One thing I found intriguing was that almost all the pictures had women as their subjects as well as their creators. There was also a notable absence of machinery, futuristic cities, and scenes of war, though this could be because such subjects are considered to be science fiction rather than fantasy. Amazon babes with skimpy clothing, huge breasts, and lots of armament were also missing. Wonder why…. For the most part these women were softer, though the works suggested that a number of them could be equally deadly—but in a more subtle way.
My only criticism of the book is that I wish the names of the works had been included; that might have helped readers figure out what was going on in some of the pictures. Relatedly, I wish more artists had said something about the pictured works, as a few did. On the other hand, I appreciate the editor’s inclusion of the artists’ websites and the titles of books of their work where those existed. There are certainly some I will want to look up.
