The essays in this volume examine every aspect of Russ's body of work and provide a critical assessment that is long overdue. The first part of the book, «Criticism and Community», gives readers a context for and overview of Russ's works, and includes discussions of Russ's role in the creation of a feminist science fiction tradition. The second part, «Fiction», offers detailed analyses of some of Russ's writing.

Cover art «Alpine Princess» (1981) by James Gurney.
