Review: The Geek Feminist Revolution by Kameron Hurley

Monday, December 18, 2017

Why I Chose This Book:

All right, I’m about to do something I rarely do here on the blog… I’m going to review a nonfiction book. Yeah, you heard me, a nonfiction book. I read a lot of nonfiction for class and for fun. They mostly revolve around political books like Raven Rock by Garrett Graff or books that concern social politics like Bad Feminist by Roxane Gay or theory books, but this one is a tad different, but oh so worth reading if you like nonfiction essays.


The Geek Feminist Revolution by Kameron Hurley
Publisher: Tor Books
Release Date: May 31st, 2016
Genre: Non Fiction, Feminism, Essays

Synopsis:

A powerful collection of essays on feminism, geek culture, and a writer’s journey, from one of the most important new voices in genre.

The Geek Feminist Revolution is a collection of essays by double Hugo Award-winning essayist and science fiction and fantasy novelist Kameron Hurley. The book collects dozens of Hurley’s essays on feminism, geek culture, and her experiences and insights as a genre writer, including “We Have Always Fought,” which won the 2014 Hugo for Best Related Work. The Geek Feminist Revolution will also feature several entirely new essays written specifically for this volume.

Unapologetically outspoken, Hurley has contributed essays to The Atlantic, Locus, Tor.com, and elsewhere on the rise of women in genre, her passion for SF/F, and the diversification of publishing. (Goodreads)
