And Chaos Died
NY, ACE, (1970). An ACE paperback original, the second novel by this feminist sci-fi author who won the Hugo Award, the Nebula Award, and the James Tiptree Jr. Award, among others. This copy is signed by Russ, and uncommon thus. Very minor age-toning to pages; else fine. The publisher touts this as "The First Major SF Novel of the 1970's," and while that may be debatable there is no question that Russ hit the Science Fiction field like a whirlwind, challenging male supremacy and the outdated attitudes that came with it, and engendering enormous controversy for a time. She became a major figure, perhaps the major figure, in opening up science fiction writing to women and other marginalized peoples. [#035328] SOLD
