"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

Editorial Reviews


“Lisa Yaszek & Patrick B. Sharp’s Sisters of Tomorrow: The First Women of Science Fiction represents an ambitious effort to bring to light not only the women writers of the era, but editors, artists, poets, and journalists was well. It is as complete a picture as we’re likely to get, both as anthology and as critical work, of the role of women in the field between roughly 1929 to 1945.” —Gary K. Wolfe, Locus

“Sisters of Tomorrow is a fascinating look at a group of writers whose work is often forgotten. The decision to include journalists, editors, artists and poets highlights the role of women not only in SF literature but, equally importantly, in the genre’s community.”—James Holloway, Fortean Times


“An indispensable introduction, overview, and guide to women writers of sf in the pulps from 1929 to the 1940s, making available work previously only accessible to those with access to fast-disintegrating pulp magazines. No scholar of science fiction should be without this remarkable book.” (Justine Larbalestier, author of Battle of the Sexes in Science Fiction)

“Lucid, meticulously researched, and engaging, providing early science-fiction writing from pioneering women in the field, and an excellent critical apparatus for framing these works within their respective historical contexts.” (Jane Donawerth, author of Frankenstein’s Daughters: Women Writing Science Fiction)

“I hope Sisters of Tomorrow flies long and high.” (Ursula Le Guin, winner of the National Book Foundation Medal for Distinguished Contribution to American Letters)

“This brilliant multi-genre anthology traces the origins and influences of women writers, editors, and artists who found a home in early science-fiction magazines.” (Lisa Swanstrom, Department of English, Florida Atlantic University)
