I go where my passion takes me, which if you ask me is the key to all good writing. Very rare these days, not many of them left." Janus flourished by publishing a mix- ture of articles, reviews, letters of com- ment from readers, convention (con) reports, and author interviews, the lat- ter of which became an important part of both Janus and one of its successors, Neuj Moon. That included Pratchett himself, whose letter of acceptance was blisteringly sarcastic—and ended with him insisting that the presenter of the letter give his signature as Sir Terry Pratchett.

The Khentorei are unicorn-riding nomads whose horse-worship, royal sacrifice, code of honor, and respect for nature are remi- niscent of Native American, Mongol, and Celtic traditions; a goddess associated with earth magic plays a strong role. In her Skolian Empire novels, Cather- ine Asaro successfully blends hard SF, space opera, and the contemporary romance genre to produce scientifically informed adventure tales with love sto- ries at their cores.

Their goals are often complicated by the influence of Seishiro Sakurazuka, a family friend, and as the plot unravels, Subaru and Seishiro 's relationship becomes more of a focal 131 Women in Science Fiction and Fantasy Volume 1: Overviews point of the story.

While many series settle for one world, Zelazny takes on infinite worlds all with different properties and values. In the succeeding spring, the perusal of old Isaac Walton's fascinating volume determined Edward to become ``a brother of the angle.'' But of all diversions which ingenuity ever devised for the relief of idleness, fishing is the worst qualified to amuse a man who is at once indolent and impatient; and our hero's rod was speedily flung aside. Four bare-legged dairy-maids, with each an empty milk-pail in her hand, ran about with frantic gestures, and uttering loud exclamations of surprise, grief, and resentment.

Unfortunately, Robert Jordan passed away before he could finish the series. Chapters 25 and 26, "The Creation of Literature for the Young" and "Girls and the Fantastic," consider the social context in which children's and young adult fantasy and science fiction developed, as well as the portrayal of girls in literature, comics, television, and film. One half of the gate, entirely destroyed and split up for firewood, lay in piles, ready to be taken away; the other swung uselessly about upon its loosened hinges.

If you are writing about a feudal society like medieval Europe, one in which a few very wealthy landowners keep most of the population as serfs (basically, a form of slave labor), then the government would be focused on keeping common people in their place and glorifying the rich, giving landowners and nobility all sorts of privileges and denying basic rights to everyone else. The latter herself turned to science fiction to express concerns that could not be expressed in any other medium.
