Supporting characters frequently dismiss the protagonist's beliefs that there is more to the mystery than the community believes. This was true of many stories of lost Atlantis, or those set in other realities where the laws of nature made magic possible or where the creatures of mythology still exist. Changer (1998) and its sequel, Legends Walking (1999), are much better. Aside from an introductory phase rich in 19th-century material, the course follows a thematic approach, devoting a week each to lecture, discussion, and readings (ancient, 19th-century, and modern) in speculative fantasy, weird sf, time travel/parallel worlds, speculative hard sf, aliens, robots, speculative soft sf, utopias/dystopias, and social sf.

Books average 32 pages with art on every page. Her pursuit takes her into the Arctic, where she encounters witchcraft as well as an intelligent race of bears who are armoring themselves for war. Vampire fiction survived the downturn, in large part because the image of the evil, repulsive vampire had been transformed by Anne Rice and others.

She hopes her boyfriend will act up today, so that she can use the excuse to dump him for being too possessive. My course attempts to do two things: to offer some sense of the history of the genre (I always begin with Frankenstein and The Time Machine) and to feature as many of the women writers as possible, if only because we are a women's college. Barrie also later wrote a screenplay, but it was not used for any of the subsequent movie versions.
