Even beloved classics may raise difficult issues from the perspective of POC, queer, religious minority, or disabled readers. What are readers to do when they see themselves marginalized in stories they care about? How can we reclaim the role of the outsider? And how can we use these works to inform productive discussion of the speculative fiction canon and its future direction?
