Samenvatting

Partners in Wonder revolutionizes our knowledge of women and early science fiction. Contrary to accepted interpretations, women fans and writers were a welcome and influential part of pulp science fiction from the birth of the genre. Davin finds that at least 203 female authors, under their own female names, published over a thousand stories in science fiction magazines between 1926 and 1965. This work explores the distinctly different form of science fiction that females produced—one that was both more utopian and more empathetic than that of their male counterparts. Partners in Wonder presents, for the first time, a complete bibliography of every story published by women writers in science fiction magazines from 1926 to 1965 and brief biographies on 133 of these women writers. It is thus the most comprehensive source of information on early women science fiction writers yet available and of great importance to scholars of women's studies, popular culture, and English literature as well as science fiction.

Recensie(s)

Davin's book should be essential reading for all in order to dispel the myth that there was a bias against women writers before the 1960s. Quite the opposite. Davin proves that the sf magazines were arguably the most liberal and most receptive of all of the pulps and that the sf fraternity welcomed the female contribution to the world. * Foundation * [This book] is a masterpiece of scholarly fieldwork. * The New York Review Of Science Fiction * Davin's book is a fascinating and superbly researched look at an area where for too long anecdotal evidence has been accepted in place of facts. It is also a compelling examination of how 'common knowledge' may influence the choices people make, right down to coloring their perceptions of themselvessss -- Dr. Jane Lindskold, Author of the Firekeeper Saga Davin's book is a fascinating and superbly researched look at an area where for too long anecdotal evidence has been accepted in place of facts.
