Imagination/Space is a collection of talks and essays on fiction, feminism, technology, and politics by Gwyneth Jones, the 2008 recipient of the Science Fiction Research Association's Pilgrim Award, conferred annually on science fiction s premiere critics for lifetime achievement. Among the twenty-two pieces in Imagination/Space you will find Jones s acceptance speech for the Pilgrim Award; her detailed notes on shadowing a scientist in a lab in preparation for writing her Philip K. Dick Award-winning novel, Life; ''String of Pearls,'' a fascinating talk she presented at the 2004 World Fantasy Con that muses on the relationship between sex and horror as it focuses on Jacquelyn Carey s Kushiel Trilogy and what happens when a woman is the Chosen One of a fantasy epic; re-evaluations of classic feminist sf novels; a look at the entry of women writers into the traditionally male subgenre of militarist sf; a consideration of girl power on television; and her report on the W.I.S.E.R. conference in Maastricht. Her sharp analyses and witty observations make this a must-read for anyone who cares about feminism, science fiction, or both.
