In Other Worlds: SF and the Human Imagination

In Other Worlds: SF and the Human Imagination - Margaret Atwood This is a collection of short stories, thoughts on other writers, and a few thoughts on her life mixed together in several essays. I was a closet sci fi geek growing up and Margaret Atwood was one of the authors I loved to read. You can find her influences on many young adult authors today, whether they want to admit it or not. This read gives a bit more insight to her writing and her uneasy relationship with the science fiction community at large. This is one of those books that you can easily pick up, read a chapter and come back for more later. It would make a wonderful gift for any Atwood fan.
