This list is a hodgepodge of works that have been recommended
but not read, read but not reviewed, or read and reviewed but not appropriate
(for one reason or another) for the fem-sf/f/u primary bibliography. (If it
was read and reviewed but not appropriate that review will be included, along
with a note as to why it isn't on the primary bibliography.) Didn't find an
author here? Be sure to check the primary bibliography of reviews.
The criteria in question are usually the work's feminism or relevance to feminism;
sometimes its genre relevance is under consideration as well (is the work fantastic,
magically real, utopia, sf/f, etc.).

feelings. Then when it becomes possible to create an androgynous unisex woman who
can reproduce by herself, men are in danger of becoming extinct. There is only one
person who can save men, and she is a cloned female genetically designed to be a
perfect woman, but to do that she would have to go against the established female
government and as a perfect woman does she even want to save imperfect men?"

- Boye, Karin. Kallocain
(1940, Sweden) - major dystopian novel; she
was a communist who became disillusioned ... lq's review from amazon.com:
"i wouldn't call it "hilarious", for sure, but i definitely agree that Karin
Boye has done us a great service in writing this book. Reminiscent of 1984
and also of Yvgeny Zamyatin's WE, KALLOCAIN is actually more frightening than
either of those. The mind of the "collaborator," the willing citizen of a
totalitarian state, is laid bare; his rationales and fears are thus universalized,
and one sees the tyrant in all of us ... "
Kallocain doesn't address gender or sex at all, and so
is neither feminist nor anti-feminist, but it is an important work by a
mid-20th century woman activist.

reprinted 1974 by Arno Press; 0-405-06270-2; 0-405-06981-8). Women in the
US and England lead a feminist revolution; but true love conquers all.
Several short love stories taking place during a feminist revolution.
After a while everybody gets tired of the new order, and revolts,
re-establishing the old order (capitalism & patriarchy) with a few
reforms. Patronizing & humorous rather than misogynistic; while
recognizing some of the problems of the current order that have inspired
suffragettes & women's rights movements, nonetheless seems to suggest that
the world will be fine with just a few reforms. Seems to have been
written by a man for a woman he was, perhaps, wooing. notes from the work

- Chiang, Ted. "Seventy-Two Letters", first appeared in Vanishing
Acts (2000); republished in "Stories of Your Life" and Others by Ted
Chiang (2002). Interesting story; takes as its premise that many of the premises
of medieval science are true. Cabbalistic theory; homunculi; the word is life. In
this story, scientists discover that the human species is destined to end:
they've tested numerous homunculi and discovered that the number is finite, and
short. They then attempt to develop ways of animating ova to generate human
fetuses -- which they call parthenogenesis. "It was a basic dictum of biology:
females were the source of the vital principle that gave the offspring life,
while males provided the basic form. Because of this division, neither sex could
reproduce by itself."
In an amusing lesbian reference, the protagonist muses: "Of
course, that restriction had been lifted by Ashbourne's discovery: the male's
participation was no longer necessary since form could be induced lexically. Once
a name was found that could generate human foetuses, women could reproduce purely
by themselves. Stratton realized that such a discovery might be welcomed by women
exhibiting sexual inversion, feeling love for persons of the same rather than the
opposite sex. If the name were to become available to such women, they might
establish a commune of some sort that reproduced via parthenogenesis. Would such
a society flourish by magnifying the finer sensibilities of the gentle sex, or
would it collapse under the unrestrained pathology of its membership? It was
impossible to guess." [Of course, they had earlier noted that the technology
would be available only to married women.]
