Heller, 9 highly-educated Supreme Court justices came to two diametrically opposite interpretations of the Second Amendment (the one about the right to bear arms). The Feminist SF Community Webpage began in 1994 as a single-author bibliography, but Quil- ter soon realized that there was a need for a more general reference, and later that year she began compiling a biblio- graphic index of feminist science fic- tion and fantasy. Late in her career, Brackett wrote an initial draft of George Lucas's space opera The Empire Strikes Back (1980).

Westerns were very popular throughout the 1950s and 1960s. Much to the reader’s surprise, the gambler stabs the Swede, killing him. Nothing demonstrates the complexity of literary language more vividly.

It was another boy who everyone thought was hilarious. Reprint, New York: Harper Paper- backs, 1994. Sarah is drawn to layered/strong characters with engaging voices. Most famous for his short stories about the detective – Sherlock Holmes, such as The Hound of the Baskervilles (1902) and Sign of Four (1890). Moon began writing stories and poems as a child and turned to writing science fiction as a teenager. Significantly, Stone tempers this feminist power fantasy by carefully adhering to another narrative convention of early SF: she insists that her aliens are distinctly nonhuman beings, complete with rubbery appendages, golden fur, and moveable eyes, who smell, hear, touch, and ingest food with organs they extrude from their bodies at will.
