Alexei & Cory Panshin (1940 - )

Alexei Panshin is famous for his sf novel Rite of Passage and his unsympathetic criticism of Heinlein and the Old Guard writers. He has written only one S&S novel, with his wife, Cory. As first attempts go, itís a good one.

Joanna Russ (1937 - )

Russí single collection of S&S stories proves again what C. L. Moore proved in the 1930ís, that S&S need not be, a male-dominated, male-oriented sub-genre. Russí Alyx attacks just about every S&S stereo-types, making the Alyx series something of a parody without sacrificing serious story-telling. Even though Alyx never lacks for action, These stories are the best constructed in S&S, taking their place next to Fritz Leiberís for sheer artistic craft. Alyx later leaves her S&S milieu for an sf one in Picnic on Paradise.
