13 of 18 people found the following review helpful By A.J. Chodan on July 16, 2000
Format: Paperback
First, I have one of the essays in this book to thank for getting me started on Darkover. If only for that, it deserves a few stars.
Beyond that, it's difficult not to enjoy reading an essay that narrowly missed being titled "The Triumph of the Flasher." Russ writes clearly and humorously of the problems that face women connected with the written word -- both as authors and as characters (often in stories written by men).
