Sisters of Tomorrow, edited by Lisa Yaszek and Patrick B. Sharp
Trade paperback – Wesleyan University Press – Jun 2016 – 393 pages
This anthology documents how women in the early twentieth century contributed to the science fiction magazine community and showcases the content they produced, including short stories, editorials, illustration, poetry, and science journalism. Yaszek and Sharp’s critical annotation and author biographies link women’s work in the early science fiction community to larger patterns of feminine literary and cultural production in turn-of-the-twentieth-century America. In a concluding essay, author Kathleen Ann Goonan considers such work in relation to the history of women in science and engineering and to the contemporary science fiction community itself.
