What the critics say

“Without Judith Merril, neither science fiction nor Canadian science fiction nor Canadian literature nor the world at large would exist in their present form. Better to Have Loved is essential reading for anyone who’s interested in How Science Fiction Got That Way. In turning a jumbled heap of bright shards into this amazing book, Emily Pohl-Weary has accomplished a task I secretly thought impossible.” (Spider Robinson, author of The Free Lunch)

“The strongest woman in a genre for the most part created by timid and weak men.” (J.G. Ballard, author of Crash and Empire of the Sun
