The table of contents for the project is as follows:
Politics on the Page
"No News Is Good News: What Science Fiction Leaves Out of the Future #1" by Gary Westfahl

"Space Opera Rules; But By Whom?" by Ross Hamilton
"Reason, Sexuality, and the Self in Libertarian Science Fiction Novels" by Greg Beatty

"The Future’s Bright? A Review of Shine: An Anthology of Optimistic Science-Fiction" by Deborah Walker
"Political Allegory: Receptions and Their Implications in V and District 9" by Shaun Duke (that's me!)
Race and Gender Politics

"Aliens at the Office Christmas Party: How to Write Subtle Discrimination" by Romie Stott
"Transracial Writing for the Sincere" by Nisi Shawl
That's a pretty impressive table of contents, don't you think? And, the cool thing is that this will eventually be a print publication, with all proceeds going to support Doctors Without Borders! For me, it's a win-win. I got an paper published and the publication of that essay may go towards helping people around the world, which makes me feel very good indeed. I'll let you all know when the book becomes available and I expect you all to buy it, even if you have interest in reading the essays. Heck, buy it and give it to an SF nut or something! Or, you can just give $20 to Doctors Without Borders instead, if you so choose (not sure if that's how much the book will cost, but I suspect not).
Oh, and if you have the time to read my essay, I'd appreciate thoughts and opinions. Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to go scream and run around my apartment in a fit of excitement.
