Joanna Russ has written extensivelyNtilde;as novelist, short story writer, and criticNtilde;on feminism, science fiction, and fantasy. These essays, spanning almost twenty years of that career, range from RussOtilde;s consideration of the aesthetic of science fiction to a reading of Willa CatherOtilde;s lesbian identity as it emerges in her writing. To Write Like a Woman includes essays on horror stories and the supernatural: feminist utopias; Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley, the Ograve;motherOacute; of science fiction; popular literature for women (the Ograve;modern gothicOacute;); what the fascination with Ograve;technologyOacute; often hides in popular culture, especially in science fiction movies and Star Trek; and the feminist education of graduate students in English. As a writer, Russ also addresses theorists and critics of literatureNtilde;as they address her own work and the work of other writers.

Joanna Russ was born in New York City on February 22, 1937. She received a degree in English from Cornell University in 1957 and a MFA in playwriting from the Yale Drama School in 1960. She taught at various colleges and universities during her lifetime including a long stint at the University of Washington in Seattle. She was a critic and science fiction writer best known for books of criticism such as The Female Man (1975) and How to Suppress Women's Writing (1984) as well as the novel And Chaos Died (1970). She died on April 29, 2011 at the age of 74.
