Reader Reviews

Average Rating of 4 from 1 reviews: ****
Daniel Tubau

This is a superb recopilation of the works of Charlotte Perkins Gilman. She edited by herself The Forerunner and write all the texts, poems, essays, novels (like Herland, a feminist Utopia). I recomend her essay A manmade world, our androcentric culture, in the issue number 2 of this volume.

Author of the Day

Alan Joshua
As a clinical psychologist and parapsychologist, Alan Joshua is fascinated with the human mind and everything that makes it tick. He combined his extensive knowledge with his passion for sci-fi in his action-packed fiction trilogy The SHIVA Syndrome, which has received rave reviews and has already been nominated for several awards. As our author of the day, we chat with Joshua about the inspiration behind his book, the immense amount of research that went into it and whether or not the human mind is still evolving.
