The others: Anthology of artificial women by Teresa Lopez-Pellisa
The book will be presented by the author in conversation with Naief Yehya, Mar Gómez Glez, Claudia Salazar, Yoss and Marcelo Cohen.
In this anthology, “the others” are artificial women, created from silicon, plastic, biotechnology, surgery… Women that are actually dolls, virtual beings. All of them represent a big part of females images of the XXI century in fantasy and science fiction.
The book is divided into three main tags that classify the women inside it depending in the raw material that they are made of: virtual women, biotech women, or women and robotic dolls.
Writers from Spain and Latin America have participated in the anthology, trying to cover the biggest number of countries, traditions and generations, searching for all the mentioned women that made and still make part in our history.
