    Phyllis M. Betz(Author)
Examines how lesbian authors have used the structures and conventions of science fiction to embody characters, relationships and other themes that relate to their experience as the quintessential Other in the broader culture. Topics include lesbian gothic, fantasy, science fiction, mixed genre texts, and historical background for the works discussed.

"Betz is astute in underscoring how lesbian-authored fantasy can provide a framework for being different, for accepting differences in others, and for recognizing that one's desires are not evil or abhorrent. Valuable...highly recommended"--Choice; "Betz is to be praised for her willingness to introduce readers to less known, highly contemporary objects of study"--Science Fiction Studies; "Betz demonstrates a thorough knowledge of the field of the fantastic"--Journal of the Fantastic in the Arts.
