MEDIA REVIEWS

'BDSM in American Science Fiction and Fantasy is a pure pleasure. At once lightly written and theoretically informed, contemporary and historical, it will appeal to science fiction and fantasy fans, literary and cultural theorists, historians of popular culture, and any reader looking for fresh and enlivening approaches to the books, characters, and shows it discusses.'

- Karmen MacKendrick, Le Moyne College, USA, author of Counterpleasures

'This is an engagingly written and deeply engaged study of the surprisingly lengthy "love affair" between BDSM and American science fiction and fantasy. Whether re-reading relatively familiar material such as Delany's Triton or introducing new material such as Joss Whedon's recent Dollhouse series, Call's analyses are intriguing, enlightening, and always convincing. This is an important study that brings together two cultural practices BDSM and sf/f that were made for each other.'

- Veronica Hollinger, Trent University, Canada, co-editor of Science Fiction Studies
