On Female Action Heroes
Long before I published my first story, one of my ambitions was to write an adventure story with a female protagonist. Joanna Russ beat everyone to it with her Alyx stories and novel. But, she admitted afterward, it was hard, hard, hard.
Today, it seems the easiest thing in the world. Just do it. But only because Joanna was there first.
Nothing that hasn’t been done before is easy until it’s been done before.
