1984' appeared. I enjoyed its humor, its half-buried allusions. The puns, the almost-not-quite-quotations, the thinly-veiled references to our 'real' world -- all of these delighted me. It belongs up at the top, along with 'Brave New World' and '1984'." Dr. Freda Caron, blond and beautiful, had waited in vain for her fiance to disembark from Project Abie's recently returned starship. But Paul had unaccountably requested an extended tour of duty on "The Planet of Flowers" and, in his stead, he had sent an assistant, Hal Polino, with a verbal message and an exquisitely iridescent yellow tulip that not only had a plastic memory--but could talk! Freda soon realized she must unlock the secrets of the flower planet, and its strange hold on Paul, through Hal. Hal's lack of methodology and unscientific irreverence constantly confuse Freda, and they battle one another, the ultra-rational world-of-tomorrow they inhabit, and, ultimately, the strange, sentient, unearthly flower planet Freda journeys to explore. The climax of this shocking and oddly beautiful novel is bizarre and delightful. Another admirer of John Boyd's debut novel was Arthur C. Clarke, who wrote: "A fascinating novel that kept me amused and interested to the end. The future society it describes is one of the most convincing I've ever encountered."
