• From slash to the mainstream: Female writers and gender blending men

      Woledge, Elizabeth; University of Chester (Kent State University Press, 2005)
      This article discusses fiction written by women, that focuses on male protagonists, representation of whose gender is facilitated by the theme of same sex intimacy. This group of texts forms a clear subset of both mainstream science fiction and fantasy as well as of slash fiction, but by no means accounts for the entire spectrum of any one of these genres.
