"Larbalestier plunges into her account of the sex-wars that have emerged in the pages of science fiction magazines with intelligence, much information and a good deal of common sense. In light of today's interest in the position of women, she reports on this conflict not only with fascinating documentation and a cascade of insights, but also with great intellectual richness and readability." --- Samuel R. Delany, author of Dhalgren

The Battle of the Sexes traces a genre within science fiction with wit, insight and impressive archival work. This is a wonderful project, brilliantly conceived, with fantastic research.”--- Jane Donawerth, author of Frankenstein’s Daughters: Women Writing Science Fiction

"This book is a must-have for anyone interested in feminism and sf..."---Robin Anne Reid, SFRA Newsletter

"Of the many fine works of criticism that have appeared this year, this is one of the best." ---Javier A. Martinez, Extrapolation
