From the author of The Handmaid’s Tale and Alias Grace* Rabbit superheroes. A theory of masks and capes. Victorian otherlands. From her 1940s childhood to her time at Harvard, Margaret Atwood has always been fascinated with SF. In 2010, she delivered a lecture series at Emory University called ‘In Other Worlds: SF and the Human Imagination.’ This book is the result of those lectures. It includes essays on Ursula Le Guin and H G Wells, her interesting distinction between ‘science fiction proper’ and ‘speculative fiction’, and the letter which she wrote to the school which tried to ban The Handmaid’s Tale.
