Margaret Atwood
“They look, I said. They look in all our rooms.
What for? he said.
I think I lost control then, a little. Razor blades, I said, Books, writing, black market stuff. All things we aren't supposed to have.”
Margaret Atwood, The Handmaid's Tale

Laura Resnick
“Good fantasy fiction: ... explores real human conditions through fantastic metaphors which universalize the characters' individual experiences to speak personally to us all.”
Laura Resnick
