Deconstructing the Starships

Science, Fiction and Reality

Gwyneth Jones

Liverpool University Press

The subject matter of this collection is varied, but displays Jones' stance as a practising SF writer and a feminist; the writing is characterised by both an incisive engagement with the texts and a refusal to dress that engagement in jargon. This very readable book provides insight into the work of one of our most interesting writers and presents strong sometimes even subversive views of a range of modern SF and fantasy.
