Queer universes : sexualities in science fiction by Wendy G Pearson( )

19 editions published between 2008 and 2011 in English and held by 1,355 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The essays in Queer Universes investigate both contemporary and historical practices of constructing sexualities and genders in science fiction literature. While individual essays examine many different depictions of sexuality in sf and its relation to race, gender, class and species, all are informed by some aspect of queer theory and its critique of binary sexual definitions and of sexual normativity."--Jacket
Parabolas of science fiction by Brian Attebery( )

8 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 1,131 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As a geometric term, parabola suggests a narrative trajectory or story arc. In science fiction, parabolas take us from the known to the unknown. More concrete than themes, more complex than motifs, parabolas are combinations of meaningful setting, character, and action that lend themselves to endless redefinition and jazzlike improvisation. The fourteen original essays in this collection explore how the field of science fiction has developed as a complex of repetitions, influences, arguments, and broad conversations. This particular feature of the genre has been the source of much critical commentary, most notably through growing interest in the ?sf megatext,? a continually expanding archive of shared images, situations, plots, characters, settings, and themes found in science fiction across media. Contributors include Jane Donawerth, Terry Dowling, L. Timmel Duchamp, Rachel Haywood Ferreira, Pawel Frelik, David M. Higgins, Amy J. Ransom, John Rieder, Nicholas Ruddick, Graham Sleight, Gary K. Wolfe, and Lisa Yaszek--from publisher's website
Edging into the future : science fiction and contemporary cultural transformation( Book )

9 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 514 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Blood read : the vampire as metaphor in contemporary culture( Book )

8 editions published between 1997 and 2016 in English and held by 504 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The vampire is one of the nineteenth century's most powerful surviving archetypes, due largely to Bela Lugosi's portrayal of Dracula, the Bram Stoker creation. Yet the figure of the vampire has undergone many transformations in recent years, thanks to Anne Rice's Vampire Chronicles and other works, and many young people now identify with vampires in complex ways." "Scholars and writers from the United States, Canada, England, and Japan examine how today's vampire has evolved from that of the last century, consider the vampire as a metaphor for consumption within the context of social concerns, and discuss the vampire figure in terms of contemporary literary theory. In addition, three writers of vampire fiction - Suzy McKee Charnas (author of the now-classic The Vampire Tapestry), Brian Stableford (writer of the lively and erudite novels The Empire of Fear and Young Blood), and Jewelle Gomez (creator of the dazzling Gilda stories) - discuss their own uses of the vampire, focusing on race and gender politics, eroticism, and the nature of evil."--Jacket
