That in itself was a remarkable record for a new author but it pales into insignificance when compared to her later achievement: between July 1946 and May 1949 her fiction was featured in an astonishing eighteen consecutive issues of the bimonthly magazine. Robot came along—and on the USA Network, of all places. The most common way to think of this is like the acts in a play, since many novelists still use this format for writing their own stories.

Huxley’s vision was an endpoint to the unrelenting advance of current-day corporate and social liberalism, i.e., of the so-called managerial-therapeutic regime. MFS: Modern Fiction Studies 56.2 (2010): 378-400. Such women are very common in contemporary action fiction.
