Adds to Encyclopedia
Two pieces by English faculty member Ed Carmien are featured in Women
in Science Fiction and Fantasy, a new two-volume encyclopedia. His
entries include a brief biography of C.J. Cherryh (1942- ), a prolific
writer who has penned more than 60 novels, short story collections, and
works of non-fiction, translations and edited texts; and an essay entitled
"Romantic Traditions in Science Fiction and Fantasy," which
relates science fiction and fantasy writing to Romanticism, a tradition
of "writing that privileges the imagination." Carmien observes
that the science fiction and fantasy genre provides female authors with
an opportunity to address gender issues and struggle against patriarchy.
The encyclopedia is edited by Robin Anne Reid and published by Greenwood
Press, Westport, CT, 2009.
