This collection of eleven original essays speaks to common themes and strategies in women's writing about their different worlds, from Margaret Cavendish's seventeenth-century "Blazing World of the North Pole" to the men less' islands of the French writer Scudery to the eighteenth and nineteenth-century utopias of Shelley and Gaskell, and science fiction pulps, finishing with the more contemporary feminist fictions of Le Guin, Wittig, Piercy and Mitchison.
