Vonda N(eel) McIntyre Critical Essays


McIntyre, Vonda N(eel) 1948–

An American science fiction novelist and short story writer, McIntyre won a Nebula Award in 1973 for Of Mist, and Grass, and Sand. Her fiction is frankly feminist and generally upbeat, for McIntyre writes science fiction "because it allows my characters to develop as far as their abilities will take them, unlimited by the crippling demands and unambitious expectations our society puts on us." (See also Contemporary Authors, Vols. 81-84.)
