She has edited and published Rec Room Rhymes, a fanzine of filk song lyrics, produced six audiocassettes of her own 323 Women in Science Fiction and Fantasy Volume 1: Overviews filk songs, and appeared on convention compilation recordings Pride and Prejudice. At times, her Great Dictator sto- ries have been interpreted as depictions of Nazism; in other moments, as visions of Communism. "The Human Pets of Mars" (1936) has leading charac- ters that include teenage girls, old senators, and African Americans kid- napped by aliens who sell them along with other strange pets Sister to Sister. In her discussion of Poe's The Narrative of Arthur Gordon Pym, Morrison argues that no "early American writer is more important to the con- cept of American Africanism" (32), describing the impact of Poe's images of powerful whiteness set against the images of dead or controlled blackness Girls From Da Hood 3.

The Men in Her Life

In a 1945 story arc, Miss Fury had to prevent the mad scientist Doctor Diman from try- ing out a deadly chemical he had invented on his two-year-old ward. The chemical would have completely dissolved the child. Miss Fury rescued the little boy and adopted him, making her the first superhero to be a mother Sky Bridge. Her preferred method for "demythologizing" these powerful fic- tions, which insist on women's passiv- ity and subordination, was to create intricate intertextual webs. Intertextual- ity refers to a writer reworking or refer- ring to previously produced cultural, literary, or artistic materials. By draw- ing from the cultural archive of West- ern European imagination to rewrite familiar stories from a female perspec- tive and using irony, exaggeration, and pastiche, Carter not only emphasizes the artificiality and inherent contradic- tions of these myths but also points out liberating possibilities for transfor- mation What My Sister Didn't Know (G Street Chronicles Presents).

In Susan Shwartz's Shards of Empire (1996), a key conflict lies in the Christian protagonist's desire to marry a Jewess in Byzantium. Guy Gavriel Kay also explores religious conflict in that city in his duology The Sar- antine Mosaic, in which an analogue of the oft-reviled Empress Theodora is a sympathetic character. Marie Jakober's The Black Chalice (2000), set in twelfth- century Germany, recounts the clash of Christian and pagan faiths from the viewpoint of a monk concerned for the soul of a war leader in love with a pagan priestess Trying to Stay Saved (New Day Divas).

They grew out of largely Earth- bound Utopias, dystopias, and escapist fantasies; incredible travel narratives; quests involving expedition, separa- tion, and rediscovery; and tales of lost races, cities, civilizations, lands, and worlds Five Miles South of Peculiar: A Novel. It has been read as a family drama that validates virtue over wealth", but also "as a means of escaping that life by women who knew its gender constraints only too well".

It asserts "Jennifer Breen's readable account tells you all you have ever wanted to know about women's fiction this century." She researches and publishes in the areas of folklore/material culture, science fiction/fantasy, and children's/young adult literatures. She is the coeditor (with Gwendolyn Pough) of the November 2005 special issue of Femspec, "Speculative Black Women: Magic, Fantasy, and The Supernatural." On the other hand, Gloria Steinem noted that the reason the staff of Ms. put the Amazon princess on the cover of their first issue was that she and the other founding editors had all been "rescued" by Wonder Woman when they were girls; in her introduction to a 1972 collection of Wonder Woman stories, Steinem describes her joy of reading about such a woman Three Sisters. De- spite their political messages, Hein- lein's stories usually continued the tradition of pulp science fiction adven- ture and therefore appealed most to a young male reader seeking, as one leading critic remarked, his own dream. Perhaps the most prominent of male fantasies Heinlein promoted was his depiction of women and sexuality.
