    Subversion: Science Fiction and Fantasy tales of challenging the Norm

    Subversion: Science Fiction and Fantasy tales of challenging the Norm
    'Traitor' or 'revolutionary.' These labels are two sides of the same coin, just as 'hero' or 'villain' depends on the point of view of the person telling the story. These are obvious concepts when spelled out in clear cut settings. Because of this, how one goes about subverting the norm (as a traitor or revolutionary) is based on what the norm is. What is normal in one society can be, and often is, taboo in another society. This allows tales of subversion to be subtle, blatant, personal, communal, and endless in variation.- From the Foreword by Jennifer Brozek
