Look for the Science Fiction Invention Category that interests you, the Glossary of Science Fiction Inventions, the Timeline of Science Fiction Inventions, or see what's New. In The Female Man Russ presents four principal female characters: Jeannine, living in a perpetual Great Depression, represents the malleable, soft, would-be ’50s housewife; Joanna, living in the present of the ’70s, is intelligent and intellectual but still expected to find a man to marry; Janet is a product of the futuristic, all-female Whileaway; and Jael is located temporally in a near future where feminist struggle has become an actual war between men and women.

It applies to work that answers the question "What if...?" This word, which literally combines the words cyber and punk, first appeared as the title of a short story entitled “Cyberpunk,” by Bruce Bethke. Cyberpunk is a subgenre of science fiction in a future setting, noted for its focus on "high tech and low life". Either way the point I’m trying to make is that, as Writing Excuses has said before, most genre fiction tries to get away with as little research as possible.

Note the ironic use of the name "Memory Lane." We’ve done our own extensive reading of the Sci-Fi that’s out there. The city’s crowds make up a multilingual mass exhibiting a dazzling plurality of ethnic or subcultural dress codes. But all kinds of people live on the metaphorical street, including suburban teens, ad executives, civil libertarians, software engineers, and movie producers. I got to Toronto early in 1967 and it was the first time I had been in a big city that was pedestrian friendly, not to mention foreign, so I just stayed there.

Initial contract length will be for exclusive print and electronic rights for one year. I remember my first fan days, my first conventions.

To me this is the most jarring, unfamiliar thing about the story. Plenty of "social justice warriors" write badly, and writers like Robert Heinlein are superb (Heinlein was a genius at straight-faced put-ons—you could never tell if he meant what he said or was just pursuing a thought experiment to its logical end). I always had a feeling that Chandler’s puritanism got in the way, and I was never quite as taken with the language as true Chandler fans seem to be. She changed her weapons, her way of killing.

There are also several interesting themed anthologies containing strong recent work by current writers as well. The paradigm was William Gibson's highly successful novel Neuromancer, a near-future thriller about computer hackers, artificial intelligence and corporate warfare. This is a lesson Delany learned in part from living in New York City as a gay man in the nineteen-seventies and eighties.

"If a future Earth is depicted as being wrecked by catastrophes then what's optimistic is the resilience of human civilisation. "This is far more optimistic than pretending that the future will have no storms in it."
