I found this through links in my facebook feed. And when I realized she's the one who wrote the blog post about the fact that women have always fought, I just had to read it. And it didn't really disappoint. It was a bit fragmented at times, but so many good points. Everyone should read this really. ( )

2.5 stars. This book isn't what I expected. It would be better described as a collection of autobiographical essays, rather than any sort of treatise, discussion, or exploration of feminism and geekdom. The author and I are of a similar age and therefore have similar exposure within geekdom. Frankly, if you've been a part of the internet and fandom in the last decade or so there's nothing new here and most of it has been better written elsewhere. In fact, much of the commentary feels blunted and superficial and the author admits they don't speak out as much now that they have books they want published (in other words, now, when they have a platform, they don't want to lose any readers, which feels sort of anti-feminist in the year 2018).

The book has some basic principles I agree with, like kindness and consideration. It makes superficial attempts to call for care and strength but the book is at it's strongest when it quotes other writers who don't have the author's hang up about being loud against various abuses. If you are looking for a light glance at some of the things women have dealt with in society and fandom in the last decade or so, this book will do it. If you know the author or are looking for an autobiography or very basic opinions on writing, this book will do it. Overall it's just far to soft hitting for me and the one essay with any punch, We Have Always Fought, is widely circulated enough that this book feels repetitive in every way.

Quick read, covers a lot but in no real detail, lacks the guts and fire to spark anything in me. ( )

This is the 5th book I've read of Hurley and out of all of them, I'm going to have to rate this the best.

Why? Is it because it's full of rage at the real injustice in the world? Or because it's a call to action for every one of us to do and think better than we have been?

Both of these, I think.

But because I'm a White Male of traditionally acceptable sexuality...

Who has read Adrienne Rich and has generally read voraciously about feminism and the problems of the culture we live in, thinking and believing that women's studies are not only for women but is everyone's responsibility to consider seriously as we are responsible adults living lives that we can be proud of...

I'm honored to take up Hurley's call to action or at the very least continue the dialogue in all seriousness. Feminism isn't only for women. It's just as important that men understand what's at stake here. We're either all victims lashing out or we can grow the hell up and treat everyone we know with respect.

That being said, I also loved these essays for Hurley's honesty, her story, and even the redefinitions of her life. I respect her for passing through the gauntlet of those bad times and refusing to back down when she sees things that are wrong. We should all be this brave and stand up to fight for that which we honestly believe rather than fall back on the trap of politeness when it's not getting the job done. :)

I think this book out of all of this year's Hugo Nominees for Best Non-Fiction work is best suited to win, and it's not only because it deals with the writing process, issues with storytelling in culture, or even because it drills down into Gamergate and Sad/Rabid Puppies, but because it's plainly excellent and cohesive writing that packs a punch.

I must have just picked this up because I was intrigued by the title and the llama on the front, because I didn't realize until I got into it that it was about feminism within the scifi community. But as I am a scifi/fantasy fan this was fine. The essays were very well written, and reinforced social responsibility without being preachy. Plus, llamas! ( )

A collection of essays -- all, I believe, originally blog posts -- by Hugo-winning SF writer Kameron Hurley, in which she talks about writing, feminism, the importance of representation, dealing with criticism and online harassment, and the power of stories, among other things.

There's a fair amount of anger in these essays, but it's a focused, clear-headed, thoughtful sort of anger, and she's saying a lot of things that are very much worth paying attention to. ( )
