I just read John Scalzi’s post where he takes issue with a current blogoversy about girls infiltrating the boyish world of science fiction literature. I adore what John Scalzi has to say about it, so wanted to spread his good news.
I have to make two notes here. 1) Although I run with (and am married to) a boy who knows a hell of a lot more than I do, from first-hand experience, about science fiction literature, most of my direct experience with it is with film and TV. However, 2) I have read Frankenstein several times, and I love that novel. Novel. Not qualified and ghettoized, it turns out, as genre fiction.
It’s a great novel. You should all read it.
