dc.description.abstract One of the most innovative and interesting areas of contemporary literary production is feminist genre fiction - the feminist appropriation of the generic 'popular' literary forms, including science fiction, fantasy, utopian fiction, detective fiction and romance. This is genre fiction written frJPl a self-consciously feminist perspective, consciously encoding an ideology which is in direct opposition to the dominant gender ideology of Western society, patriarchal ideology. Not all women writers are feminist writers. Many writers work conscientiously within the dominant ideologies of gender, race and class; after all, that is the best way to make a living (Lovell, 1987 (A) f - and it does not preclude the expression of oppositional views within their texts, even if one suspects that these views are effectively subsumed by the conservatism which colours the text as a whole. The fiction in which I am interested here, however, does not admit this compromise.
