Lost in Space.  Probing Feminist Science Fiction and Beyond. by Marleen S. Barr
1993, Paperback

Archeologists and anthropologists discover other civilizations; science fiction writers invent them.  In this collection of her major essays, Marleen Barr argues that feminist science fiction writers contribute to post-modern literary canons with radical alternatives to mainstream patriarchal society.  Because feminist science fiction challenges male-centered social imperatives, it has been marginalized and dismissed from the canon - thus, lost in space.
