Gwyneth Jones


In this chapter, Jones reviews Ellen Datlow’s anthology, Off Limits: Tales of Alien Sex. Jones unpacks Datlow’s description of sex, gender and abuse and supplements the discussion with her knowledge of other authors, including Pat Cadigan and Ed Bryant, whose literature deals with the treatment of human sexual relations with aliens. In her review, Jones also points out the significance of female writers writing about sex.
