It can occasionally feel that readers are only receiving half the experience, as posts sustain a life of their own online, with a reach far beyond the pages of a book. Passion and commitment permeate the writing as Hurley illuminates the online cultural vanguard from a feminist’s perspective.

Synopsis

A powerful collection of essays on feminism, geek culture, and a writer's journey, from one of the most important new voices in genre.

The Geek Feminist Revolution is a collection of essays by double Hugo Award-winning essayist and science fiction and fantasy novelist Kameron Hurley.

The book collects dozens of Hurley's essays on feminism, geek culture, and her experiences and insights as a genre writer, including "We Have Always Fought," which won the 2014 Hugo for Best Related Work. The Geek Feminist Revolution will also feature several entirely new essays written specifically for this volume.

Unapologetically outspoken, Hurley has contributed essays to The Atlantic, Locus Magazine, Tor.com, and elsewhere on the rise of women in genre, her passion for SF/F, and the diversification of publishing.

...The Geek Feminist Revolution is an incredibly readable book. It’s exactly the kind of thing you could devour in an afternoon at the beach, and then walk home looking at the world and wondering if you’re living in the same reality you were in this morning, because you see everything so completely differently.
