Deconstructing the Starships

Gwyneth Jones


In this chapter, Jones offers a review of Kristine Kathryn Rusch’s Alien Influences. She defines the boundaries between science fiction and fantasy and notes the difficulties that arise when writing about aliens, because of the fact that they have not yet been met by human society. Jones states that Alien Influences is fixated with alienation, instead of aliens, and provides a harsh reflection of humanity.
