"Real Lives Complicate Matters in Schrodinger's World: Pat Cadi- gan's Alternative Cyberpunk Vision." She blogs at, mostly with reviews of fantasy fiction and occasionally fantasy films. There are plenty of things that should go well with science fiction (the fact that Dust is a particle, the numerous technologies that look as if they came from various degrees of civilization, from Steam Punk worlds to things akin to those you'd see on hard science fiction (especially in the last book), the alternate evolutionary paths of life on Earth seen in some worlds like that of the mulefa, etc.), but there are plenty of themes that should connect it to at least Low Fantasy (the witches, the fact that Dust is conscious, the armoured polar bears, etc.) Neil Gaiman and Micheal Reaves' book Interworld features a multiverse organized as an arc, with the worlds on one side being ones where magic is in control, and worlds on the other where science is the dominant paradigm.

I see I distress you, and I grieve for it, but better now than later; and O, better a thousand times, Mr Male characters' universal reaction to females was the perception of them either as irrelevant or as sexual objects of their attention, not as persons in their own right. Meanwhile, another current of fantastic literature, the dystopia, was being developed by writers who became known outside of the genre SF cul- ture during the 1940s and 1950s ref.: Orphaned Lucy Pennant comes to Heap House as a servant, and Clod finds himself falling in love as he and Lucy uncover dark Iremonger family secrets.

She was a friend and sometime translator of Edith Wharton and attended the Wharton salons in Paris as well as the literary- circles overseen by Gertrude Stein and Alice B.
