Maybe I can just transcribe the really funny bits of Joanna Russ's phone interview from WisCon (she'd just had--hip replacement surgery, I think? so she granted an interview via Chip Delany) in which she performed a feminist critique of Why Spike Is the Thinking Woman's Hott!! and call that a proposal.
(I just wrote her a hugely embarrassing fan letter. It was only my second or third real fan letter. But I had the Carnival ARC in front of me, and it seemed like a good idea at the time.)
By the way, you have thirteen more minutes to buy this book and still count as one of the cool kids.
