WisCon, a literary festival for feminists interested in science fiction and fantasy, has for over three decades attracted people with diverse and stronlgy held opinions. It hasn't always suffered them gladly, and it doesn't necessarily mediate the arguments that ensue, but WisCon does not homogenize their points of view, and it provides an ongoing opportunity for feminists WisCon, a literary festival for feminists interested in science fiction and fantasy, has for over three decades attracted people with diverse and stronlgy held opinions. It hasn't always suffered them gladly, and it doesn't necessarily mediate the arguments that ensue, but WisCon does not homogenize their points of view, and it provides an ongoing opportunity for feminists of all stripes to get together and laugh, talk, and enrich one another. This volume explores some of the issue of interest at WisCon 2007: gender, race, culture, revolution, and the future of thinking about those matters, and it also includes a forum on how to deal with racist and sexist material in writing workshops as well as the epistolary performance that constituted Kelly Link and Laurie J. Marks' jointly delivered Guest of Honor speeches.

    Well, I was one of the editors, so I thought it was pretty good.

    More smart people saying really smart things! I liked this volume a little better than the one before. There were a few more shorter pieces, including several people's answer to what the think the politics being discussed at Wiscon 41 will be. There are several long pieces on the same panel, the 'revolution' in the subtitle of the book. That's not a panel I would've attended. A lot of the discussion was uninteresting to me, and some of it incomprehensible. I don't have the background. So I skippe More smart people saying really smart things!

There are several long pieces on the same panel, the 'revolution' in the subtitle of the book. That's not a panel I would've attended. A lot of the discussion was uninteresting to me, and some of it incomprehensible. I don't have the background. So I skipped one of the pieces on this, though I did read the others. At the end is the GoH speech by Kelly Link and Laurie Marks. It's really good. And I really, really wish I had been there to see it live and in person. I'm sure it was a much different experience from reading the script. Overall, a very interesting read. And it's just a shame there were none of these before Wiscon 30. (At least, I don't think there were.)
