    Margaret Atwood is a bit like my friend Lil she is both right AND left brained She writes like a dream and knows her way around science and technology.Many people ask Atwood why she does not like the term science fiction for her work She calls three of her works ustopias Of one, The Handmaid s Tale, she writes that she would not put into this book anything that humankind had not already done, somewhere, sometime, or for which it did not already have the tools Later in the book in an Margaret Atwood is a bit like my friend...

    In Other Worlds is not a catalogue of science fiction, a grand theory about it, or a literary history of it It is not a treatise, it is not definitive, it is not exhaustive, it is not canonical It is not the work of a practising academic or an official guardian of a body of knowledge Rather it is an exploration of...

    I m continuing with my promise of readingMargaret Atwood, this time with something quite different If last time I read Alias Grace which for me was a pleasant change of pace from the usual speculative fiction I grew expecting from Margaret, now I m moving to the realm of non fiction with this collection of essays, some short stories and thoughts from the one and only Margaret Atwood.The title of the book, In Other Worlds SF and the Human Imagination, says it all This is a book about sci I m continuing with my promise of readingMargaret Atwood, this time with something quite different If last ti...

    Collection of essays, mostly about science fiction and the struggle to define it Atwood sets the record straight about how she really sees science fiction Early half of the book is better, though the best thing is the letter she wrote to a school district that tried to ban Handmaid s Tale.

    The first part of In Other Worlds feels like you re hanging out with Margaret Atwood drinking wine when she has a bit too much to drink and starts ramblingly postulating on science fiction, mostly focusing on her relationship with the genre It was interesting but I thought told usabout Margaret Atwood than it did about science fiction and the human imagination The best segment was Atwood s musings on the interconnected relationship between dystopia and utopia, which provided an interes The first part of In Other Worlds feels like you re hanging out with Margaret Atwood drinking wine when she has a bit too much to drink and starts ramblingly postulating on science fiction, mostly focusing on her relationship with the genre It was interesting but I thought told usabout Margaret Atwood than it did about science fiction and the human imagination The best segment was Atwood s musings on the interconnected relationship between dystopia and utopia, which provided an interesting framework to look at Atwood s books as well as many other SF works.I felt the second part of the book, in which Atwood shares her reflections on specific works such as Brave New World and the stories of Ursula K LeGuin, wasinteresting and insightful Though I had expectedg...

    I love and respect Atwood s work She is creative, imaginative and has just the right pinch of cynicism added to her work to give it spunk and spice The only issue I ve ever had with her was, that I read that, she refused to classify her later novels as Science Fiction To me, the Madd Adam Trilogy, A Hand Maid s Tale and The Heart Goes Last fit well into that genre So this was a really cool collection of articles, book reviews and essays plus short stories and commentaries that made the I love and respect Atwood s work She is creative, imaginative and has just the right pinch of cynicism added to her work to give it spunk and spice The only issue I ve ever had with her was, that I read that, she refused to classify her later novels as Science Fiction To me, the Madd Adam Trilogy, A Hand Maid s Tale and The Heart Goes Last fit well into that genre So this was a really cool collection of articles, book reviews and essays plus short stories and commentaries that made the case for Atwood, It is clear that she had nothing against the genre to the contrary, she was inspired by it She loves and respects the work of Ursula Le Guin seems to believe she does a far better a job at it than she, herself can.I simply loved this book I think everyone should have a look at it Atwood has a very clear idea of what a Utopia Distopia and and what she thinks separated Fantasy from Scifi.There is some repetition here as some of the c...
