Women of Wonder, the Classic Years: Science Fiction by Women from the 1940s to the 1970s, Sargent, Pamela (editor)
2 Women of Wonder, the Classic Years: Science Fiction by Women from the 1940s to the 1970s Sargent, Pamela (editor)
0156000318 / 9780156000314 Very Good. 
Paperback. Softcover 1995 Harvest Books/Harcourt Brace. Light wear to covers: minor scratches. Small crease to one page corner. Very clean; no marks; pages bright; binding tight; spine uncreased. 438 pages; Recommended Reading list. Language: English. Cover art by Michael Koelsch. 'In the '70s, Sargent edited three Women of Wonder anthologies, and 18 writers from this original trio (some with new stories) are joined here by three newcomers to the series, to give an eye-opening overview of science fiction and women between 1944 and 1978. Exploring topics such as prejudice, child abuse, vanity, stereotypes, aging, rape, obesity and insanity, stories by Marion Zimmer Bradley, Zenna Henderson, Kit Reed, Kate Wilhelm, Joan Vinge, the pseudonymous James Tiptree Jr. and others are as disconcerting as they are intriguing. Judith Merril's That Only a Mother capitalizes on the fear of nuclear warfare as a new mother deals with the effects of radiation in her own unique way. Anne McCaffrey's The Ship Who Sang carries the idea that ships are feminine one step further when a spaceship falls in love with her pilot. Sargent highlights the history of women in science fiction in an information-packed introduction. In addition, notes about each author and an extensive bibliography will satisfy the curiosity of those wanting additional information on this topic.'--Publishers Weekly, 1995. Keywords: 20th century literature, sci-fi, fiction, fantasy, women authors, anthology.
