The 1870s through the 1930s saw a boom in fiction about lost races and cultures. For some male writers, such stories set in warm and fertile regions were a pretext for indulging in what Anne McClintock has labeled the "porno-tropic tradition." In addition, her novel The Kingdom of Kevin Malone won the Mytho- poeic Fantasy Award for Children's Lit- erature in 1994 Impulse & Initiative (Pemberley Variations).

Esther Mac Callum- Stewart and Justin Parsler Weird Tales Throughout its initial incarnation from 1923 to 1954, the magazine Weird Tales, then the leading magazine in the United States for supernatural fiction, had a sizable if minor presence of work by- women Anybody Out There (Walsh Family Book 4). A less original writer would have made the husband hate his cash-cow wife but Henry genuinely adores Martha. One can trace the genesis of Henry’s character in some of the lovable psychopaths created by Patricia Highsmith The Joke's on Me. He sheds his "western barbarian" ways as he absorbs the language and local customs, and a powerful feudal lord teaches him the samurai tradition Destiny's Daughters. We’re delighted to reveal the 20 books that make up the 2015 Baileys Women’s Prize for Fiction longlist.

Eden Lee Lackner Gothic Gothic is a term loosely associated with all things spooky, macabre, darkly su- pernatural, and ancient. As a literary genre, the gothic can be identified by certain conventions. Gothic texts are typically set in haunted or decayed structures like medieval castles, grave- yards, mansions, or abbeys. Gothic nar- ratives are obsessed with the past, particularly in terms of family lineage and ancient curses, and they usually contain multiple embedded or inset ta- les My Sister Life : The Story of My Sister's Disappearance.

DONELLE RUWE Gotlieb, Phyllis (1926- ) Phyllis Gotlieb is the most important female author of science fiction (SF) in English-speaking Canada and one of that country's most important authors in the genre Impulse & Initiative (Pemberley Variations). From the New York Times bestselling author of The Marriage of Opposites and The Dovekeepers comes a soul-searching story about a young woman struggling to redefine herself and the power of love, family, and fate Out of the fashion ([L.T. Meade series]). In the late 1970s, she first discussed a suicide pact with her husband, Ting; they agreed that they did not want to live into infirm old age Angels All Over Town. He is best known, however, for merging several popular folktales that had previously provided the source material for baroque ver- sions into modern tales designed to appeal to audiences "of all ages." Per- rault is the first author to have marked the fairy tale as a genre for children, with the publication of his Histoires ou contes du temps passe, or Contes de ma Mere I'Oye, designed to present the tales as they had been told by "governesses and grandmothers to little children." Then Josie drowns in a boating accident while they're on vacation, and the family falls apart even further. But when their son (and only surviving child) contracts cancer, Ruth and Paul are drawn back together -- only to be tested one more time by another crisis Expectations of Happiness. There are the glossy magazines that tell us what kind of makeup to buy and exactly how to apply it. There are the celebrity gossip rags for walking us through the intricacies of tearing another woman apart. There is the narrow sliver of women who are held up as beautiful, and then there are the reminders that ultimately what counts is on the inside, though for those of us less genetically blessed it’s especially important that we make sure our insides really sparkle—no being strident or opinionated, no being a dumb blonde who only cares about shoes (PS turn to page 52 for this seasons must-have shoes!)
