Questions for everyone!

My format of contact with the authors would probably be an interview or discussion more so than a direct letter. The questions I want to ask span across the wealth of feminist science-fiction authors we have discussed in class.

–       What biologic and technologic devices have helped you challenge gender and sexuality across your works?

–       Do you deliberately set out to challenge preconceptions of gender when you write your works, or does it come out naturally as a result of your personality/values/beliefs?

–       What relationships have you had with your fans? With fanfiction?

And then the questions pertaining to my personal projects would be directed to Ursula K. Le Guin, Pamela Sargent & Kate Wilhelm:

–       Why cloning?

–       How does cloning shift the power dynamics of society in your works?

–       What are the gendered implications do your cloning narratives?

Finally, because of the absence of Pamela Sargent correspondences in the archives, I would ask:

–       What was/is your relationship to other authors of the science-fiction community?
