Rare jewels of Victorian fiction highlight the fantastic
contributions made by women writers in the early development of
A selection of early science fiction short stories by women are
collected here, along with an introduction exploring the
contributions women made in the early development of the field--in
particular the different perspectives they cast on the wonders or
fears that technological and scientific advances may bring. The
contributions of women to the history of science fiction and to the
genre's development has been sorely overlooked. "Frankenstein,"
generally reckoned as the first true work of science fiction, was
by Mary Shelley, and one of the first utopian works written in
America was also by a woman, Mary Griffith. A companion volume to
his acclaimed "The Darker Sex," Mike Ashley's latest collection is
more essential reading by such female writers as Mary Shelley,
Clare Winger Harris, Adeline Knapp, and many others.
