“This project is the first general reference work focusing on women’s contributions to science fiction and fantasy in fiction, nonfiction, poetry, film, television, comics, graphic novels, art, and music. Its purpose is to serve as a reference work for general readers on the historical presence and ongoing engagement of a diverse group of women in the creation and reception of science fiction and fantasy in literature, media, and the arts.
[…] Volume 2 contains shorter entries arranged alphabetically, on important writers and other figures, as well as on a number of topics, including national traditions of science fiction and fantasy from countries other than the United States. The essays and entries all contain lists of further readings, including timely and specialized websites that will aid those wishing to learn more about the topics.” (vii)

“Volume 2 begins with an alphabetical list of 230 entries, followed by a topical guide that groups related entries under ten categories:

  1. Awards and Publishing
  2. Biographical Entries: Artists, Editors, Fans, Scholars, and Others
  3. Biographical Entries: Authors
  4. Ethnicity/Race
  5. Fans and Fandom
  6. Genres
  7. National Literatures
  8. Sex and Gender
  9. Themes
  10. Visual Media

Also in volume 2 is a selected bibliography of scholarship on all aspects of science fiction and fantasy covered in this encyclopedia, including the foundational bibliographies, other types of reference works in the genre, and theory and applied criticism, in both journals and book form. This scholarship is a part of the historical and cultural context that has created the opportunity for this encyclopedia to be published.)” (xii–xiii)
