Books: single author

Book-length works represent most of the critical work on feminist science fiction that is not about a particular author or work. The books in this section refer to many primary sources but also develop some analysis of feminist science fiction as a sub-g enre or descriptive category of science fiction.

This is in no way a comprehensive list, and researchers are advised to seek particular articles through the edited collections or the indexes listed above.
