Feminist Science Fiction
Workshop on Feminist Science Fiction at the Texas NOW Convention to be held October 21, 1995 in San Marcos, Texas.
SO: you have read all the novels of the worlds of Darkover and/or Pern -- what can you read next? OR: you have gone through The Gate To Women's Country and chewed up The Left Hand of Darkness -- where is there more worthy science fiction to read? This workshop will provide a working definition of Feminist Science Fiction (including speculative fiction and fantasy), and will provide lists of recommended books from personal reading, and from the Internet newsgroup rec.arts.sf.written and from pages on the World Wide Web. Happy feminist reading!
