Deconstructing the starships : science, fiction, and reality by Gwyneth A Jones( )

12 editions published between 1999 and 2019 in English and held by 1,398 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"These essays and reviews have been selected from work by a practising SF writer produced during a decade in which the stuff of science fiction became part of everyday life. Dreams of galactic empire did not come true, the Invaders from Mars (or from any other alien planet in our locality) are consigned to fantasy. But a great deal of the future imagined by Gwyneth Jones' generation of SF writers is actually with us; reality and science fiction are moving into close conjunction, so that SF is no longer the strange reflection and artistic elaboration of current pre-occupations. 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 both provides insight into the work of one of our most interesting writers and presents strongsometimes even subversive - views of a range of modern SF and fantasy."--Jacket
Joanna Russ by Gwyneth A Jones( )

9 editions published between 2019 and 2020 in English and held by 958 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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

But Altair knows something he can't tell. Kir, like all humans, is programmed to ignore future dangers. Between the artificial blocks in his mind, and the blocks evolution has built into his host, how is he going to convince her the sky is falling' Proof of Concept is a science fiction novella from Arthur C.
