Her work as appeared in venues such as The Atlantic, Locus, and Tor.com.
Winner of the 2017 BSFA and Locus Awards, The Geek Feminist Revolution is Hurley’s manifesto and her call to arms, her life story and her moving personal experiences. While her essays focus on the ongoing conversation within the science fiction community about the future of the genre, Hurley writes in a way that resonates with everyone. Her essays are universal. Assembled herein are dozens of entries from her blog, including the 2014 Hugo Award-winning “We Have Always Fought” and nine new essays written specifically for this collection. Startling in its openness and honesty, The Geek Feminist Revolution will captivate you from the first page with its wit and gravitas, its rage and its joy, its tactical profanity and moving eloquence.
“A call to arms for those who care about the future of science fiction and fantasy.”
“Kameron Hurley writes essays that piss people off, make them think, make them act. This is good stuff. Read it.”
“Hurley’s essays are a beacon signaling to writers in the trenches that they’re not alone, and they’re not imagining how hard it is to push against the mainstream, or how the culture shoves back ten times harder.”
—K. Tempest Bradford
“Filled me with blistering hope and rage. Amazing collection.”
